Someone has to be the first one to replace it. I agree that, due to the battery'* location, it shouldn't fail too quickly. On the other hand, it'* a 2000. The battery is already over 4 years old.
On my dad'* farm we have had some good batteries that have lasted in our tractor trailers for over 6 years and we have had some bad ones that only lasted 2 years. It'* just like any other part in a car, they all can go bad at anytime for no apparent reason.
