Just wondering how long has your battery lasted... I have an MY99 with 45,000 and my battery pooped on my yesterday. I feel like it shoulda lasted me a little longer... so how long has yours lasted? (if you had to replace it at all?)

gah... i had to buy another battery from autozone too.. i'm hoping that it will last also!!! It didn't feel right to "recharge" the battery and wait for it to die again... :barf:

I'm sure the turbo has nothing to do with it. My car has had a lot of down time recently, and I've had to jump it a few times to start the car.
