Purchased a new Sears Die-Hard Platinum battery for my 2004 Chevy Pickup. After sitting for about 7 days, it was completely dead.
Took it back. They gave me a new one saying the first one was defective. The second battery did the very same--dead after 7 days. I took it back to the Sears store in the Ridgmar mall area of Fort Worth, TX.
After giving me a bad time that their batteries NEVER fail, they gave me my money back as a "customer satisfaction adjustment". Thinking that I may have a short in my truck, I took it to a Chevrolet dealership to check it. After two days of tests--NO shorts, no bad wires, everything was working as it should. BOTTOM LINE: Two Sears Die-Hard Platinum car batteries in a row failed and were defective.
Consumers Reports rated the battery the best there is. They sure didn't see these batteries! OH, and by the way, sears told me AFTER I bought the batteries that a special charger was needed to charge the battery.
The battery was $189.00. Don't Buy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
