Rated 5 out of 5 by spasmonaut Pricey but performs well
AGM batteries are more sophisticated and rugged in their performance, so they come at a premium price. The build quality of this battery seems high, and the perceived value of the after sale service offered by Bosch as a customer of their battery products appears to be attractive. The built-in handle made situating the battery easy and it was a tad under the size of the group 25 that was originally installed in my vehicle when I purchased it new, making installation easy and straightforward. The posts are attached well and ample in size to assure that your terminals make a solid purchase upon attaching/fastening. The manufacture date was within a month of the purchase date, which is always a welcome consideration, along with a solid warranty that gives me confidence in harsh cold (24 degrees as I type this). It's only been about a month since installing but it has performed as well as the original battery - whether it exceeds the original, I cannot say.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Echozilla Supportive Power
Placed into a 2000 Toyota echo with some of today's more popular features for an upgrade. The battery I had was a PB Value grade. Needed more power in the battery to support the upgrades and went with this one. Fantastic Buy on PB sale w/ rebate offer. Note that the OEM terminals will need a slight adjustment to accommodate the post, Unless you are also changing your terminals. It's a bit larger than the original grade Bosch battery so it's a tighter fit. Clean your terminals out to get the full power from the battery. Good luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bnunya Starts strong and runs accessories longer
Even though the original battery in my Outback was only about a year old, it didn't have the oomph for a strong start in the winter. This battery definitely starts stronger because of the higher cranking amps.
