I have a Gold Diehard battery, still under warranty, that is dead. The store where I purchased it closed. So I called the next nearest store. Their Auto Center is now closed. I spoke with a Sears representative who spent a great deal of time finding the nearest place to return my dead battery. I discovered that I have to drive over 25 miles to make an exchange. I might add, this battery is 2 years old, with a 36 month full replacement warranty/64 mo. prorated. What good is a warranty if it means I must take time off work, drive over 50 miles round trip to make use of it? Does Sears have any provisions for situations like this? This is causing not only an inconvenience, but more stress than needed during an already stressful time! I would appreciate any help or advice.
