My Santro's Exide lasted 4-5 years. It had power windows, a simple ICE setup (4 speakers+HU). Then I changed it to Tata Green. Working fine. But now, the car is sold!

Mt first Santro's battery lasted 4 years & was still working when I sold the car. The car just had an Alpine HU & two pair of speakers apart from the usual central locking, power windows etc.
Second Santro's battery also lasted 3.5 years & again when I sold the car it was working fine. Both these batteries were Exide.
My OHC's standard Exide was replaced early on due to electrical requirements & the larger Panasonic lasted about 2-odd years after which it gave up. Now have been on another Exide for the last 1.5 years & it seems to be doing fine.

By any chance were these OE batteries Exide ? My personal observation is that it seems as though Exide batteries are built to last .. as long as the warranty is valid. Any day after that is a bonus .. and I have been a loyal Exide user for very very long. No more ..

The OEM Exide on my 2003 March Indica lasted for 39 months and 60000 km. I'm sure it would have lasted longer if I had fixed the faulty regulator issue that surfaced then earlier. The extra load on the battery has been remote locking and a music system.

I'm beginning to think I should change the question to: How long did your EXIDE OE battery last.

My experience with OEM Batteries:
1. Mercedes : 24 months before a replacement was required.
2. OHC Vtec : A little less than 4 years. Switched to Amaron.
3. Jeep : OEM Battery lasted 40 months.
