Well I used to love to hate on autozone batteries too, but properly cared for they are perfectly serviceable. I traded one out last spring that was originally installed in 1995. I have another that's going on 8 years. My builds and daily's get AGM batteries these days b/c they are lighter and a little more reliable but I've yet to find a reason to put much money into batteries that are on the charger 99% of the time, and could easily see with others don't want to spend out 2x-3x as much for a "very slightly" improved battery for a daily driver sedan.
Good advice is always certain to be ignored, but that's no reason not to give it.
