Who knows? Eveything and everybody is different. Some people report problems immediately and some people go 7 years without a problem.How long does the 2017 original equipment battery remain trouble free?
7.5 years and for how many miles?Purchased my 2013 CX-5 in May of 2012 and still has the original battery. Original everything actually. Not even a bad burp in 7.5 years. Original brakes are down to 3mm so will do them before too long. I should probably think about changing out the battery this winter but no problems so far. Parked it for 2.5 weeks in September and it fired right up. Love my CX-5!!
No need for panic if you have a lithium ion battery back up starter in the boot. They hardly cost 50-70 euros, are small and seem to keep their charge for atleast one year. I have one each for our two cars. I recharge them once a year.Who knows? Eveything and everybody is different. Some people report problems immediately and some people go 7 years without a problem.
From my experience I change my battery every 3 years regardless. I've been stranded twice with a dead battery and 2 is 2 times too many.
Plus batteries today don't give you any warning. It could start right up in the morning a be completely dead at lunch time.
