In a way, battery capacity loss / replacement is just maintenance.

It is a big post, but then you would not have to change oil, clutch plates, mufflers, cats, timing belts, spark plugs, air filters (except the cabin one); you'd never blow a head gasket, have a radiator leak, gearbox trouble or faulty alternator.
You'd use the brakes less so they'd wear less.

That all might just make up for it.
