Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1983 Volkswagen Quantum. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Quantum may need a replacement battery sooner.

Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Quantum stranded. Your Volkswagen Quantum could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1983 Volkswagen Quantum running newer, longer.
