It really depends on how you run your car that decides when a battery needs replaced.

Most garaged daily drivers can run on the same battery forever. Cars that sit for extended periods or are started at extreme temperatures will need replaced sooner. Cars subject to corrosive elements (salty, humid air) will need batteries more often as well.

The only way to definitively know is to have it checked out. Fortunately, most places do this for free.
