Replacement battery for Hyundai Sante Fe (2003)

The stock (OEM) battery is type MF 68 AH (600 CCA), which isn't readily available in the USA, and most battery companies don't list a replacement battery. The notable exception is Interstate, which
specifies type 24T.
After considerable research, I settled on the EverStart MAXX-24FN, sold exclusively by WalMart for $62.28 with free installation. Specifications: 700 CCA, 875 cranking amps at 32 degrees F. Warranty: 3 years free replacement; 9 years prorated.
EverStart gets top ratings. It's distributed by Johnson Controls, which also makes several other top brands.
The EverStart battery fit perfectly with just a bit of trimming of the stock battery heat shield cover with scissors.
Significant upgrade from the stock battery. Highly recommended.

Sounds like a good battery, John. It's got similar specs to the Hyundai branded Interstate replacement, a warranty that's more than twice as long, and about 2/3 the price tag. Good find.
