    The fact that the acid was all over the boot, the carpet, the wiring and everything kinda indicates that it’s not a factory fitted battery in a proper enclosure. So maybe we can’t know that for sure, but personally I’d be willing to bet at least ten south efrican ront on it.

    Is this kind of corrosion on the engine acceptable on a brand new Mercedes?

    The obvious response to that assertion would be to ask why they didn’t easily clean it off before delivering it to you.

    Hey, if you’ve cooked it, you know all you need to about it’s state. It’s useless as a battery, but that’s obviously of secondary importance to knowing it’s state. No one wants a battery that actually works if you can’t even be sure if it’s 98% or 100% charged.

    Mazda CX-3

    That moose test was of the facelifted CX-3, with the more compliant suspension. I wouldn’t be surprised if the poor moose test and the changes to the suspension are related. The suspension in mine is not what you would call compliant.

    You’re obviously not charging it enough if it’s lasted that long. If you give it a good solid top-up every couple of days I bet you could trash it in a few months.

    What’s the steepest practical slope for a driveway?

    Well, I’ve done a bit of asking around and from what I can work out the 1:5 is doable especially for cars. The driveway is long enough to allow for a gradual entry and exit, and as long as you don’t chicken out on the middle bit, you’ll be fine. Thanks for all the replies and suggestions. In...

    Don’t you call that charger under-powered, it klapped the snot out of his battery.

    Don’t worry - soon both you and the teacher will be wrong :) I also don’t get the seven kids theory. I’ve got three and am down to only paying for the last one and I’m still bleeding money. I don’t wish I never had them at all, but I do look forward to having all that money to spend on me.

    Not to mention the fact the needing to top up too frequently is a sign that it’s being over-charged.

    One of the oddities that doesn’t make sense here is that if the OP is such a genius with battery and battery charger technology, why didn’t he fit a maintenance free battery instead of crawling around in his boot topping up his battery?
