My battery was replaced last time over 6 years ago and cranking started
to take longer now, so I want to replace it ASAP. The current battery is
an Interstate MT-24F model which, according to the Interstate website,
provides 600 Cold Cranking Amps (CCA.) I also looked into my Owners
Manual and there the battery spec says: 55 AH / 5 HR. Nothing about CCA.
So I wonder how I could reconcile such different specs and get the right
battery capacity matching the alternator's charging capacity. Is Honda
just trying to force us to buy even such staple items, like batteries
from them, even though Honda itself probably also buys them from
companies, such as Interstate and puts its own label on them?
Which replacement battery brand you guys favor for your cars? Mine is a
'94 Accord LX.
