Battery

Ok... maybe not as big a deal as getting Midlan or NCO off a CR, but had a good karma event today.   Battery went bad in my car, took it to the store for a core charge.  Guy scanned it and said I should get a break off a new one.   I got a break, full replacement, no cost.  Saved me $217 for a new battery!  Just a feel good story.  :smileyhappy:

Walmart.  Guy there was great!  Asked if I needed him to look up the specifics on installing it or anything else.  Was a good experience.

Re: Battery

I'm assuming it was.  I was going to take my car to the Cadillac dealership when I remembered I changed the battery out 3 years ago when it crapped out on me.  It was late and I was out of town so I bought one at Walmart.  I decided to go back there and get another thinking it might have a pro-rated warranty or something but I didn't have the receipt.  The guy just scanned it and I got a new one for free.
