Default Battery

For those with older PT's...how long did your original battery last? Mine is 4 yrs. old and I'm wondering if I need to be thinking about replacing it? Thanks

Mine will be 5 years old in July and the battery is still going strong. I'll probably spring for a new one in September.

At 3.5 years it gave me signs of not being ready for winter, so I replaced it last November when Sear ran a sale on Die-Hards.

But thats just being cautious. It turned out to be a mild winter, I might have got away with a few more months.

As for your battery, a lot depends on how you use it, weather, etc. If it is still reliable, go right on using it.

You just have to ask yourself one question:
"Do I feel Lucky"?

And keep some jumper cables handy.

My early edition 01 has the original battery still going strong. 100,000 miles on the car with no major problems.

I have a 2001 Ltd with 43K miles and the original battery. There were a few weak starts this past winter but I made it through with no problems. I may go ahead and replace it this summer to avoid any unpleasant interruptions.
