    I have a 2005 Taco with a 4 year 6 month old battery. Still going like the energizer bunny. I think I can get five years battery life out of it. Anyone have an older battery than mine?

    The Delco that came in my Camaro lasted seven years and I replaced it before it even went dead.
    I was impressed enough that I bought the same battery as a replacement.

    Mine is 5 months old (still going strong), I tend to always replace mine after 4 years so that I don't end up stranded. The climate here really takes it out of your battery, they either start to leak or die during the first freeze.

    5 yrs is about the time to replace the batt 2 B safe. 7 yrs is impressive. I just would be afraid of getting stuck on a Sun in the middle of nowhere.
