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.
