2017 Subaru Outback, Limited w/Eyesight
I upgraded to an Optima within the first year.Has anyone replaced the OEM lame battery with a better one?
Was doing some work on our 3.6 and after 2 hours with the dome lights on (yes, my fault for not shutting off) a dead battery quickly ensued. While charging I saw it had all of 490 CCA, which to me says it may be weak and underpowered. Just replaced battery in my older Legacy with whatever Sears unit Consumers liked. Something like 700 CCA and, I perhaps wrongly assume, has more capacity. About $100. The battery tray has ample room it would seem.
Anyone dump the factory battery for a bigger and, I hope,, better one? If so, why? What did you get?
