Hello George Marsh,
It sounds more like the problem is not the battery. I would have someone other then the dealer do the test................. correctly! If you load test a battery that was not fully charged, it will fail for sure! Fully charged battery to start with. Apply 1/2 the CCA capacity load for the test, hold the load for 15 seconds, voltage to be at least 9.6V at the end of the load test @ 80 degrees F.

I want a load type battery tester for Christmas... They're going for about $50 on EBay.

I kind of think the batterys we're buying today are pretty good overall. The sudden battery failures nowadays are due to the modern engines starting so easy. In the old days you pulled the choke, pumped the gas pedal etc. and then cranked for awhile before the engine started. Today,(unless you're talking diesel) the engine starts instantly and you don't realize that your battery is about shot. Change it every 6 years and usually you won't have a problem. Just sayin..EGBinOR
