How long do car batteries last? In general, a car battery is good for about three to four years. It can last longer than this, but it’s important to care for it once it reaches its “old age”! We recommend getting your battery checked every three to six months once it’s past its prime. It’s also important to pay attention to warning signs that your battery may be near the end of its life – things like a slow engine crank and the Check Engine light are two of the most obvious symptoms. If you notice these warning signs, bring your vehicle into Tires Plus immediately – you don’t want to be stranded somewhere with a car that won’t start.
Don’t have time to stop by your nearest Tires Plus for a free car battery test and battery replacement? Don’t worry – we can give you a general prediction from wherever you are! By using information like the year, model, and engine in your car, as well as the region you do most of your driving in, we can predict how long your battery should last. Enter your information in the above battery life tester and we’ll help you figure out just how much life is left in your car battery!
