Some well-known manufacturers of automotive batteries are DieHard Batteries, Optima and Kirkland Signature, as stated on CarsDirect.com. Car battery price and quality vary depending on brand.
The best car batteries are the ones that have worked and been reliable for many years. DieHard batteries are some of the most highly recommended batteries available. They can be purchased from Sears with a three-year warranty for $150 to $300 as of 2015.
Kirkland Signature batteries work just as well as DieHard or Optima batteries but are about half the price, says CarsDirect. The Kirkland battery is excellent in cold weather due to its high cold crank amps ranking, and the warranty provides a full price refund if the battery fails.
