Product Description

Optima D51R YellowTop battery provides the extra performance and deep-cycling capability that your vehicle demands if it has a lot of accessories like running lights, high-performance stereo/AV system, winches, or hydraulics. The unique SpiralCell design provides a strong and clean power source, ensuring the safety of you, your family and the environment. The Optima battery is ideal for seasonal use because of its very low self-discharge rate. That means you can store your seasonal vehicles all winter without regular charging and still spring out of the starting block when winter is over.

My D51R went bad after a month. Optima says take it back to whom you purchased it from. I said Amazon, they said "oh no." Optima will not honor the 36 Month Warranty and Amazon said I'm stuck because I can't ship it back -it's hazardous material and it's beyond the 30 day return policy. "We are real sorry, but there's nothing we can do." So if you are going to buy a battery from Amazon - you will be stuck - without any remedy. Join the suckers club with me.

All the reviews that say their battery failed, and Amazon would not honor the warranty, are dead wrong. Amazon sent me a replacement battery at no charge, and told me to keep my old battery and dispose of it. If you try and do the return via the website it will not allow you, because they will not accept the return of the old battery for safety concerns, but if you talk to the Large Items Customer Service center, they will honor it without a hesitation. All these people complaining simply did not make a five minute phone call.

As for the quality of the battery, I have 3 other Optima's that have been incredibly reliable. My oldest is over four years, this one being my fourth, and the only one to fail after about 13 months. I consider them to be the best AGM battery for the price at only $30-$50 more than an OE flooded lead battery which typically only have a 1-2 year warranty compared to Optima's 3 year.

And to beat a dead horse a little more, the Amazon warranty is clearly stated, if you have a look:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=15015721

"Automotive Items with a Published Manufacturer's Warranty

If you have purchased an automotive item shipped from and sold by Amazon.com, Amazon will directly honor the manufacturer's published warranty. Please contact Amazon Customer Service for assistance with a warranty claim.

For items purchased from a seller other than Amazon.com please contact the seller."

Installed this battery ("R" means reverse polarity) in my 1992 Miata this morning and it fit well. It's maybe an inch taller than the Westco battery or OEM Panasonic battery, so I had to extend the threaded rod that holds the top bracket, but otherwise it went in easily and the polarity was correct. The car fired right up, so I'm happy so far. I'll post again if I have any problems.

I also bought it through Amazon, and the warranty's no good.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS BATTERY ! There's a lot better & cheaper, too.

I bought this battery for my 2006 Acura TSX in July 2010 based on the rave reviews. It lasted 1 year and 10 months and that "wonderful" three year warranty is useless when purchased from Amazon (not Amazon's fault, but Optima's as they make you deal with the seller for replacement and you can't ship a battery back to them). When I took the battery in to Autozone to have it tested they said they see more dead Optima batteries than any other brand. They actually had two dead ones sitting behind the counter. I now have a new Duralast from them with 36 month free replacement warranty that I can actually use (walk in with the battery, walk out with the new one), an 8 year limited warranty, AND it was CHEAPER! Long story short, save your money and stay away from this "premium" battery. You aren't getting what you pay for.

The description of this battery stated that it was made to fit Honda Civics specifically, which is the application that I wanted it for. The only problem is that the top is contoured in such a way that the top mounting bracket does not fit properly and a shim must be made so that the clamp will clamp and not slide back and forth and side to side.

I chose this battery over the Odyssey which had better cca for pole orientation. Optima kept the terminals on top so that my stock connectors could be used, with the Odyssey they would have to be modified.

Taller and heavier than the original battery in my 1996 Miata but fits fine. Need a longer J bolt but they are cheap and easy to get. Lots of cranking power. Only time will tell how long it lasts.

this is the second failure of the same model optima battery that i have had in 6 months or less.
Please do not get me wrong they have a good product but it has gone downhill since manufacturing has been shipped off ot mexico. i was an optima dealer when the company first started back in the early 90's and the product was absolutely bullet proof. nothing better. now in addition to this optima failing twice, it has been replaced once already i have to switch to another brand of AGM battery. in fact i have heard from 3 major retailers that they have stopped selling them due to the issues.

as a note amazon did refund the purchase price of the battery after a long time on hold. and i had to educate the customer service rep on the fact that they are liable for the warranty service per optimas warranty service form.
