I have an 08, I replaced it 2 years ago with an AGM but I doubt I will get as good of a life from any as the first.  I thought about replacing it for a couple of years before I did but it stranded me near the house,  I got lucky.  The bottom seems to fall out of them and you are screwed unless you carry a replacement with you...... :??:

OK, What battery are you using?  I have always favored Yuasa, and I'd pick the YTX14H-BS.  Is there a better choice?  Why?

Yuasa is good.

I replaced my factory battery a few years ago with an Interstate AGM CYTX14H-BS.

I’ve had good experience with Interstate, over the years, in all my vehicles.
