Invensys..... I believe they took over Foxboro (from around your area?). I had to send some process instrumentation back to Foxboro (work related) for repair a few years ago and the repair service informed me that they were now Invensys. I didn't know they were a British Holding Co.Bob Lincoln said:Exide was owned by Invensys then, a British holding company with brutal financial controls and rules, known for severe cost-cutting at the expense of quality and pretty much everything else.
Yes, despite what many believe, heat is the battery killer. I remember reading batteries only last 3 years on average in the SW part of the country.John Wood said:The battery in my new RAV4 (new in July 2009) made it 3-1/2 years, but I suspect the FL heat is tough on any brand of battery.
My experience over the years is that the life varies considerably and is not always manufacturer dependent.
