Rated 1 out of 5 by GeorgiaDriver Worthless!
Bought this battery because it was the "premium" choice.
Bought it in November 2014and had to replace it in February 2015. Might have been a one-off lemon/manufacturing issue since even the cheapest of batteries last longer than that but who knows.
Worked great for about a month then slowly started to lose a charge. Took it in to a PepBoys Service center and the confirmed that the battery would no longer hold a charge and to their credit they replaced it under warranty but it was still a huge hassle and I have limited faith that the replacement will perform any better.

Happy Happy Joy Joy! It was just as it was advertised, so it gets four stars, what else is there to say! They would get five stars if they went above and beyond what was advertised and expected.
Imagine if your grocery store was like this and you had to rate every product you purchased! How annoying would that be?

Rated 4 out of 5 by gspbs Good battery
I had slow cranking issues while starting the car, after installing the new battery issue resolved, car starts fine even in cold weather (<10 degrees F), I shopped around and found pep boys price to be the lowest for the battery.

Consumer Reports rates the Bosch battery as the best. So the review categories about quality, durability, etc. are senseless, unless I remember to update this in 3 or 4 years. I ordered on-line and picked up at the store, changed it in the parking lot, and returned the core. A quick, seamless experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Excellent product and installed on time
I received excellent service from Pep Boys on this item. I scheduled an appointment on the web page, arrived at 8 AM the next morning and was out the door in an hour as promised. They also did an oil change at my request after arriving at the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shotcaller6c Better Battery than OEM
The reason for the purchase was that Nissan would not swap out a defective battery that was under warranty and kept going dead every 2 weeks or so... i got tired of the games and spent about $100 on this battery and now my fears are gone. it's been 3 or more weeks since purchase and i am now so confident that I took the portable charger back into the house... No Need and the service at Pep boys will go on record as better than the dealer ship with no surprises... Love Me Some Pep Boys! Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ppavelka Starts right up
I bought this battery because of the name recognition and longer warranty. Worth the little bit of extra money to me. Seems to work great, my Infiniti starts quickly and reliably now. Can't say about longevity yet, it's only been a month.

I like the Bosch Battery. I have had it for a few weeks now and have no complaints. I hope the Winter results will be just as smooth and reliable.

Within 2 weeks the battery died. After the.battery was returned, it was determined the battery contained a bad cell. Nevertheless, I was charged a$1.50 fee even though the battery was defective. It's been less than a week; therefore, I don't know whether this battery is the best quality:-(

Rated 4 out of 5 by DrMemory Yup, it's a battery :-)
Yes, it's a size 35 battery, it fits, and it starts my car very nicely, thanks. Plain old black, not the sexy colors like some batteries -- but, then again, I have heard of Bosch. I'll know more in 4-6 years.

This battery has been used in our car while traveling to very hot areas (106+ degrees to 24 degrees) as well as cold areas and has started up every time without any hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KACKI Recent purchase of Bosch Battery
This was a great experience for a few reasons. I was allowed to buy online AND have installed the next day. I was also allowed the huge online discount and also the Reward Points which provided a great total discount on this product. The entire process was flawless and the car is running great with it's new Bosch Battery. Thanks Pep Boys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Toyota8 Replacement Battery
The Bosch battery has performed as expected - no problems and consistent starts. It replaced a battery that was 8 years old (no idea how my daughter had it last that long). The Pep Boys team installed this battery and cleaned up the terminals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by stargazer I'm trusting the recommendation made by staff.
I don't know how to rate a battery. The price was right. I was made to feel at ease and I trusted the staff's recommendation. The battery was promptly installed and it has been working just fine.
The "counter fellow" who was coordinating the work flow, did an excellent job informing me when my car would be next and when it was just about done. His communication loop was EXCELLENT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Geek Bosch has an excellent size 35 battery; CR even agrees.
Bosch has the best battery and worth the money. And, the price is discounted nicely when purchased online plus the payment is made at the store. Just call the store for inventory in advance. Bought a size 35 Bosch battery over 2 years ago for another car and it cranked great in that 0 degree weather we have been experiencing.

This is the third Bosch battery I've purchased for family cars and all have performed perfectly. Better yet, using the Pep Boys feature of buying online and picking up at the store allowed my son to pick it up and get it installed without waiting for me to get off from work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fernleydriver Excellent Performance
I had my previous battery for 2-1/2 years. It had a CCA of 500. I bought a battery tester. The old battery failed the load test on a freezing morning taking into account the 500 CCA. But this battery has a 640 CCA. Under freezing conditions, it will enable me to start the car with no problem. The voltage without the car running was about 12.5 V. With the car running the voltage was about 14.2 V. With the load of the tester voltage was 10.8 V. It passed all three tests. Even under freezing conditions the car has no trouble starting. I highly recommend this battery.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LBJ1 Disapointing experience
I was towed back to PEP boys 10 days after the battery was installed. It turned out that the problem was the starter, not the battery. I now no longer trust PEP boys to correctly identify a service issue as it cost me a new battery and starter when all that was needed was a starter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RFG1 Great Price, great installation!
Replacement for a 6 year old OEM in an Infinity, not much working room to remove and install but install done perfectly at Pep Boys, took them an hour due to the amount of work involved BUT at no extra charge to me due to the free installation. Saved a bundle over returning to the Dealer and ratings for this battery much better than OEM

Rated 2 out of 5 by Chris55 Useless and costly online appointment
Upon arriving I saw a black Friday bonus or $20 for batteries bought that day. I was informed that I would not be given the $20 credit even though there was nothing in writing online or in the paper ad that said so. Then I was told the battery could not be installed at the appointment time and that I would have to return 3.5 hours later. I groaned and the polite man behind the service desk agreed to take care of the order himself. I don't see how you could deprive me of the $20 discount. I paid for the Bosch battery on the day of the promotion!
