I just had this battery installed a couple of weeks ago, but it fit my 2006 Jetta TDI perfectly. I thought I could have installed this myself pretty fast but the guy at the store offered and had this installed within ten minutes with the added advantage of plugging in a backup-battery into the OBD port to avoid my losing my radio settings and such. It's obviously too soon to tell about longevity or losing a charge but for whatever it's worth, so far it turns the engine as good as any new battery I've ever had, and this car is a diesel which with it's high compression takes a bit more juice to turn. The 3-year warranty is on par with other brands I checked. I went with the AGM-type battery to see how it fares here in Florida since even with a garage-kept car batteries rarely last more than four years. Extreme cold weakens a battery, but heat KILLS them. Comparing the regular price this was the same as the big name AGM batteries at department stores, and even as the dealer-sold OEM (which I believe is not AGM)... but lo and behold, Advance sent me a very generous coupon for paying online (with in-store pickup) and this made the deal absolutely unbeatable. Plus, the battery was already picked out when I arrived and even with them installing it I was outta there in 15 minutes tops. Simply a fantastic experience all-around. Now the battery just needs to make it past 4 years and it'll be gravy.

I purchased this battery and wrote my initial review here on 7/21/14 a couple days after installation. This battery was installed in a 2007 Lexus SC430. After about 2.5 years it can no longer hold a charge overnight. This is about half the time my many other batteries have lasted in various vehicles. This car demands more from a battery than my other vehicles but this is a lot more battery and 2.5 years is disappointing especially given the premium cost. Now I go back to Advance Auto, receipt in hand, and see how well they honor their warranty.

  • Q:

    Does this battery needs to be vented? There is plastic enclosure for battery in battery compartment and battery enclosed from all four sides? can I install AGM battery into this enclosure?
    Asked on 8/11/2015 by Mike from United States

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Happy to help with your question Mike! This battery appears to fit BMW's that said I did see a note in regards to BMW's that the battery is vented to the outside of the vehicle. In addition to that if the battery is in the trunk and it is highly recommended to not install it yourself and let it be replaced at an authorized BMW dealership/shop.

  • Q:

    I have an aftermarket stereo in my wives car. I purchased an AGM from Advanced for the trunk of the car. I need to replace the front battery but am confused as to what I can mix with the AGM so as to not cause any charging issues. The rate of charge? This is a tough car to put a battery in already because it is a 2011 Honda Civic dx. The battery is so small and you cannot alter the space. What is your advise??
    Asked on 7/28/2015 by Gary from Flowery Branch, GA

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Great question Gary, I will be happy to give you a few suggestions. A second battery becomes almost necessary if you play your music a lot with the engine turned off. Some people use isolators between their batteries, so that the one used to start the car won't get drained by the amp's pull. And it's a good idea to only hook up two batteries of equal strength and age. The stress of two different strength batteries constantly cycling charge between themselves to equalize the voltage leads to a shortened life for both batteries. Since you have purchased an AGM battery for the back, I would recommend the AGM for the front. The Optima Yellow Top (Part No D51R) is the strongest AGM we have for the front of your car and would be my suggestion.

      I'd recommend a trickle charger (Battery tender, is one) for AGM. I have used AGM for years in aircraft. High current chargers will damage it.

  • Q:

    What is the manufacturers recommended recharge time for this battery? The Autocraft H6-AGM.
    Asked on 8/21/2013 by Terry from TX

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      With reference to your inquiry on the AutoCraft Gold AGM Battery, Group Size H6, 760 CCA - Part No. H6-AGM the charging time may vary depending on the charger and the method of charging. If you are charging in a cyclic mode where the battery is repeatedly discharged then charged a higher charging voltage is used but should only be done from an alternator or a 2 or 3 stage automatic charger. Make sure that you leave your AGM battery on charge indefinitely since it will overcharge and destroy the battery. The voltage is about 2.4-2.5 volts/ cell, or up to 14.7 volts. However you will get longer service life if you use 14.1 – 14.2 volts. If you are charging in a Float/Standby mode battery is continuously on charge and consequently the recommended voltages are slightly lower than cyclic charging so as not to damage the battery. Float voltage for these batteries are about 2.25-2.3 volts/cell or 13.2-13.7 volts.
