How Long Does a Car Battery Last?

A good vehicle battery can last anywhere between 3-5 years, depending on your driving habits, but there is no fixed amount of time as to when you should get your car battery replaced. You can easily look on the battery itself to find a manufacturer date, so you’ll know when it was made, and roughly how much time you have and when to really pay attention to it and any dips in performance. While having a battery in poor health can still run your vehicle fine, it can come with many challenges, such as being harder to start in winter, between long periods not driving, and its ability to recharge.

  • If you’ve had your battery for the last 3 – 5 years.
  • If your battery has extended past its set warranty period.
  • If your vehicle takes longer to start than usual.
