Correction ...
Johnson Controls is the manufacturer ... they make Interstate brand as well
as Duralast and others.

OH NO ... not another battery thread!

Interstate is among the best ... many of their batteries have other names
pasted on them.  I think the Interstate website tells what some of these
other names are.  One I'm pretty sure of is DuraLast at AutoZone.  WalMArt
and/or Sam's Club may also have Interstate with another label on it.

Check/confirm that your alternator belt has correct tension ... slipping
belt can give the appearance of a failing battery.
