    i have inquired as to where interstate batteries are made and the only answer I could get out of Johnson Controls was “ask your distributor”.
    If they were truly “made in U.S.A., why is there such a hard time finding out Where In the U.S.A. The manufacturing plant is located? And… Why don’t the labels on the batteries themselves say “made in U.S.A, ? Also, I did ask my distributor and was told he did not know where the manufacturing plants are but was told by Johnson Controls tell your dealers they are made in U.S.A..
    Why the secrecy? I’d be proud to display the “made in U.S.A.” Lable!

    Look at the Interstate label. It reads ‘distributed by interstate battery, dallas texas’ not made in dallas, thats just ehere their corp. offices are. If it’s made in america, it will say so! Interstate is made by johnson controls in mexico. That is why there there is no ‘made in USA’ on their battery. whoever you talked to you lied. I’m in the battery mfg. business and those are just the facts, plain and simple.

      Darrell,

      I am sorry, for your confusion on the matter of where the Interstate Batteries are made. As stated on the above post; the Automobile Battery, Commercial Truck Battery, Automotive Batteries, Small Engine / Lawn Mower Battery is US made.

      After contacting the Interstate Battery customer service reps. I received this message:
      Thank you for contacting Interstate Batteries. With the exception of the power sport batteries (motorcycle, jet skis, ATV’s, etc) the automotive batteries are made in the USA. Please let me know if you need any further information.

      Thank you,
      Consumer Customer Service Specialist
      Interstate Batteries, Inc.

      Brad,
      Which batteries are you looking at; according to Interstate “approximately 98% of the automotive batteries Interstate sells are made in the USA”.

        All the ones sold in the US are made in Mexico and have been since Interstate was bought out by Johnson controls.

          Mark,
          Where did you get this false information?
          Just called Johnson Controls Battery Division, Andy told me that all of the batteries except the OPTIMA® AGM are made in the USA.

    I accidentally registered a satisfaction rating of 6 and it should be a 10. I’ve placed Interstate Batteries in my family vehicles for over 12 years and I’ve come to rely on the reliability of automotive Interstate Batteries. I’d rather have a battery that will do what it’s supposed to do for it’s rated lifetime without failing than own one that’s guaranteed and repeatedly fails. I have friends who buy Wal-Mart batteries because they say they never last but they’re still in warranty. They continually get a new battery BUT they’re continually getting stranded. I don’t want to be stranded somewhere for any reason! I’ve only had one Interstate Battery fail and it was easily replaced. The warranty was honored without hassle. 10 stars!

    My suggestion to Interstate is; Do the same thing Sears did, Have Odyssey Build a line of AGM batteries and sell them for $19.00 less than Sears.
    I feel this is imperative for your future survival now that everyone is talking about AGM superiority over other types.

    Regards,

    Paul van Blom
