Look at NAPA and Rockauto. I usually replace the original equipment battery after 4 years but my Pats are garage kept so earlier replacement may be necessary in other conditions.

I had a Costco battery go bad while on a trip, and the out of state Costco didn't have the exact replacement, muttering something about a "Californian thing...", so the battery they did give me, was a little too big--I couldn't secure it or place the cover back on, but when home again, I used the old Dremel tool and cut a wider space at the bottom edge of the box, and it fit just fine! That battery was larger capacity than stock, and lasted over 5 years when I traded my '08 for a '16.

Take a look at the battery box the next time you have the battery out, and see what slight modifications you could make to fit a larger footprint battery in there.


And, good luck!

I fit a Group 34 Northstar AGM in mine with a little tray cutting. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GS3VK9C/

This is all I had to cut to get it to fit. Excuse the dirt.

I usually use a standard size battery. Of course there are situations when there is a problem with the start of the engine, but I already know that this happens because of low battery level and I know how to solve this issue. Sometimes the problem is in voltage. I've solved my issue with help of battery maintainer. Also I can recommend you to turn on the lights for 2 sec before starting engine if it's too cold in the street.

I was worried this year about our batteries, both the Benz and Jeep are over 4 years in our ownership and the batteries were just fine. Garage kept and I get the Jeep was a new battery 4 years ago however the Benz is like 6 years old - got it tested and was perfect. I need to remember in fall to check again.

Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky, who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer and burn and scream until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you and he needs money.
