The battery on my 2012 Camry LE is 9 years old according to the build date on the car and shows no signs of failure. It is not an AGM battery but most websites are recommending an AGM battery for my car.
Do AGM batteries stand up to hot weather better? What is the advantage of an AGM battery, I don’t think it can be longer life. Even if it is longer life, I don’t need it. It is extremely unlikely I will be here 9 years from now and about as likely as winning the grand prize in the powerball lottery that I would still be driving. Since I don’t buy lottery tickets that is unlikely indeed. I consider lottery tickets a tax on the mathematically illiterate.
