My C280 OEM battery only lasted 5 years.
Average life although my interstate batteries on other 2
cars have so far outlived it.
I replaced the OEM with Interstate.
Consumer reports, I believe rates the exide
batteries as pretty good.
Do a search.
Certain driving habits seem to influence the battery life.
