Todays cars the batteries just don't last that long......2-3 years at best IMO, back in the day 4,5,even 6 years would be the story.

That is exactly what the AAA tow truck driver said after he jumped my car. He asked me how long I've had the battery. I told him it was the battery that was in the car when I bought it 4 years ago and I have no idea how old it really is. Then he said, "batteries nowadays only last 2-3 years so I'm pretty sure you need a new battery".
