We will be helping too, getting sump pumps for a wet basement :(
Bummer. Is It just because of the unusual amount of recent rain or is it clearly a long standing problem? I thought the guy you bought from would have been the kind of guy who would have taken care of something like that.
I've bought batteries from AAA. No installation charge with the membership. Probably better to have a good battery if you don't use the car much.
I think it’s a little of both.
