Our little slice of Arizona is considered a severe service area for a lot of automotive parts, not the least of which is your car’s battery.

Listen to ACDelco’s Kurt Pursche explain the difference between RC and CCA and give you advice on which one is the more important item to focus on when you are deciding on your next car or truck battery.
