Hello all,<p>Where is a good place besides the dealer to get a replacement battery for a 2007 S80? Also, does anyone know if any standard Group sizes fit the S80? Here in Arizona, batteries don't last too long, so I need to find out what options are available besides the factory battery. I prefer Optima batteries, but they don't seem to make one that fits any later model Volvos.

How many AZ summers do you have on your S80's battery? If you will have three summers on it, your battery will be living on borrowed time next year. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>BTW - what is BAP? Thanks!

Re: Replacement Battery (arporro)

Just wondering, does the car give you a low battery voltage alert when its soon dying, or are you just stuck somewhere and needing to get a jump when you find out its dead the hard way???

I backed the car out of the garage to wash the car, and when I went to start it after I was finished, it was dead. It died during the fourth summer (battery was about 3 3/4 years old).
