So, how often should you replace your car battery? Experts generally agree that the average battery lasts around 4 to 5 years. Your owner’s manual should give you more specific numbers, or you can reach out to our service center technicians for details. We’ve got more information—including when to replace your car battery and how to make them last as long as possible—in the guide below.

When to Replace Your Car Battery

Although conventional wisdom dictates that your battery will last around 4 to 5 years, the life of a car battery depends on a wide variety of factors—including climate, location, and your driving habits around Walpole. Keep an eye out for the following warning signs that it’s time to replace your battery:

  • Slow cranking or sluggish start
  • Low fluid levels in the battery
  • Fluid leaking from the battery
  • A swelling or bloated battery case
  • The “Check Battery” light comes on

  • Make sure the battery is always tightly fastened in its compartment.
  • When the engine is off, avoid using the headlights or interior lights.
  • Remove any corrosion that builds up on the outside of the battery.
