I bought my car new in July 2009 and it was already done.Did any you guys get the recall battery replacement ever on the srt?
Just my opinion: People that sell batteries recommend that.Many recommend planning to replace the battery at 3-year intervals, as most times the battery gives no signs that it is failing and will simply 'die' without warning. I would not go beyond 4 years at most without replacing.
I'm 57 years old and keep my vehicles a long time. I've lived in PA, upstate NY, Florida, Germany, and now Virginia. I've had cars a long time in each climate.
I've never had one need to be replaced before it was at least 5 years old. Most of mine have lasted around 6 years, some longer. This particular vehicle lasted 6 years and at least 1 month. Instead of replacing batteries before they're due, I bought good jumper cables for each vehicle, have them in each trunk, and taught my wife and daughter how to use them. So when the time comes for one to fail, I get somone to give me a jump, drive it home, and replace it. The jumper cables cost me much less than replacing batteries before they're due, less than these new energy storage packs, and will last forever. If my wife is driving by herself and that car fails, she always has her cell phone and will stay in the store (or wherevver) until I get there. Again, just my personal theory.
Ps. When my wife asked me what I wanted for Christmas years ago I showed her, "These jumper cables."
