I am currently at 63 000 km/40 000 miles (2012 model/4 years) and the battery is still running strong.

My first Kizashi went 164,370 miles on its original battery. My 2012 Kizashi is over 62K miles in its original battery. I admit I keep the alternator spinning pretty hard......... :mrgreen:

About 3 years and 30,000 miles. 2nd battery lasted 3 years and 70,000 miles. I live in Texas and it gets hot in the summers.

The Exide Extreme is $89 @ Home Depot ... /204852594

My OE battery seems to be fine after the jump start. I must have left something ajar/on.

Usually in the NE batteries last 5 years or so. Except for my Honda OE batteries. 3 years max on my Accords and Pilot.

I'm thinking of replacing my battery. I had it checked at Autozone & O'Reillys in the summer of 2017 and both testers said I needed to replace the battery. I was helping my sister-in-law get a battery for her car (@ Autozone) since the guy brought the tester out for her car and my Kiz was right next to it I had him test mine. The battery was starting my car just fine so I stopped at O'Reillys the next week and I had them test the battery again and that tester also indicated the battery needed replacing. So I went to Home Depot since I had I gift card I could use to for a battery and found that they had some Black & Decker portable battery boost packs/jump starters clearance priced for $11 that I bought instead of a battery. Now 1 1/2 years later I'm still using the OE battery but noticed last night that when I had the bright lights on and slowed to a idle the lights got noticeably dimmer. Now I'm wondering if I'm stretching that 8 year old battery too far. It still starts the car with gusto but < 20 degree weather is coming quick. Am I risking the electrical system with this old battery? Is anybody else still using the OE battery?
