How Long Do Car Batteries Last?


Car batteries typically last about four to five years. If you live in a climate that goes through extreme weather conditions - whether that be hot or cold - the longevity of your battery engine is quickly depleted.

How Much Does a Car Battery Cost?


The cost of a car battery will depend on what make and model vehicle you have. According to CostHelper, the typical car battery replacement is about $50 to $120. For a premium battery (typically for cold-weather performance or a luxury vehicle), you should expect to pay anywhere between $90 and $200.


How to Tell If My Car Battery is Dead?

There are several signs that indicate when your car battery is deteriorating. The most obvious sign is when the battery icon lights up on the dashboard. Most cars come equipped with a dedicated battery icon, and if it doesn't, then the check engine light will light up. When this light comes on, it is recommended that the driver take the car to a mechanic to check out the issue. Another sign is when your car starts having electrical issues, such as the lights or radio not turning on. This is because not enough electricity is coming from the battery, indicating that the battery is almost dead.
