I purchased a "new" battery from Autozone for my yamaha touring motorcycle in late December, 2012. As I was stranded and in a hurry I guess I was too trusting and didn't ask enough questions.
Here I am in early June with a battery that will not take a charge and definitely won't start the bike. I return the battery to the store and sure enough "bad battery/replace!" is the verdict. I am then informed that the battery had only a 3 month warrantee. On further review the date code was deciphered and it was determined that the battery was made in 2010!
I paid over $100 for a battery nearly 3 years old and was only given 3 months warrantee. Don't you have an obligation to rotate your stock and protect your customers? Autozone will not get any more of my money as they are concerned only with profit and no sense of obligation to quality.
I took my money elsewhere and bought a NEW (within 2 months) battery with a 2 YEAR warrantee. Thanks for the lesson in "buyer beware" Autozone.
Monetary Loss: $105.
