At another site I'm on, the WalMart batteries (made by one of the the largest battery manufacturers, Johnson Controls) are considered the batteries to buy mostly. Have Walmart Energizer batteries in my two vehicles and they are great so far.
Might want to compare the warranties, road side assistance available with the battery. One thing about WalMart is if you have a problem, there are lots of stores around compared to some other distributors. They don't give much hassle either.
Consumer Reports - take what they say with a grain of salt. Do your own comparisons / evaluations. Their recommendations may not be specific to your overall needs.
The Autocraft battery appears to be made by Johnson Controls as well per the discussion on this BITOG Thread: http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums...Number=1063369
