Have had ongoing battey/starting issues
since the begining. Thought the original
battery was the problem, so replaced it.
Through the next 4 yrs. Random dead battery/starting issues? Anyone else
Have similar problems?

I have experienced similar issues and then I started buying higher quality, more expensive batteries and would use a trickle charger if the vehicle was going to sit for more than a few months. That fixed it for me.

If your voltage regulator is bad, it can boil the battery to death quite quickly if it is over-charging and if it is not charging, that will also be very hard on a battery, so that is one thing that can be checked.

On my 2007 610 I upgraded the battery to an Odyssey the second year. It is still going strong with no problems after 12 years.
