Not necessarily , age does not constitute a bad battery, as long as the electrolyte and levels are good,( battery has to have removable caps to check) or use a load test to check condition ,and if it show's ok. then i run it till it's not. you have plenty of warning sighs that your battery is going bad
slow starting, battery needs charging, electrolyte turns black in color. a load test show it's bad.

I've driven 10 year old cars with original factory batteries and they're still running fine. Shouldn't need to be replaced unless it's showing symptoms or you accidentally drained it.
