I believe Diehard batteries are made by Interstate. But for pice and warranty I would go with Craig's recommendation--Advance's Gold battery.

Made In PA. Great Value, once my interstate dies it will be replaced with one of these.

Optima Battery quality has really tanked since they moved production to Mexico.
^^ Pretty much this. I bought mine when they were Made in USA hence the so many trouble free years. However I have seen many of the new ones with issues. However, I have yet to see any other battery still do as well or handle as much abuse as Optimas though. However Durlast has started making their own AGM batteries. Since they are new I do not yet know how good they are.

All batteries are starting to be of questionable quality. To pay $30-40 more for a battery of equal or lesser warranty is just plain dumb. This is why the Advance battery is the "best deal" right now $80-90 with a 7/3 warranty is too good to pass up.

FWIW the OEM battery lasted 8 years in this '99 and I just had to replace a 5 year old Interstate....


Mopar now farms out their batteries to the cheapest bidder.....still good? Maybe.
