When it's time to replace the battery in your Volkswagen Passat, be sure to choose a high-quality replacement battery from Batteries Plus. At Batteries Plus, we carry an enormous selection of auto batteries from Duracell, Optima and X2Power, plus additional accessories in our Automotive Center.

If you're experiencing issues with your current battery, bring in your Volkswagen Passat for a free battery test. If you end up buying a new auto battery, we'll even install it for you (Valid at participating locations, on most vehicle makes & models). Has your Passat battery corroded in the past? No problem; upgrade to our Premier Installation. Our experts will apply anti-corrosion spray and terminal protectors to your new battery to help prevent corrosion from forming.

The number of Cold Cranking Amps, or CCA for short, determines how well your battery performs once the temperature drops below zero. Volkswagen assigns a CCA rating to every vehicle they make. The recommended CCA rating for your Passat can be found in your owner's manual. If you live in a particularly cold climate, a battery with a higher CCA rating will make it easier for your battery to start on those cold winter mornings.

The type of battery you select will have an impact on how well it can start your engine and power electronic accessories like power windows, lights and start/stop systems. Flooded batteries are the most affordable type of auto battery. AGM batteries   cost a bit more upfront, but are designed to last longer, recharge faster and stand up better to extreme hot and cold.

X2Power is the best replacement battery available for your Volkswagen Passat and it's only available at Batteries Plus. Our X2Power AGM batteries are manufactured using 99.9% pure lead electrochemistry and much thinner plates. This provides more power to help start your Passat in any environment. X2Power batteries are also engineered to last up to 3X longer than a standard battery.
