So the battery died on my car last weekend and I ended up getting a replacement from Autozone. I've had the car close to three years so I figure it's sounds about the right time for it to go out. Plus I live in Las Vegas and the heat takes it toll on car batteries out here. For owners that live in extreme heat areas, is three years typical for the OE battery? Also, is there any particular reason I should've gotten a Motorcraft replacement instead of what Autozone has? I'm sure there isn't but I wanted to check .
