Original Battery

I got my Fortuner Diesel new in January 2007.
The original battery is still in the vehicle and shows no sign of any deterioration.
What are other users' comments and experience?

My 2010 is on its second battery. I actually buy them directly from Toyota. As they are the cheapest believe it or not. Even my isuzu has one from Toyota. I don’t know how they get them so well prices. Apparently the parts lady at Honeydew says they get them from battery center and they relabeled it for them.

My polo’s one was just replaced 2 days ago. It’s also a 2012 car.
