Bought an Optima today and they have bumped the warranty up from 1 year to 3 year. That may put any dependability issues to rest.

Where are you a medic at?
Good for you but that sucks for me. I just looked at their website and it looks like the warranty changed 2/1/2009. I will have to find my receipt and see when I got mine.

The Sears/Odyssey is about the same price as the Optima but has better specs and a better warranty. I got 4 years out of my yellow top Optima in my conversion van. I replaced it with the Sears/Odyssey. As soon as the weather breaks, I'll be swapping it into the Jeep.
