Daughter was stranded..called Walmart to setup appointment for a new battery. Confirmed that they had one in stock.
After towing car to Walmart, and having them install their "best" battery..we was told it wasnt a battery that she needed..but an alternator. Great, thats for the battery. Anyhow, drove the car home with the intent of getting an alternator installed at a reliable car maintance shop. Next day, left it there while they checked it for several hours trying to locate problems as to why we was having problems with this car (we recently has a alarm system put into it and thought that was the issue).
When they was done, they told me that the only thing they found was a bad battery (the one from Walmart, purchased 24 hr previously). Confused that having 2 bad batteries, the one Walmart replaced and now THEIR battery. Maintaince shop assured me they checked out everything, alternator, starter, alarm..and the only thing was this battery wasnt pulling the energy. OK..drove it back to Walmart, with documentation from the shop about the battery, and they refused..REFUSED to replace it.
They ran a handhead test and confirmed the battery was good. Back and forth..had mechanic call the manager while I was there.. and short temper manager said basically...tough.
So now...this 3 year battery that cost 70 plus bucks is useless..like the manager.
Monetary Loss: $65.
