Re: Battery Group/Size on our Malibu's
Wanted to report that I have successfully installed the Costco Kirkland battery for my Bu 2008 LT2. I used Fitment code 8 (BCI group size 58). I had to improvised it a little bit: (1) The terminals are on the passenger side instead of the driver side (2) removed both L-shape rubber bracket which were wrapped around the cables (so I could easily twist the cable as the terminals are now closer) (3) For the plastic battery holder, just inserted it back in the gap without the screw: the holder sits very tightly between the battery and the box wall but can not go all the way to the bottom
This kirkland battery exceeds the OEM CCA (610 versus 590), also carries a good warranty 3 year replacement/100 months prorated.... Its price is fairly cheap, under $70..These are the main reasons I go with this battery instead the expensive exact fit version from other brand... Took me around 30 minutes to do the installation...
