How frequent do you all normally change your car battery? When do you think it's time to change the battery? Any particular brand and shop?

cbng,

it took me 3 years before i have to change my stock battery. The new one, which is a normal battery (not a dry battery) cost me around RM180. Dry battery will cause RM40-60 more but a shorter life spam. Dry battery is for lazy ppl Laughing

My Accent is 2 years plus but I notice something which is not so smooth when I start the car. Is it an indication that it's time to change the battery?

cbng,
its difficult to troubleshoot based on your description, but a quick visit to a car battery shop will tell you the reason, they have a tool to check the condition of your battery. Only thing i can tell you is especially during rainny season, I find the car very difficult to starts. Laughing
