I bought my Ram in June 2011, brand new. It has now been almost 7 years and the battery seems as strong as ever. Have they improved batteries that much? I am concerned about being stranded in the wilds of North Ga. with no juice, but don’t want to waste money on something that I don’t need.
Get a new battery now
7 years is about the longest I’ve seen batteries last
You’re on borrowed time
You want to do it now, when you have choices, versus the truck doesn’t start in a bad and/or remote area
Costco has good battery prices, if you’re a member
My daughters 20010 Corolla still has the original battery as does my 2012 Camry which tested like new a few months ago. I have had batteries last 10 year.
Having said all that, you answered your own question. You are worried about getting stranded in the wilds of North Carolina. Get a new battery.
I can see it know . Out in the wilds , battery fails , no cell phone service , hungry bears .
