How long do car batteries last here? Any brand better than another? I know it is not fair to comapre USA to PH but my car is 3 years and 1 month old and I am looking at replacing the battery. Wow Maybe it is just the type from the dealer but I am looking for some extra input. I am accustom to biying 5 year batteries and they last 7+. At this rate I will be replacing batteries more than tires (but that is another thread).
