    You kind of get what you deserve when you buy from Vatozone anyway.

    Used to have good luck with there Duralast batteries 15 yrs ago.
    Stop using them 10 yrs ago due to there lifetime waterpumps failing in 6 months. Like mentioned brake pads that ladt 5k miles if your lucky.
    Referred to as vatozone here also.

    they're about $10 EVERYWHERE online

    my local store said $48! I said I only need ONE lol and the kid said that NO ONE buys parts there anymore

    the Amazon one will be here tomorrow

    It’s not that az makes the product, “valucraft” is their ultra super cheap product line. They rebranded the super cheap one with their “upscale” premium line.

    I mean it would be different if he had uncovered a CRC brand sticker - who probably makes the stuff anyway - but it would at least be a premium product wrapped in a premium product justifying the premium cost charged.
