Battery life depends upon a lot of variables but 5+ years of use is not unusual. If it still works well why replace it? When the engine starts to crank over a bit more slowly than usual when cold it's a sign that the battery is getting weaker and won't last too much longer (assuming your starter is good). Otherwise I'd ignore the "bad" reading Autozone gave you and just use it until the car gets to be hard to start..
