If you don't drive your car often enough go for a low priced but equal quality Kirkland Signature (Costco Brand) battery. They run about $55cad for your size. They have more CCA than your OEM battery, and have a built in handle. No fuss for at least four years at a fraction of the price. You're laughing.

Johnson Controls makes the Kirkland.
Johnson Controls also makes Die Hard, Interstate, Optima, etc private labels.
