Here's my experience: I had a "new" ACDelco battery installed 07/31/2009 which has gone bad as of 07/25/2012. Knowing from the markings on it that the battery had a 6-year warranty, I went back to get it taken care of. Come to find out, it had only a 30 month full-replacement warranty, which was not well documented when I purchased it, and on top of that, even that warranty is dated from the DATE OF MANUFACTURE, not the date of installation. The one I got was already 15 months old - mfg 03/2008 - half of its warranty life - when it was installed in my truck. Now, perhaps Pirate Auto Care is hamstrung by the manufacturer's warranty terms, but I still think they should know better about putting in a battery that is already half gone on its warranty as a "new" battery. The guy at the desk was not very friendly about the situation, either. Not overly rude, but not very concerned either. I got the feeling he had run into this problem before.
Save yourself the trouble - if you need a battery, go to Sears for it to start with. I ended up spending less at Sears for a brand new battery than taking what the little bit of prorated warranty I would have gotten on that ACDelco would have gotten me. And, Sears?? warranties start from the date it is INSTALLED, not the date it is manufactured.

I took my vehicle to Pirate and it was done fast. They were friendly and did not try to get us to do repairs for things we did not need.

Pirate Auto Center is conveniently located right next to the university. I was able to drop off my car for repairs and still walk back to the university to do errands. Great prices and very accomodating with students.
