The average car battery lifespan ranges from between 3 and 4 years. However, if you live in a really humid or super hot climate, you can expect to replace your battery more frequently. If you don’t drive very much and leave your vehicle in your garage for extended periods of time, you can also expect more frequent car battery changes.

  • Battery leaking
  • Sluggish ignition
  • Issues with electric vehicle systems like heated seats
  • Dim lights
  • Low fluid levels in the battery
  • “Check Battery” light comes on

Optimizing the Lifespan of Your Battery

Want to cut down on car battery replacement costs? There are a few good habits to internalize that help stave off that next car battery replacement service for a few months or even years! Take a moment to review our tips for slowing down how often you’ll need to replace your car battery:

  • Short trips don’t give your battery enough time to recharge, putting greater stress on it. So next time you’re thinking of driving a block down the street to the neighbours, try walking.
  • Routinely check to ensure the screws on your battery case are properly fastened. If loose, your battery will rattle as you drive and wear down much faster.
  • Avoid using electrical systems in your vehicle when the engine is off.
  • Regularly clean off the corrosion on your battery terminals.
  • When you can, park in the shade to avoid overheating your battery.
  • Don’t leave your vehicle in the garage for long periods of time.
