Change it before it explodes.
Umm, definitely.

FWIW, my ranger(mazda) battery dies every couple years, even when I buy the "long lasting" ones. I've given up on charging them unless they've been sitting for a while or have had the lights left on, etc. You usually spend a lot of time hassling with it and end up with a new battery anyway.

Unless you add water periodically they are not going to last more than a few years. I usually buy a Die Hard or and Autozone battery because they last pretty long and are made by the same company.
