Batteries are becoming more and more of a problem for most cars now-a-days. With smaller engine compartments being filled with more equipment, wiring, piping, etc. and with the push to shave off a few pounds to eek out a little better mileage or save a bew dollars, manufacturers are putting smaller, lighter weight batteries in cars today. At the same time, the electrical load on new cars increases every couple of years. Generally, it's a good idea to replace your oem battery with a better battery after only one or two years, especially if you live in an area with very cold weather.
