Default Best Battery

Hey everyone,
what's a good brand battery to buy for an 01 cruiser. Also, are 550 cca's enough?

Stock is 510 CCA on my 08PT. Have had good service and good luck with Interstate.

Interstate is good. They are the OEM replacement suppliers. If you buy a battery from a dealership then there is about a 90% chance is was Interstate. I've worked at Mopar and Hyundai dealerships and they are all supplied by Interstate. Top of the line is OPTIMA but very pricey.

I just replaced mine 2 days ago. Go ahead and laugh but I had the AutoZone Duralast battery. It was the 2-year guaranteed battery (middle range) with (I think) 570 CCA. When we took the old one out, the date on the side said 2004 so I can't complain about a 6+ years battery life.

Funny thing is, it was still doing great without any problems till one day a couple weeks ago when I left my lights on all day when I went to my Sheriff job. Had to call my Chevron road service to jump start it. Took it home to put on my battery charger but it didn't seem to want to keep a full charge after that.
