My battery went out just a few months ago (about 3.5 years),  and was
replaced under warranty.  It seems that three to four years is  the
life expectancy of these batteries.

So I must be doing pretty good to get 5 years/72,000 miles out of my  battery 
and *knock on wood* it's still going strong.  My previous car ('90  Taurus) 
had over 8 years on the original battery before it needed to be  replaced.
