How old is your battery? If it is more than 3 years, it may just be
tired. Even if you have a 5 year battery, they are not really designed
to last five years. Battery manufacturers are take a calculated bet
that if you are replacing a battery, your vehicle is probably 3 years
old and you will probably be trading it or selling it in the next 2-3
years. Just people like us that keep cars for decades are the ones they
lose money on.
As always this is JMO.
