I need a yellow top in the worst way!
Any company that up and moves from the USA to escape taxation and escape paying American workers a fair wage is never going to see another cent of my money.
I see no reason for Optima to have moved its production line to Mexico when Americans are starving for jobs.
Why as an American would I ignore my fellow Americans in need in order to buy a battery that might be a few cents cheaper.
I used to swear by my “Yellow Tops”, but no more.
It is not an issue of quality, it is an issue of repsecting my fellow Americans in need.
I have shifted to batteries that say “Made in USA”!
(Yes, I know my LC minted in 1981 was made in Japan, but my Durango, My Trans Am, My Corvette, and several others were all made in USA.)
Is it just me or does this promtion not make any sense? What the hell is a text-to-win code and where do you get it?
Do they last now/have their QC issues been fixed?
Contest makes little sense.
Apparently, currently available optima batteries have a sticker on them with a code that you can scan or text to enter. I suppose this is the part where they get you to go out and actually look at their product (and possible just break down and buy it).
Well my 4 month old Optima Red Top suddenly died with no warning in Death Valley many, many miles away from civilization. I would never trust one of these batteries again.
Optima Batteries clearly is at the top of any automotive related vendor for terrible customer service. They continuously hide behind their vendors and make warranty claims unbearable for the customer. If you couple this with a product who’s quality control has diminished greatly, you are left with an overpriced junk battery that no one will stand behind….
