This hard to find Group 42 size battery was a perfect fit for my old VW Beetle.
Price was great with my 30% off code!
Only issue: The battery was dated as manufactured 5 months ago. Would have liked a fresher battery but it works great.

Wrong fitment for my car but no options

This battery is not an exact fit for my VW. The notches in the mounting flanges on the bottom are reversed side-to-side (3 on one side, 2 on the other) preventing secure hold...Read complete review

This battery is not an exact fit for my VW. The notches in the mounting flanges on the bottom are reversed side-to-side (3 on one side, 2 on the other) preventing secure hold down with the stock fixture. Rotating it to fit would have put the terminals out of reach of the cables. I had to modify the flange for it to fit. No damage was done to the battery but it would have been a problem for someone without auto mechanic experience.

Comments about AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 42, 495 CCA:

I ordered online to use a coupon code. I was gonna pick it up at my local store. When I got there they had 2 in stock. Both had fate codes of 2013...... It's 9/2016! Both tested bad and the first one they brought out was clear used... Go figure. So I had to cancel that order and I tried from a store in the next town. Same issue. After calling all stores in 50 miles we finally found one with a good date and tested good . It was a lot of headaches for saving$40 . The coupon codes are great but the Ellijay ga store is terrible.

              The battery was ready when I arrived at store. The battery fits and works, but it is not a good fit. It isn't large enough to be secured with the stock clamp. I will need to rig a clamp to secure the battery. Nothing that is unusual when working on a 41 year old car.

                Replaced the same after 6 years in a 71 Super Beetle. Installs under rear seat so not subject to the engine heat which degrades the batteries.
