Looking at that warranty extension?

You'll get testimonials in an Internet forum, but that's no indication of reliability - try Consumers' Union as a start.

Likely you'll have problems but should be under ~$1,000/year unless you are unlucky. Few get seems to get away with no repairs but it's not like they have issues every other week.

Mostly we're good, but you gotta ask yourself....

You're approaching the end of a batteries typical service life. However the car will warn you when the battery is low. If you're not receiving the warning or experiencing any problems with it then I wouldn't change it. Once the warning appears you can give it a charge. If it comes back shortly after that then it's time for a new one.
