    Depends on usage and environment.
    Mine hits three years in May. I will replace it then regardless of its ability to start the car. Factory batteries have a three year safe lifespan.

    Breakdowns due to battery failure, to me, fall into the avoidable with proper maintenance category and therefore unacceptable in my book.

    What type of maintenance? (Serious question) I thought all (most anyway) batteries these days were maintenance-free.

    I usually hope to get ~5 years from a battery. I had to replace the factory battery on my 2012 Odyssey in less than 4 years though.

    That all depends. The OEM battery on my 2013 CRV lasted 4 years and I replaced it with a EverStart Maxx from Walmart. The OEM battery on my Civic is 4 years and 3 months old and still working just fine.

    You can check the water level in the battery and add distilled water if it's low. That's what I did to the OEM battery in the CRV which prolonged its life.

    Heat shortens battery life. In areas with sizzling hot summers, you may only get 3 years out of your battery. In northern areas you could get 6 to 8 years. I live in Vancouver, BC and typically get 8 years.

    Unless there has been something wrong with the battery right away my batteries have usually lasted 8-9 years without issues (Nordic climate).

    Just replaced my Toyota original battery after 9 years of use. Would have been okay for summer use but didn't have the cold cranking power anymore. In fact, I have the old battery in my garage, keep it charged in case I need some backup.

    My previous CR-V (3rd gen) battery was still original when I sold it ten years in.

    There isn't a "best" specifically for a Honda. All battery brands come in a list of sizes as need for all vehicles. Beyond that remember you get what you pay for.
