Having problems with your 2001 Subaru Outback ?

My 2001 outback has manual transmission. Original battery had 420 CCA. When I went to get replacement, I was told to use Group35N with 550 CCA. It wouldn't fit. I was also warned that a battery drawing too much would kill my alternator. Where can I get an appropriate battery. Car has under 60K miles.

This problem has been going on for a few months getting progressively worse. At first the stereo would come on buy itself when the car was shut off. To keep from draining the battery too much I would manually shut the radio off. With this done the stereo would light up, but the audio remain off. Now, the stereo is automattically coming back on and switching to the auxilary setting on the stereo.

This car had a new battery and a good alternator - Car would run if jumped off - but if we killed it - it couldn't start. Over night the battery would go dead, after having a new battery. The Car was jumped with a partially dead battery and would run for about 10 mins - then would start to miss like it was running out of gas, but it wasn't. Then it would kill and it would not start.
