Yes, I looked at the CTEK chart before leaving my comment and read about the MXS 5.0, MUS 4.3, and 7002. It is somewhat useful. Still, as someone new to battery charging, differences hard to appreciate between units from a practical perspective e.g. how important is alternator testing as provided on the MUS 4.3 vs higher amps on the other units. Appreciate the insights from experienced users.CTEK now has a model selection guide. Don’t remember seeing it when I was deciding what model to get six months back. MXS is recommended for the Macan. Can adjust for temperature and has a recondition Mode. $86 on Amazon. If I’m not driving for a day I have it plugged in.
Is this 6000 mile restriction spelled out in the manual or anywhere else ?Had my 23 month old 17s with 8500 miles battery replaced today. And it was NOT under warranty do to not driving 6000 miles a year and no trickle charge used.
part (958-611-092-21)/labor. The dealer charge 671.00 with a 20% coupon.
On my to do list today is to buy a trickle charger. Any idea what trickle charger maintainer should I buy.
Read your warranty book under "Your Responsibility for Normal Vehicle Use" This includes 15 miles/day or 6,000/year on a rolling year basis, not a calendar year basis. It even mentions a battery maintainer.Is this 6000 mile restriction spelled out in the manual or anywhere else ?
If I am remembering correctly the CPO book has similar wording.
