I'd say you got your money's worth out of that possibly 12 year old battery. Hope I can get close to that from mine. I've had good luck with the everstart maxx batteries in other vehicles. I've got two in my truck right now.
Initially I was thinking of trying to save a few bucks and open the old battery (Varta IIRC) and add some distilled water if needed. I will try to keep it still but for the convenience, we will replace it.
The EverStart battery cost me $137.xx + tax in Canada. The local VW dealer wanted $159.00 for the Enertec battery.
Reading the opinions of many regarding Enertec, I would rather give EverSmart a shot again.
