Recently the vehicle was being check by MBM due to the car would not engage hybrid mode when stopping at the traffic light the start/stop function doesn’t works like before and the engine keep running. They told me that both of my battery needed to be replaced which is the starter battery (big battery) and the auxiliary battery needed to be changed too. But they wanted to charge for rm3xxx, so since the car is not under warranty the 4 warranty just expired. I have let the third party mechanic for the check the big battery capacity left about 72% and the auxiliary battery left 61%. So any recommendations for battery brand the third party mechanic suggested me Camel VLR5100 AGM but the original used is Varta AGM. Should I stick back to Varta AGM? Or any owner with this kind of model can give some suggestions? smile.gif

either way you're gonna void the warranty if you have it changed outside of MBM. i'd go back to Varta instead of Camel

There’s total 3 battery in the car 1 is starter battery 1 auxiliary battery and the hybrid battery. The hybrid battery cost 50k according to the new price they have update in this years according to MBM. But no worries for the hybrid battery i have extended the hybrid battery warranty for another 4 years.
