Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 Volkswagen Quantum. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Quantum) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volkswagen Quantum won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1986 Volkswagen Quantum engine.

  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Volkswagen? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should.
