Editor's Comment: Just to get this straight - if you can get your car running, you can go to the Casa de las Baterias, and they will replace the battery free of charge. They only want to charge you the $16 bucks for a service call. Sorry dude, but that seems fair to me. Also, they have to determine why the battery died. Was the battery at fault, or is your car broke? If the alternator is not properly charging the battery, then you can swap batteries all day long and it won't fix your problem. My opinion, for what it's worth. I use these guys all the time, and there's no better service in Panama. Panama's hot tropical environment is particularly "tough" on batteries and they tend to die sooner that you might expect. You might decide to not give the Casa de Baterias any more of your business, but where else are you going to go?
