They used to have a good reputation, until they moved all of their manufacturing into Mexico. Quality Control and Assurance is down the tubes... We can' t keep them in our forklifts at work - however our purchasing department keeps buying them up instead of switching to a quality AGM brand such as Odyssey.
Now it appears that Optima only spends money on advertising in the US/North America instead of offering a quality product. They've certainly have a lot of people fooled.
