Time for new battery?

With the colder weather moving in I've been noticing the stang is struggling to start. Today I went to start it up after not using it for about a day n a half and the battery was drained almost dead and didn't start. I do have an aftermarket security installed and the battery is stock about 4 years old. Should I go buy a new battery to be safe for the winter? I've had the battery checked at autozone and they reported no bad cells and alternator was good. Any suggestions?

Same happened to me last year. At the time I had a stock battery on my 2005 Mustang V6. Lucky for me it quit on a day off and I didn't have to go to work. A new battery from Canadian Tire and I was good to go again.

For piece of mind I would swap in a new battery. I'd hate to be stranded in a Canadian winter with no source of heat.
