How often do I replace my car battery?

Most car batteries come with a standard 60-month (five-year) guarantee. Although for many of us, this life expectancy goes far above and beyond the length of time we intend to keep our vehicle, it’s important to bear in mind that you shouldn’t wait for your battery to leave you stranded before you decide to replace it.

If you’re experiencing trouble getting your car started, this could be a sign that your battery is losing power and may need to be replaced soon. By bringing your vehicle to a technician, you can have the voltage in your battery tested to determine if it should be replaced. If your battery reads less than 11 volts, it should be changed.
