Which Car Battery


I have looked online for Eveready car batteries and can't find which auto parts sells them. We wanted another Eveready because the last one lasted for almost 8 years. Does anyone have a suggestion for another battery which is a good one and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

You will get good service life out of any battery made by Johnson Controls. Interstate and Autozones batteries are made by JCI.

Thanks fellows, I settled on a Bosch battery. The old days of $30 batteries are gone. I think Broughton is right, Energizer took Eveready's place. I really do appreciate all of your help.
