We use our car for mixed runs, had it from new 3.0 tdi 2010

Went to start it yesterday and battery was flat, put my "jump start" on it and it started first time, then the DIS said it would recharge the battery on the next run so I assume all is well with the alternator

Anyone else had to change a battery yet, the car is only 3 1/2 years old and I would have thought it should last longer than that

The car is however "fully specced" so everything is electric

Do not want the wife to be left out stranded

Hi KCSUN, I recognise that userID. Are you the same person who was Boxa.net quite a few years ago now.

Hi Grant
No, never owned a Boxster, Have a 996 GT3 and I am on PCGB as kcsun?

No the battery has never had any "outside" charging
Not had any problems since that long run to charge it up again so I am happy all seems fine, will update you all if it all goes haywire though

Changed my battery (2.0T Auto, 40000kms) on New Year's Eve, 5 days shy of its 3rd anniversary. Cost QR1055 (pricey by local standards, that would be £175) but Q-Auto came out tops with their service - had one in stock, popped the old one out and put a new one in, in an hour.

At under 3 years I did not get much from the battery, but the environment here is harsh.
