2010 Outback 2.5L CVT Green
Wondering if the people who live in hot climates (Phoenix, Tucson, Las Vegas, Death Valley, etc) can tell me how long their factory installed Subaru battery lasted them. I have a 2010 Outback that is driven almost every day in Tucson, Arizona. It has 26,000 miles on it. The Outback is my wife's car and I do not want her to be stranded with a sudden dead battery (which is frequently how they fail in hot climates...without any real warning). I would rather spend the money for a new battery than to have my wife stranded. So, how long has your factory battery lasted you? Please, only those who life in hot climates.
