Bought an Interstate battery for my minivan recently -- I've heard good
things about them in the past, but have also heard that they no longer
deserve their reputation.

By the way, how long did your battery last, Rob?  I'm asking because
mine is still the original one at almost 125K/8.5 years (from delivery)
-- but the one in my '98 Grand Caravan died in 2.5 years. I have a
suspicion that its location may have something to do with it --
batteries probably dry out much more easily in the engine bay.
