The average battery life is 4 to 6 years. Many factors affect the life of a battery such as scorching and/or freezing temperatures, many short trips, and if your Toyota is parked for extended periods of time without starting. The biggest effect on battery life is the climate you live in. If you live in a hotter climate, it's a good idea to get your battery tested after two years of ownership. In a colder climate, you can wait four years to test the performance.
