Default honda accord 2003 car battery?

My battery suddenly when I stopped, filled gas and it wont start; after a jump start i was told that the battery is bad; it was only 3 yrs old and had less then 50K miles. Is this normal or is there a problem with Accords?

Manufacturers often use cheap batteries on new cars, helps the sticker price. ts not a problem with your car, accords are one of the best cars ever. Just get a quality battery and it will be fine.

Heat is the #1 killer of batterys. 4 years and your worried? In Texas If we get more than two years were happy! 2007 cars at dealers now! Keep cool man buy the best battery you can! Interstate Batterys have been good to me.

it could be that your alt died if your battery has filler caps remove them carefully and toss in two aspirin this should do the trick if your batt proceeds to die then it is your alt

Nothing to do with the Accords,,,,or whatever mentioned causes...For sure you battery is not holding power or storing energy...even your charger is good[alternator]. I do suggest before you change the battery. Check the following;a. If you got the older battery remove the cover ,if the solution[liquid] is bubling meaning your alternator is ok. There is an instrument to determine if the battery is holding energy.Anyway 85% the battery is to be replaced.It happen to me a 6mo. old car.

That's about normal for an OEM battery.
