Rated 5 out of 5 by RACU73 Stands up to the 2014 winter
I had an after market remote starter installed when I got my new 2010 Honda Fit. The tiny battery that came with it couldn't take the extra draw in cold weather and so for years I put up with jumping my car on 20 degree weather or colder. I finally decided to bite the bullet and invest in the biggest battery I could fit in my Fit that was rated to handle to cold weather. This decision came just in time as Albany NY had the coldest winter on record in 2014 with temps reaching 20 below zero. The car hasn't needed a single jump even after sitting idle for the weekend which used to guarantee I would need a jump with the factory battery. If you live in cold weather this battery is worth every penny and Pep Boys is the place to have it done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IMSlankman It works! Great little battery my Honda Fit loves it.
This is a great little battery... hard to find but PepBoys had it. Everyone else told me it would take two-days to get it and they were going to charge me 15 - 20.00 more for it. PepBoys had it and installed it for less... and I bought it online and setup my appointment. Thank goodness PepBoys had there act together. Great service and a great price; Thank you Manny, Moe & Jack!

Rated 3 out of 5 by HiAltitudeFitFreak Honda Fit battery OK but needed a Trickle Charge
2 issues: The website hinted that the product would be ready the day I ordered it. It actually took 5 days to get to my store, so be warned when you buy from Pep Boys online. It may take awhile.
Second, the brand new battery for the Honda Fit had a voltage that was below spec when I got it home, so I charged it with my trickle charger, and it took all night to get a green light on the charger that it was ready. Now that it's in the Fit, it seems fine, but it would be nice if they charged them up with a fresh charge before they gave it to you.
This Honda Fit battery is a bizarre - and very expensive - small battery that only fits one application: The Fit. The price at Pep Boys was consistent with the market, but the slow delivery made me lose my preferred date to install it. To me, this was a ho-hum purchase. Not good, but not bad since I got their rebate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dale Could not believe Pep Boys had this Battery
I have a 2009 Honda Fit. The battery is not much bigger than a motorcycle battery. I checked every auto parts store in my area and on the internet. Only Honda had the battery, until I checked Pep Boys. Not only did they have the battery, the warranty was way better than Honda and the price was much lower. Caulk one up for Pep Boys and Bosch!
