4 or 5 years is a pretty typical lifetime for a lead acid car battery. Given it gets cold where you are, I wouldn't recommend going lightweight. The Optima red top is a popular (though pricey) choice. The diehard platinum is an AGM battery as well, so it should perform comparably, too.

A good Die Hard should serve you well for at least 5 to 7 years and not cost you a lot. Clean the connections and then coat the terminals with a sealer after you make snug the connections to the battery. Do not over tighten them.
