4 years in diesel car is a decent life time if you ask me, if the car is under normal city cycle.
Called amaron helpline. Changed to amaron last year. Ford oe battery gave up. This amaron is just a year old.

I have once experienced a battery defect, which surfaced within 4-5 months of purchasing and the Amaron dealer had replaced with a brand new battery without a fuss. The only quirk was that the new battery came with a reduced warranty period to account for the duration I used the battery that got changed (2yrs + 2yrs - 5mths).
Not having much luck. When the service guy took it last week he told me distilled water was low and battery is not holding charge. I serviced with chennai ford few months back. Donít they check for this or is it done only for ford batteries.

Then you definitely have a case, quote the earlier complaint and what was done by the dealer. Ensure this time they agree for a replacement. A 1 year battery even if not used should hold charge once it is bench charged. Hope they had ruled out any other discharge happening via car electrical's and the charging is fine?

Edit i saw this now:

First part itself is sign that they need to replace the defective battery. WRT service most of these batteries are maintenance free, and service center might not bother checking. Even Amaron dealers sometimes brushes off such request and one will have to insist to get the level checked.

My i10 is almost 9 years old though sparingly used, it's under 20,000Kms.
The OE (Exide?) battery lasted almost 6 years whereas the replacement Amaron 35 Ah conked off in under 3 years & due replacement hence the question.

Mine is of similar vintage, but has run over 88k.
The OEM battery (unsure about the brand) lasted about 4.5 yrs, the second one (Amaron) about 3.7 yrs. The current battery is same as the second one.
Guess on an average we should be ready for a new battery every 4 yrs. Also depends on the heat / humidity / cranking frequency.

My Amaron motorcycle battery went dead suddenly a few days ago. The battery was only 1 year 4 months old. It carried a 24 month replacement guarantee and hence took it to the service center on dealer's advice.

They took over the battery with the warranty card for testing and handed me a receipt. Visited them today and they handed me over a new replacement - no questions asked.
Good service.

And just like I believe, I don't mind a one off piece. It is the service quality that matters.

Regards,
Saket.
