AAA Complaint - AAA Battery Service Convenient, but Batteries are Awful
The AAA Battery Replacement program is very convenient, as they dispatch a service vehicle with a new battery to your location and install it on the spot. The cost is very competitive with an off the shelf battery. Here is the problem: The batteries they provide are awful, just terrible. Simply put, they are the worst performing batteries I've ever had in any car I've owned---and I've been driving for about 30 years now. I've had three of these batteries. Fooled me once, shame on me. Fooled me a second time, shame on me again. Third time was a warranty coverage---that one is now on the fritz too. The batteries last an average of 2 years. The one that just quit on me today was about a year and a half old. Worst part is that they've now become stingy with warranty replacement---claiming that the spent battery is "good" even though it clearly will not hold a charge. I wish they'd charge a little more and provide top quality batteries instead of the garbage they offer.
