Interstate Battery Performance Warranty

Any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose is limited to the duration of this limited warranty. Some States do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

What Batteries Are Covered
Interstate Batteries® (IB) provides this limited warranty to (1) the original retail purchaser, (2) of the Interstate Batteries branded battery models listed in the Chart below, (3) when purchased from an IB Authorized Dealer or an All Battery Center Store in the 50 States of the United States or the District of Columbia.

IB’s Performance Warranty
IB warrants that your battery is free of defects in material and workmanship for the duration of the warranty periods listed for your battery model in the Chart below. IB’s Performance Warranty has a Free Replacement Period, and some battery models have an additional Discount Period. If your battery fails due to a defect during the Free Replacement Period, you may obtain a free replacement battery. If your battery also has a Discount Period and fails due to a defect during that Discount Period, you may purchase a replacement battery at a discounted price. Your discounted price will be IB’s Suggested Retail Price (SRP) for your replacement battery model at the time you return your original battery, minus a percentage discount as shown on the Chart below. Any replacement battery you obtain under this Performance Warranty must be identical or reasonably equivalent to your original battery.

To find IB’s SRP for your replacement battery model when you return your original battery, ask your dealer or check IB’s website at www.interstatebatteries.com. The SRP in effect on the date you return your original battery will not be the same price you paid for your original battery, and the SRP may be different than the dealer’s actual selling price for your replacement battery. In some cases, dealers may have different pricing structures and voluntarily offer to sell you a replacement battery during the Discount Period for a lower price. You will still need to pay any taxes and legislatively imposed fees on your replacement battery, and you may also need to pay labor and installation charges. Any warranty coverage that remains on your original battery (when you return it for a replacement battery under this Performance Warranty) will carry over to your replacement battery. Your replacement battery will not have any new or separate warranty coverage.

What You Must Do
To obtain a replacement battery, you must present your original battery to an IB Authorized Warranty Dealer or All Battery Center Store that has an appropriate replacement battery in stock. That dealer will have a reasonable time to test your original battery and, if defective, replace it according to the terms of this limited warranty. To find the IB Authorized Warranty Dealer or All Battery Center Store nearest you, and to get the phone number of that dealer or store, visit www.interstatebatteries.com, or call 800-CRANK IT (800.272.6548) for Automotive, Commercial, and Marine/RV batteries or 888.772.3600 for all other Starting, Lighting, and Ignition (SLI) batteries.

Date of Purchase
Your Performance Warranty begins on your date of purchase and extends for the number of months shown on the Chart below. You may establish your date of purchase by presenting the receipt for the purchase of your original battery. Otherwise, your dealer will estimate your date of purchase
