To be honest, I was never going to buy the Kirkland flooded battery so I didn't really pay any attention to it. For me, it was a decision between either the Energizer AGM from Costco or an Interstate MTP-24F at a local auto parts store not far from my home, both of which were going to fit just fine. Now you've got me curious what I would have found had I really wanted the Kirkland battery.FYI Costco's battery finder system will not show an Interstate brand battery for the Odyssey because the 24F was not a flush cap but raised. Is this why you went with the AGM?
I agree with you there - time will tell whether the AGM battery is worth the extra expense. I'm hopeful that it will handle the engine-off demands of the power sliding doors and the power front seats better than the factory battery (I'm six inches taller than my wife so the seats are moved quite a bit every time we switch drivers).The Costco guy told me they didn't have a battery for the Odyssey (Ours is 2005) at first then I pointed to about 7 group 24F's they had on the shelf. I'm still undecided on AGM. For the Odyssey I went with the Interstate (flooded) at Costco because it's dirt cheap for a solid battery. But in my Mazda 3 I went with an AGM (Champion) replacement because of a PepBoys $50 black Friday rebate. Only time will tell if the AGM is legit.
