    metro manila? the engine bay of the innova 2.0 is so spacious hehehhe.
    given her high mileage halos subok na nya lahat ng traffic condition. 5 years - Baguio traffic, 2 years - Manila traffic and the rest - provincial traffic.

    5+ years on motolite excel (green, the original packaging na buong battery green, not just the top part) 1snf.

    it came with the car, i used the car for 5 years bago ko pinalitan ang battery kasi baka bigla na lang di magstart. daily driver (except coding), open parking, at least 3 hour drive (half sa gabi with usual electrical load load na radio, headlight, foglight, etc).

    jumper cables didnt do shyt. even after idling and revving the corolla. contacts were checked multiple times. eventually we had to get the battery guy over and replace the battery on-site. first crank works perfectly. 550cca replacement - 3500php damage.

    this was also my experience with the wigo.
    i couldn't start her, even with jumpers. but the newly installed battery started the engine at the first click.
    maybe next time, i'll disconnect one terminal of the donor battery, from its car.
    why? i dunno.

    our other car, same model, short drives only, less than 6 km distances. the battery warrantied for 12 months, died on its 13th month.

    hindi yata.
    i think it's the state of chronic undercharge, that the battery degenerates from, the fastest. when i go home, it's dark, so my lights are on. short distance na, headlights on pa yung kalahati.
    short distance driving may not fully charge the battery.
