Bosch Premium Performance Battery Group, Size 78DT is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will always buy a Bosch battery Bosch batteries work well, with plenty of cranking power for cold starts, but the best part is the warranty. With 3-year full replacement and a 96-month prorate, the warranty is the best part. After 4 years, the Bosch battery in my dad's truck developed a bad cell. We took it in to our local Pep Boys and they confirmed this. We ended up paying about $35 for a brand new battery! Whenever my vehicle batteries stop cranking as well as they once did, they are being replaced by a Bosch battery. I have done 3 so far and have not been disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Underfiled and expect to fail I am satisfied with the battery and purchased it specifically for additional accessory GM posts. Unfortunately after installation I noticed that the less than 30 day old never charged by me battery had muratic acid only covering the plates. Not interested in adding water to the bottom of the fill line if it was never filled properly with muratic acid as it will dilute the PH. Need to contact manufacture for followup as the dealer informed me they do not fill them. Probably done at PepBoys warehouse. If I can find acid I will add it otherwise make sure the battery fails prior to warranty ending as it was not serviced properly prior to distribution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service and easy transaction This is the right battery for the job. Paid for it online and saved $25. Scheduled the appointment online and was put ahead of another battery and a flat tire repair. It fit as expected and has performed reliably since it was purchased a few weeks ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than ample amps The design of twin posts and the compactness of its size are excellent.The warranty is one of the best if not the best for this size battery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be aware of position of terminal posts. Usually, batteries are installed in vehicles so that when you are in front of the vehicle looking back at the engine bay, you see that the negative post of the battery is on the left and the positive on the right. My 1993 Range Rover has a metal bar-clamp to hold the battery in (see photo). It mounts on the top right edge of the battery, and pulls the battery down and to the left, towards the inner fender. I use the top posts of the battery. The posts on this Bosch battery are positioned closer to the edges of the width of the battery case than most other batteries (I had a Die-Hard before). This proximity allowed the positive terminal to be too close to the metal bar-clamp. Even with taping the clamp, there would be a chance of a direct short caused by vibration and jolting of the truck in its travels. It was therefore necessary for me to install the battery in reverse position, so that the negative terminal is the one closer to the clamp rather than the positive one. Contact between the negative terminal and the clamp would not create a problem, since they are both 'ground'. It was also necessary to re-route the cables so that they would reach the posts. In some instances, one might have to install longer battery cables. If you have a vehicle that installs the battery with a clamp at the bottom of the battery case, then the above issue is of no concern. However, in either installation, since the terminals on this battery are in the center of the width of the battery and not in the corners as they are on most other batteries, the battery cables will have to reach over a longer distance, and so might have to be re-routed or replaced with longer cables.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for starting in below zero temps. I received an email from pep boys with a 10% discount when ordering online. I checked around and for the same price as batteries with 200 - 300 less cold cranking amps I was able to purchase this battery. Ordered online then was able to pick it up at my local pep boys immediately. Installed the battery during a recent cold snap of below zero temps for a week. Starts every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Battery - Tight Fit We got this battery for an Acura MDX. The top terminals are in the center of the battery, not to one side. The positive terminal just fit the battery with no slack in it at all. The ground terminal fit properly. Overall, the install went very quick. Great warranty on the battery.

Runs excellent, not one single problem, install was quick about 30 mins-2 people ahead of us. Service people were prompt and courteous. We ordered & scheduled install online, brought in my print out/receipt-was super simple and convenient. Would highly recommend their online installation service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Battery Excellent battery at a good price. I like that it is dual core because often I need to change batteries between different cars. Also pep boys is one of few that still have prorated warranty after free replacement period.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This replaced one with a bad cell under warranty First experience with Bosch dual terminal in a work environment. It's under 4 years old. We like dual terminals for use with inverters on construction site where power tools are used on a quick fix and you don't need to bring in a generator. It never failed to crank the truck, it just got really slow. Brought it back to have it checked and they just swapped it with NO hassle

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does not fit 2003 Acura TL This battery does not fit 2003 Acura TL, because the connecters are located in the center, not towards the left edge. SKU 9998137 is the one that fits perfectly.
