How often does my car battery need to be changed?
As time goes on, the battery in your vehicle deteriorates. The normal time to install a replacement battery is after three years. Once this time has passed, you should monitor how your battery is acting. Once four or five years have passed, most batteries will be almost completely unreliable. Hybrid batteries are a little different and can last from eight to ten years.
How can I extend the life of my battery?
Some ways you can extend the life of the battery on your vehicle include controlling the amount of corrosion on it, keeping your battery tightly fastened and limited short rides. Pay attention as to when your lights are on and always shut them off, so you don’t kill your battery faster. Caring for your entire vehicle can keep your battery lasting longer because other parts of the vehicle won’t wear it down.
