AAA Complaint - AAA battery dissatisfaction
FONTANA, CALIFORNIA -- I obtained a battery from AAA in late 2008. The battery installation was $124.49. Now at the beginning of 2010 I am having problems with this battery and it is not the first time. This time after 2 days of not driving my car it did not start. It only started after a cable boost from my neighbor. I called the place that installed the battery and they told me I could come in to get a replacement. Then I get there and find out that the driver was out and they had to do a diagnostic test first to show that the battery was bad. I was told the driver would return in about one-half hour. When I returned about one-hour later the driver was still unavailable and they said they would come to my residence when they could. The battery tested good but there NO problems with the drain test, the starter test or the charging system test. When I raised heck with AAA I was told that another person would come out and do a second test. Well it has been at least double the time it usually takes them to arrive and I am still waiting. I suspect this battery is borderline. I will probably go some place else. Why throw good time and money after bad?
