I must be a unicorn because my 2015 is still going on the factory battery. 😂 When it's time I'll be getting an Optima as well. Not going to mess around with the cheap stuff.

The modern version of the optima is not what it used to be. First one i had in my Wrangler lasted 6 years and usually a battery around here gets cooked after 3-4. The second and third optimas lasted all of 2 years.

Same issue in my Wrangler, first one was bad. My friend who is a mechanic says a lot of these batteries are faulty even when brand new.
