    Is it possible for a car battery to hold a charge for less and less time as
    it ages ?

    I think cell phone , alarm , ni-cads , etc batteries do .

    TIA

    19 years? Yikes! I think YOU may OWE the battery company something!
    But in answer to your question, yes. As the plates get sulfated over it
    loses its capacity.

    As a lead acid battery ages, the place get warn away, and also develop
    sulphide on them. A well maintained lead acid battery can last about 3 to 5
    years average, depending on the way it is used, and the type of
    environmental exposure it gets.
