AA battery guarantee

My starter battery appears to have died on me, despite careful management after previous problems.

It is still within the 3 year guarantee period, so I will give the AA a call. Just hoping for some tips if they should start trying to wriggle out of replacing it. I do appreciate they'd want to test it first.

A couple of things to consider also: I am not presently covered by the AA, and the cost of this original battery was borne by my dealer, as I hadn't had the van for too long at the time.

Thanks in anticipation.

I bit the bullet, and contacted the AA, who were very helpful. After locating my original record, they arranged for a patrolman to visit me at my storage site. Confirming the battery needed replacement, he was reluctant to supply a replacement, basically on the grounds of the low annual mileage. He said the AA expected annual mileage of about 7000 miles a year, but that sounded like it might be off the top of his head.

I had to be a bit insistent, but he eventually agreed to supply a new battery. It's worth noting that this is only guaranteed until the expiry of the original 3 yr guarantee, in this case, October of this year.
