How Long Do Batts Last?

Truck and batteries are 1 week shy of 2 years old. Had some crank issues that last few mornings. Temps have only been down to 55-57 in Central Florida. Seems like they are dying a slow death.

How long do the batts normally last on our trucks? I know the heat here has a lot to do with it, I take that in to consideration. I just thought batts lasted more than 2 years.

When I get home, I am going to clean each connection and reattach and see if that makes a difference.

Fluid in both batts are to the top.

Thoughts, suggestions?

I'm at 2 years, 28k right now.

Didn't think the warranty would cover the batts.

I am going by the dealership today for some other issues (radio and A/C), I will ask.

EDIT: On a side note, my wife's car factory battery lasted 4 years down here. I know, I know, apples to oranges. I'm just sayin'.

they will replace them under warranty mark, they are 100% covered if you are within the 3 yr 36K warranty period which it seems that you are. I have an 04, and I still have my original battereis. NO crank issues at all.

I actually got 8 years out of mine. They was the ones that came brand new with the truck... I use duralast golds. They work great for me.
