I had a show truck since 2004 that I just sold a few months ago. I had an Optima Yellow Top Battery installed in it after I kept having problems with my stock battery. Let me tell you, this battery was absolutely great. I had a pretty serious sound system in my truck at the time and with my old battery the headlights used to dim when the stereo put out a lot of bass, after I installed the Yellow Top Optima my system sounded better than ever and none of my lights were dimming. I now have optima batteries in all my vehicles including my brand new honda accord. Instead of waiting for a problem with the stock battery I just went ahead and picked up an Optima for it so there would be no worries. I've been using these batteries and so have the members of my family for about 5 years now and we've never had any issues at all. I highly recommend picking one of these up for your car the next time you need a battery. They may be a little more expensive, but they are definitely worth it.
