How often should car batteries be replaced?
Although quality batteries can last for 4-5 years, most batteries can develop performance issues after 3 years of daily use under normal conditions. Therefore, it is recommended by industry experts to get a periodic battery check once your car battery is over 3 years old.
Many factors can lead to premature battery damage, such as:
- Loose or corroded battery connections
- Defective/damaged charging system
- Malfunctioning alternator
- Extremes of cold temperature
- Incorrect installation, etc.
