My Vios is already 2 years 8 months old but the battery still shows no
sign of dying. I thought of changing, worried it may fail and stuck in the
middle of no where. Do share your experience, how long yours lasted.
Thanks!

Before 2 years, you'd better change the batt to a new one, don't wait for
it to fail on ya.

Sh1t happens..

My 1st battery went dead exactly 1 yr old and about 22k kms. 2nd battery
about 15 months, still going strong. It was a free replacement from UMW.
