I have an Odyssey and donít recommend one.  The main reason is that if you need warranty, there are only a few dealers around Atlanta.  If I had to do it again, Iíd buy an Advance Auto AGM. 

BTW, an old battery guy at a distributor that used to service the shop I worked at YEARS ago told me, the number one cause of battery failure is vibration.  Think about that and the abuse the batter gets, even secured, when your rig is slamming down on rocks (and mall curbs).  Eventually the plates are going to break loose and short out.  The numbers 2 cause of battery failure is dirt on the top.  A layer of dirt gets moist and creates and low level short across the terminals.  At least that is what the old guy said.

The battery buyer for NAPA told me #1 killer of batteries is temperature swings.

My truck battery died on my way home today.
I swung buy & got a $28 blem.
I'm going out on a limb & saying this will be a pretty bad winter.
Remember, it's still fall.

I'm pretty sure that was the factory battery.

Where'd you find a blem battery?

Parasitic draw from the ground maybe. But anyways the alt was good and wires. I did check all the ground wires starting from battery. Going to replace with agm instead of water lead battery. This cold weather I noticed is effecting this issue and I never did like lead base. If this doesnít work itís going to dealership.

Is that the place down in the hole? I think they have a interstate battery sign out.

Yes, I'm pretty sure.
They have a few cars out front for sale.
Sorry to hijack the thread.
