My battery died on me as well today. This is the 3rd battery in 6 years. At least this one was free since I was within the 42 month warranty period. By the way the battery is an A/C Delco 34pg battery.

Unhappy 2015 LT Battery Issues

I have a 2015 LT that has had battery issues twice now.

Last summer (2018) my battery died several times. Was able to revive it but it happened several times. Took a couple visits to the dealer before they would replace the battery. They kept telling me the battery, charging system, and electrical system in general tested good. Eventually, they said I had a dead cell.

Here it is a year later and my battery has died twice in the last week. And the dealer reports my battery, charging system and electrical system checks out. There are no draws.

Not looking forward to a repeat of last summer. Living in Arizona, a reliable car is a must. Any suggestions?

Imo it is hard to beat walmart maxx batteries for the money. That was what I put in our car after the battery that came in the car from the factory failed. Just replaced another battery a couple weeks ago. Got almost 6 years on the last walmart everstart maxx battery on our durango. With all the electronics in that vehicle, rear entertainment and as much as it sits not running with my kids watching was impressed that that battery lasted that long. Replaced it with the same maxx battery. Counter girl at the auto center told me that the maxx batteries do still have a 5 year warranty. I asked how long they were free replacement and she said she was not sure, according to walmart's site they still carry a 3 year free replacement and are then pro rated the remaining 2 years.

My 6 year constantly asks why. What adults can learn from 5 and 6 year olds, to listen with your ears and mind open. Hard to learn when you don't listen ......

I've been using Walmart batteries for decades, and always get at least 5years out them. I've also had good luck out of original equipment Delco batteries. We have a '13 Camaro convertible that rarely gets driven and the it's finally getting a bit weak. The batteries been in it since February 2013.

I have had good luck with autozone duralast gold. I put one in my Cutlass May of 2000 and it's still going strong. Yes, you read it right 19 years!

I also have the factory installed delco in my 2004 Alero. Car was purchased 11-2003.

That's amazing battery life. What kind of battery maintenance are you doing? How often do you drive these cars?

^+1. I remember batteries lasting 12+ yrs. on my older cars. I chalked it up to a lot less electronics being used. Maybe they're just not making them like they used to, lol! They're sure as hell pricier, lol!!! Along with starters, alternators, etc.

On modern cars, I'd say that 5 years is about the "normal" battery life now. Cars today are a lot different than they were even 20 years ago due to all of the electronics.

The 1970 has had zero done to it! I don't even unhook it in the winter months. The Alero is full electronics rig. Again, the only thing is winter storage is to disconnect the negative cable.

Both have a couple of hours of 3 amp charge before waking up from the winter slumber.

The Cutlass I bought at 52K it now has 70K at 22 years with me being the care taker.

The Alero I am the original owner, it has only 10,600 miles. Never be in the snow or salt!

So the average is around 700 miles on each per year.

I wish I could pay $170 for a battery. With my insane sound system I had to get a high output/capacity battery. For a mere $400.
