Hello all:

I was surprised that a walmart and costco I visited did not have a battery in stock for my 06GLS.

According to the catalog in costco, there is no kirkland battery for the 06 GLS. And the walmart I visited just seemed to have many items in low stock, or never stocked. Other walmarts for me might be better, but are long drives.

Even sears.com says that they have no battery for the 06 GLS.

Please advise!

your boy,

Hyundai Dude

Maybe if you tell them your car is silver, instead of tidalwave?

Thanks a lot. I hope to see the picture of your battery.

In 2006 I paid 1000 dollars less than my friend paid for a 2011 nissan versa. I actually like the versa after driving in it, but the XD is, so fly.

Thanks again.

24F fits nicely in that traty and offers more cranking power and reserve capacity than the battery that is recommended for hte Elantra.

Thank you everyone for posting those pics. I was thinking of getting the Optima Red Top 24F. I guess that's enough information and 24F is the "group size?"

Well, if anyone wants to suggest a different battery feel free, or chime in if I don't have enough information to buy the Red Top. All I know is 24F.

Thanks for always allowing this young man with a graduate degree in music to express himself in style.

The XD2 be mad fly and you be racing while boomin down the freeway with mad haters following you and making your day harder, but you just wave and say, bye hater.

thank you,
HyundaiDude

I had a neighborhood mechanic install the battery and change the driver headlight. Time had been tight and perhaps after going to Walmart, Costco and a crappy Strauss; I went local.

Price was great, and the battery looks good under the hood.

Costco batteries are suppose to be great. I believe they have a 5 year no questions asked replacement. I believe the sizes that fit the elantra are 24, 34 and 35. I gotta look to see what the exact sizes are.
