    wsalam bro..Just stick wid what the manual says not with that the local battery wala's say..The people who designed their cars know them well and the battery wala might be making more money just by saying u need a 65A battery..So my advice stick with whats recommended in the user manual!

    use whatever was installed previously and make sure the terminal orientation is correct, most battery vendors just want to push sell anything they have - so they simply slap a backwards battery whose terminals end up at the front. Which is wrong.

    The number 65 is contained in the model number of battery, it is not actually the AH rating of the battery. Like the hankook ***65** (please check it, i don't exactly remember the complete model number) is 48AH in real and it is also mentioned on the box of the battery, this is somewhat confusing and most shopkeepers sell it saying it is 65A battery.
    A true 65AH battery may not fit on the car battery holding tray.
    As said by Xulfiqar check the Right and left orientation of the battery before buying, it is normally the last letter in the model number of the battery as L or R.

    Does the left and right orientation of the battery effect anything...? @Xulfiqar

    In civic 92~00 (check it for the reborn) when looking from the front the battery positive terminal should be on the right and the negative on the left and both should be away from the bulkhead, if not so the battery wires won't reach the respective terminals and may tangle up.
    e.g., AGS GL65 and GR65, 48AH left and right handed batteries.
