How long (time life) a car battery will last?
A battery's life expectancy is very difficult to predict as there are so many factors involved. Some batteries are of a better design than others (spiral wound absorbed glass mat AGM for example) which gives them a longer life, other factors like vibration, and temperature effect life as well. Probably the most significant factor would be the over-all health of the charging system. Is the voltage regulator working correctly? Is the alternator the correct size for the electrical load? These factors, and others make it difficult to predict battery life. I had the same battery in my diesel tractor for 15 years until it went bad, the next battery I installed lasted only two, the third one is still going strong at 5. Sorry I can't answer your question better than that.
