Good to know it is a CPO - battery health is then responsibility of VW (which it is anyway, with warranty). You are taking good care of the pack. Definitely agree about mileage, but if you need to drive that much, then driving an EV is the smart way to go as energy costs are so much lower per mile than buying gasoline, paying for oil changes, etc. Thanks for keeping us updated about dealer pack health check.

Wrapping it up:

Picked up my car yesterday with a brand new battery - everything is great again!

Battery installed is part number 5QE-915-590-AT, (https://parts.vw.com/p/Volkswagen__/BAT ... 590AT.html) the original part number for the 2015 battery - so no bigger battery, but it is a $33k USD part (yikes! way more than I paid for my car, LOL)

Now I just need to keep the ol' VLTSWGN going until I can get my 2024 Buzz!

Strangely, the larger capacity pack for my car "only" lists for $22k. VW could have saved themselves some money if they gave your car more range.
