Angry Battery Died

don't know if I should have strated a new thread but the battery just went in my car last night, called around this morning and can't find anybody that has a listing for a 00 SSEI but the ones that have a listing don't stock it. now some do have some for a none supercharger model. What is the difference? and will it work? thanks

AutoZone lists 5 batteries for our ride.

The batteries for the SC and NA motor are the same.

sorry I am ontario canada and the canadian tire here has no listing for a sc model but they have one for a non sc model. after calling one more place as far as what the guy can tell me is that there is a difference in about 30cca in the batteries and also the non sc model is a little smaller. I am going to try that one. the non sc model is a group 78 and a sc model is a group 79

I buy all my batteries at Canadian Tire. I assume your battery is under the rear seat. Make sure the battery you buy has hook ups for the vent tubes. Personally, I buy the one with the life time warranty. It will be the last battery you have to buy for your car. There should be no difference between a */C battery and a non-*/C. You can put the one with the higher cranking amps in either.

I never had a problem with a Canadian Tire battery.
