That market changes so often that it's very hard to say. Our cars 
don't tend to be hard on batteries, so most batteries tend to last a 
long time. Our batteries are also not in the engine compartment, 
where they are in most cars, so they don't suffer from the heat of 
the engine.

The most important thing to keep in mind when you buy a battery is 
that you need to MAKE SURE you get a Group 42 battery. Don't just 
grab something that looks about right.
