Also, look under the bonnet (hood) of a V8 and tell me where you'd fit the battery in that engine bay...

There's been lots of problems with it. The heat cycles age a battery prematurely. The newer type can't out-gas or spill so can be used safely under the seat in the passenger compartment. The better environment means that these batteries should last a lot longer, offsetting most of their additional expense.

That and the reasons cited by others.

Re: WK2 - New battery type and location

Has any one replaced a battery in their WK2 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


If the battery has been replaced how much did the battery cost


What was the battery brand and number?


Thanks

Re: WK2 - New battery type and location

There are 2 battery sizes. the 2011 came out with an odd size battery very hard to get in AUS, they made a new battery retaining clamp so a more standard battery could be fitted.
My battery was replaced under warranty and came with the new clamp.
