    Pricey also with Thunder Auto? I used to buy parts there before and they were at the least, cheaper than Autoworld.
    Sorry for the super late reply. We had interstate batteries before (around 98-2000?) got mine sa CATS greenhills. It's a good thing your LC80 is repaired na. I got the mirrors na with LED signal,heated and auto dimming in ebay for 11,000 pair na shipped. thunder wants 21,000 each.

    same here, bought AC Delco for our Sentra and it last lest than a year. Replace it with Motolite Gold and it last 3.5yrs.

    Now what I did is wrap the battery with the insulator na nilalagay sa roof ng house. so far 1yr and 7 months na yung Motolite Gold sa Swift namin and it still kicking.

    Motolite wont last long on american v8 and the cca is too low. 6 months lang ang motolite sa e150 namin. Bumubukol.

    Sir what is the purpose of the insulator? I have been using Motolite Gold in my vehicles and so far it averages to last at least 3.5 years without the insulator.

    I would also agree with TS, my Cruze is also less than 1 year, but I had to replace the AC Delco battery that came with the car. Although its less than a year, my milleage is more than 10K km. So its not under warranty. Warranty of AC Delco on my 2010 Cruze is 1 year or 10K KM whichever comes first. I replaced my with Motolite.

    My other rides battery last for at least 24 months, yung sa Strada ko, more than 3 years before I needed to replace the battery. GS Brand, which came standard with the car.

    haha ako din it took 3 years and 5 months for my GS stock battery to die galing ng battery ng strada.

    im assuming na to prevent heat from the engine bay to affect the battery... Will try this pag nagpalit din ako ng battery.

    Maybe with the insulator the battery life may exceed 4 years? My Chevrolet Trailblazer LTZ has a battery enclosure that may serve also as an insulator. It may also protect the engine parts from harmful chemicals from the battery in case of leak. My other vehicles do not have the enclosure but it is a standard with the Trailblazer.
