Buddy's daughter is a student and she suspects her car battery is going bad. Where is a good place she could go have the battery checked and replaced if needed?

Not NTB. Mine went bad from out of nowhere yesterday morning. I bought that battery from NTB 3 years ago and it had a warranty, albeit prorated. So I caught a ride with the wife to work, then left early, went home and jump started my truck and set out for NTB. It was 5:10PM and they said they close at 6, so I called NTB and let them know I was on my way with a battery that they owed me at least a little something on. The guy told me, "I'm gonna ask you to turn around and come back to see us in the morning. It's too late in the day."

I ended up having to go to 4 different places before I found someone who had one, and that was at Auto Zone on WD Fitch. They offered to install it for me, but I just took it home and installed it myself. They did say that they would test the alternator, battery, starter and everything, but I knew this was a battery issue. I'm not sure what I lost on the prorated warranty at NTB, but consider that the cost of finding out where NOT to go next time. If you're open till 6:00, heaven forbid a customer interrupt your day.

And just in case that was too much of a rant, Auto Zone on WD Fitch would be a good place.

I think you have to be a member for everything but the pharmacy.

Autozone's Duralast batteries are comparable to Interstate and they will install it for her.

I go to Batteries+Bulbs. They will test and install, and aren't normally too busy.

Motorcraft is all I will buy - at the Ford dealer or O'Reilly Auto Parts.

Consider the warranty and locations of stores...Autozone or something like that. The hands are usually skilled enough to install a battery.

Battery went bad on a Sunday afternoon recently. I bought the Interstate battery at NTB several years ago ironically also on a Sunday so I called them but since covid they are no longer open on Sundays. I got a jump and started calling around. Discovered that Firestone in College Station was open. Got there about 4pm and they were pretty busy. An hour later I had a new Interstate battery and was on my way. Saw several students coming through as well. The manager said he has been here for. 20 years. Would certainly go back for a battery change. Can't vouch for any other work.
