How long does a car battery last?
Several factors affect the lifespan of a battery such as too hot and/or too cold temperatures, short trips, and if your car is parked for extended periods of time without starting. The biggest effect on your battery life is the environment you live in. If you live in a high-temperature environment, it’s a smart idea to get your car battery tested after ~two years of ownership. In a colder environment, you can wait 4 years to change its performance.
How to know if you need a new car battery
