Optima. The company made a good name for itself and then sold out. New owner moved operations to Mexico. That was a few years ago. New optima's come with a 50/50 quality expectation. You might get a good one, you might not. The new AGM batteries are a bit better on quality expectations. About a 95/05 chance of a good one.
Then again we only had about 1500 vehicles in our local fleet before I retired.
