Bosch or Varta are generally the best out there

A Bosch S5008 or a Varta E44 battery would be my choice if your Caddy does not have stop/start function. Take a look at battery megastore..

What year is your vehicle? I think around 2017 there is a recall on the Moll batteries used on transporter and caddy..

Ah ok, I have just gone through some battery woes myself but thankfully battery was defective and under recall.

Depending on what year, poor quality batteries were installed at the factory.

I know because i am now on my third, which is now the proper uprated unit.
