The 4runner it was a 98, and bought it in 2000, got a new battery in 09.

My G5 is a 07 and still has the original battery.

The 2001 Echo I had I had to replace the original battery in 2014. Or I think it was.

Not alot of KM's but alot of quick trips.

And on the other end of the scale, while on a trip I bought a '24 pack' of 312 hearing aid batteries in San Juan Puerto Rico.

The expiry date (January 17) was on the containers INSIDE the outer box. Of the 24, only 5 actually worked at all, and those only for a day or so each. I guess hot "salty" air messed with them.

Anyway, I flew home in a "cone of silence".

I bought my 2002 Toyota Celica in 2001 and had my first battery replacement in 2015. My 2008 Toyota Yaris is still running smoothly with the factory battery. I anticipate it'll last another 5 or 6 years.

Those OEM toyota batteries from the early 2000,s seem to hold up well. Lucky to get 4 yrs from replacements.

Dont knock it....has its advantages :) 40% loss both ears. I deliberately refuse to wear a hearing aid. Nothing to do with vanity, but I do enjoy ignoring 75% of useless babble folks are spewing at me :) :)

I enjoy my as wife calls it "selective" hearing. I blame it from shooting too much.

The problem/reason with selective hearing, is that women's voices are in the pitch ranges we not only want to ignore, but that nature (hearing damage from shooting) allows us to have quite honestly.

2000 Mustang - battery got "weak" in 2013. Would still start it on "warm" winter days, but not when it was -15 or colder, had to retire it. Car had about 200,000 kMs at the time.

I had a 2000 Corolla that I had to give up last December. I bought it in October 1999 and the original battery lasted until 2012 or 2013, when it could no longer start the car when it was below minus 20 Celsius. It served the car for over 300 000 km. The car had 413 000 km on it when I finally let it go, and that was when the exhaust pipe went and I dared not pay for repairs anymore as it hadn't owed me a thing for years. That was a reliable car.

I have had my Transit Connect for three years and the battery is starting to crap out. Now I get to engage in the warranty battle with the dealership.
