My Nissan micra's battery lasted for 2 years and 10 months with 40000 on the odo. It came with exide. Now I have changed to amron flo. Let's see how long does this go.

But one question, I see an increase in the mileage after the battery change. Does battery somehow impact mileage?

Default Ford Ecosport T (o) battery died in 2 years

Hi All,

My ford ecosport T(o) is exactly 2 years old as of today, car didn't start today, roadside assistance came and saying battery is dead. Car has clocked 20000 km. Will the OEM battery only last for 2 years? I have extended warranty on the car. IS the battery covered in this?

Thanks
Srini

What happened, forcing me to change the battery is a funny story.

OEM Exide 55 Ah battery on my car died suddenly last month (51k and just above 4 years) without any showing any symptoms. Got it replaced with another Exide battery for 5,500 after a discount of 1,500 for old one.

Modern-day batteries last longer, have more 'cold crank capacity' etc., but when their life is over, they give up the ghost suddenly, mostly without warning. I remember, when dear friend and Guru Uday Bhan Singh first pointed it out to me, I wasn't fully convinced. I had seen the old black hard-rubber shell batteries give plenty of signs before dying, and one could shop around and choose before changing. But that is not the case anymore. In my last Gypsy 1000cc I found the battery dying one evening, and had to push-start the next morning, and rush to the battery shop before everything else. keeping the engine on at even long stops !
Very inconvenient, and downright dangerous, under certain circumstances !

I changed OEM battery on my i10 last month. It was an Amaron 40B20L. It lasted a good 4 years but with minimal usage of 30K kms. Battery test was not all that bad, still went by the service center advice. Did not want to take a risk as I had already jump started once. Power windows were slow as well (not sure whether reason was a low battery).

Default Re: OEM car battery life - How long did your OE battery last?

My OE battery is still in use after 5 years of completion of using the car and the ODO is around 48k mark. The previous owner drive only 8-9k in the first 3 years while I took the ODO from 9 to 48 in a matter of 2 years!

I am facing this terrible problem where the car does not start in the first go. I have to crank at least twice to get the car started. No problems once it starts. This, I am reporting after the servicing has been done and the adviser gave an OK to the battery! I guess it is time to change for sure as reading through the thread I see most people have had the change around 50k mark. I am using a Fiat Punto 1.2 Active.

Any suggestions, online experiences or so on battery?

It is still the same Amaron OEM battery that is just 3 months short of 7 yrs Still starts with the first crank but the crank seems just a bit longer, is it time to replace the battery ? Posted the details with the last 2 battery test reports - here (Signs that battery needs a replacement).

The OEM battery on my Alto lasted for 4.5 years. Did not conk out, but was changed because one cell had become weak.

Default OEM car battery life - How long did your OE battery last?

The OBD in my Figo shows the battery charging of 13.6-13.8 whilst running. Earlier it was 14.0 but off late it has reduced. On cranking, the voltage touches 11.2 but does not go below that.

Is this a cause of concern?

Has the battery become weak or is the alternator not charging properly?

Please advice.
