Here is a summary of ALL the Interstate auto and marine 12-volt batteries sold by Costco (previously Kirkland). This information comes straight from the Interstate Car Battery Catalog found at Costco. I created this page, because Costco offers no online information on Kirkland auto batteries. Not all batteries are available at all locations. The following availability is at the Santa Cruz, CA 95060 Costco. google_ad_client = “ca-pub-9352385950433453”; google_ad_slot = “9542028758”; google_ad_width = 300; google_ad_height = 250;

Price doesn’t guarantee quality when it comes to car batteries. In fact, in testing, cheap car batteries often come close to expensive ones, and sometimes outclass them. In years past, we and other experts have lauded Costco’s Kirkland brand batteries, but alas, as explained in the section on the best passenger car batteries, Kirkland batteries are no more. Costco now offers Interstate batteries instead — and while Interstate is a widely well-regarded battery, the value isn’t quite the same. That said, those interested in Costco batteries can see our take on Interstate batteries in our discussion of batteries for heavy-duty use elsewhere in this report.

No experience with the new Costco battery brand, but I’ve used their Kirkland batteries for years in both my Ford truck and Corolla and had excellent results in both. Consumer Reports has a battery rating report they publish once a year or so, and in the last one I think they said which battery brands was best depended on what group-size of battery your car used. Kirkland was best for certain groups, but other brands topped the list for other groups. Suggest to read that report before purchasing a new battery.

“One thing that I consider important is, the date a battery was manufactured. I want a,fresh battery. WalMart has a high turnover, so I often make my battery purchases there.” Wal-Mart batteries (manufactured by Johnson Controls, I believe, a leading battery manufacturer), have little month/year stickers on them. Their batteries usually have the current month and year or the previous month on them. They are usually very fresh. The dust on top of some other sellers’ batteries speaks for the lack of turn-over. I like that there are Wal-Mart stores all over the place and open on week-ends if a warranted battery fails. CSA

EverStart batteries are made by the same company (Johnson Controls) that makes some of the premium brands (DieHard and Interstate, for example), and is the same company that made Costco’s Kirkland line. Like the DieHard, the EverStart MAXX-35N carries a three-year warranty, with free replacement if it fails to hold a charge during that time. In addition, the maker also offers a two-year prorated warranty after the initial three years are up. A few owners say they did have to make a warranty claim, and Walmart replaced the batteries with no problems — even, a couple of times, when the battery would still start the car but capacity tested low on Walmart’s meter. And unlike Sears, Walmart installs batteries for free.

If the battery is more than three months old, it can begin to sulfate from sitting on the shelf. And unless you have access to a battery charger with removes sulfation, don’t expect long battery life.

The next to check is the reserve capacity of the battery. This indicates in minutes how long the battery will operate the electrical system in a vehicle if the charging system were to fail. This rating depends on if wipers/headlights are on for the driving conditions. But what reserve capacity is also good for is, for modern vehicles with all the modules/computers that have Keep Alive/Program memories, a higher reserve capacity can prevent the battery from going flat if the vehicle sits for long periods of time.

I have bought the Kirkland and it did not last 3 years. I am in CA desert so it might have to do with the heat. The good thing about Costco is their return policy. You can return it within the warranty period and no questions asked, no testing. The new battery is going to cost more this time due to inflation, but you still save some.

Motor oil, gasoline, and batteries: If the motor oil meets the specifications for s,specific car, if the gasoline meets the octane requirements and the battery is the right size group, has,sufficient CCA ,for the region and has a recent date of manufacture, I don’t think the brand makes any difference for oil, gasoline or the battery..
