Bosch Premium Performance Battery Group, Size 48 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch Premium Battery I have an older Mercedes that originally had a Bosch battery, but it had been replaced with another brand by a previous owner. Going back to the original equipment brand provided better fitment and the piece-of-mind of knowing I don't have to worry about the battery failing. Best of all, Pep Boys had a great price and free installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked out great I got the brand name product for about the same as a generic battery. They cleaned up a nasty old leaking battery splatter and got me back on the road very fast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Courteous, efficient service ,,, Made an appointment for a battery installation with Pep Boys. Found everyone courteous and friendly and they went to their work on time. Can't ask for more than that. I can't comment on the battery yet (too new) but it's a Bosch and I grew up with that name in my early cars and have no reason to doubt them. I would definitely recommend the Encinitas store to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from .Seems to Work Just Fine Being a brand new battery, this one is expected to work as well as any. But the test of a car battery is it's longevity, so I give it a provisional four stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Job well Done. Price on the battery was less than anyone I priced and the install and timeliness was great. They put on there slick little gadget to hold my 12volts while the battery was exchanged and saved me a possible headache as the Crossfire has several things that can go wrong and need to be reset after a loss of voltage. Thx PepBoys

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Battery Seven years ago, I replaced the battery in my 2000 Audi A6 with this battery, well after another seven years, it is time for another new battery. Based on the performance of the last seven years, I chose the go with the Bosch again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery - Mercedes So far so good... Because of Mercedes electrical system having a Great Battery is very important... Having a fully charged battery is integral to Mercedes electrical system (Check Engine Light)... New Battery fixed the problem; emissions passed the first time...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Battery, Great price, and EXCELLENT Service! After searching all over Yucca Valley (WalMart, etc...) and NOT finding Quality, Value, or Service, I went online then drove to Cathedral City Pep Boys where I was treated like a customer should be! The battery I purchased there has an excellent price ( almost 1/2 of what I was quoted locally) and an Excellent Warranty . The $ I saved more than paid for the gas it took to go down there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absoluty fantastic service! With the very cold weather we have been having I had a problem with the new battery and service did all they could to re-charge it, when that did not work they replaced it with no questions asked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! I took my 2005 Volvo in for battery insulation when the clutch hydraulic line burst. The part was difficult to obtain and eventually was shipped from Sweden. The staff kept me informed and did not make any promises they couldn’t keep. In fact the vehicle service was completed earlier than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exact fit for '10 Nissan Altima 2.8 The measurements posted online for this battery must be wrong, as it says it is 1" taller than the OEM. I spent a lot of time trying to find a better fit, but then figured I would just get this battery and *make* it fit. Well - it is same height as original, so there was no problem swapping them out. Put battery charger on terminal clamps to keep memory, radio, etc powered during swap-out. This Bosch has terrific warranty. Time will tell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a battery - and it works this battery is the proper size for the vehicle and was fully charged. - Plug-n-play. Reasonable price, in stock. Because my car has the battery in the trunk ('00 BMW Z3) they wanted to charge me to put it in. That seems a little nuts since it's actually easier to install in the trunk than most cars under the hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Find the battery to be all that is adveristed. The Bosch battery is working wonderfully in my 2012 Buick LaCrosse. I bought the battery because of a long road trip. Even though my original battery was still under warranty, I replaced it in the hope of not having any concerns on the road. So far, the Bosch battery has performed flawlessly. There are a lot of battery choices out there. My research led me to the Bosch battery and I have been very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In-and-Out for Volvo S60 2007 battery replacement The replacement battery was available, and an appointment was scheduled online. The free professional installation was convenient. There was a discount for 15% for online sales for the date, and it helped to reduce the price. Judge for yourself if you need the battery protection service for $9.99. Recommend overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect VWAG OEM Fit Had Interstate Megatron MTP-91 by Johnson Controls for years. Sudden recent spike in price from my local Interstate Battery dealer and a somewhat mediocre (overrated) performance experience forced me to try Bosch (Exide) Premium Performance Group 48 this time. Better 36/84mos free replacement/pro rata (vs Interstate's 30/85mos) and 36mos free jumpstarts with $20 off sealed the deal for me. Time will tell, but have been a happy Bosch customer since I owned my VWAG vehicle for the past 13yrs...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fit. Time will tell about durability. Replaced OEM battery in X3, which is in passenger compartment under cargo area floor. This battery was a bit smaller and has a few less CCAs than factory unit, but I can't tell the difference when cranking the engine. So far, so good. This Bosch battery (I cannot figure out who actually manufactures these) did include all the fittings - and in the correct location - to reattach the exterior venting hose. The plastic terminal covers/insulators from the original battery also fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit Put this in a 2004 Volvo S60 replacing the OEM and it fit perfectly; just like the original one, and the price was lower than the competition by 10-20%
Date published: 2012-12-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Rated by Consumer Reports; price is great I just bought two for my Duramax. Time will tell how well these last, but they are rated very highly by Consumer Reports. The price is great considering the $25 off per $100 spent store-coupon and the $20 mail in rebate! The only thing to note is that these are traditional lead acid batteries and NOT AGM batteries; I had to add breather tubes, and I expect to check the electrolyte levels; ie these are NOT maintenance free.
