My Vios is already 2 years 8 months old but the battery still shows no
sign of dying. I thought of changing, worried it may fail and stuck in the
middle of no where. Do share your experience, how long yours lasted.
Thanks!

Before 2 years, you'd better change the batt to a new one, don't wait for
it to fail on ya.
