I have a less then 2 yr-old Everstart Walmart car battery. It died, and after spending more than an hour at Walmart customer service and talking to 2 managers, I still don't have a replacement, even though it's marked as a Walmart battery, says 2 year free replacement on it, and is marked with the manufacture date of 12/15.
Anywhere else, they see it's their battery, look at the date on the battery, and you're out of there in 5 minutes. Here, they can't find the serial number in their computer, so that's the customer's fault, and they won't do anything. All I know is that I bought a Walmart battery thinking it would be easy to do the warranty, and it's been sitting in my tractor for the almost 2 years until it died. Walmart management just looks at their computer, and screw the customer.
Do now I have a core to take to a reputable battery dealer, that does honor warranties. NO MORE WALMART ANYTHING THAT HAS A WARRANTY WITH IT!@!! Actually, that was my 2nd attempt at a 2nd Walmart. At the first one, the assistant manager said that they don't do battery replacements, and the warranty is from Everstart, and you have to call their 800 number and get a voucher.
I told him that didn't make any sense, and when I called Everstart, they confirmed that the replacement has to be done at Walmart [if you can], and there is no such thing as a voucher for a bad battery. So 2 wasted trips to Walmart: first because of incompetent management giving wrong information, and secondly because of incompetent management not honoring their warranty that is printed right on their battery.
