Dead Battery

My 2012 Azera stranded me while at a retreat ranch in the Texas Hill Country 30 miles from the nearest town. After 2-1/2 years the battery would not hold enough charge to start the car, just a lot of clicking and lights flashing! I did get a "jump start" and limped into the nearest Autozone. Replaced the battery and everything seems to be fine. I contacted the Dealer here at home regarding any warranty. They asked how many miles (22,000) and they said Hyundai would pay 25% if I bought the battery there. I told them I was forced to buy one elsewhere and the service rep said that Autozone would have to try and get the 25% from Hyundai. I thought this was ridiculous and wondered what the rest of you may have experienced.

I would have used your roadside assistance...it's free and then you could have taken the car to a Hyundai dealer.
2-1/2 year does seem a little early to go bad but it does happen

Thanks. However, I didn't feel comfortable driving 170 miles on a wounded battery to the nearest Dealer with two senior women in the car on a Sunday! My point is there should be a way for me to collect something by using the receipt of my emergency purchase. Its certainly not Autozone's responsibly to collect 25%. Plus I thought "bumper to bumper" included everything but tires.

The battery warranty is different. First two years are free replacement, third year is prorated, no warranty after 3 years.

I just replaced the original battery today on my 2002 Mazda MPV, only 21,000 miles on the MPV, and the battery lasted for just over 12 years. They don't make em like they used too.

That's incredible. Average shelf life is two years.

I generally replace after five years. Seems the Hyundai OEMS don't last that long.

Over many decades I have had batteries that lasted 5 years and batteries that lasted 1.5 years. I know that different brands and models of batteries can last longer, but even that is not consistent over the years. Heat and a lot of short trips can really shorten a battery's life. What I now do is periodically test the battery's CCA capacity using a Solar BA-7


which sends a signal through the battery to measure conductivity. That way I can change out the battery before it actually fails. The original Hyundai battery in my wife's 2012 Santa Fe began to lose capacity and I changed it at 2.5 years. Using the BA-7 tester, I can also monitor if the battery is being fully charged and if I find it low due to a lot of short trips, I can connect my battery charger and bring it up to full. That helps extend its life.
