How Long Do Car Batteries Last?

Replacing a Car Battery
The battery is one of your car’s most underappreciated components. It supplies your starter motor and the ignition system, and it acts as a secondary power source when the alternator can’t provide enough power. Unfortunately, no battery will last forever.

When it comes to how long do car batteries last, the reason will vary. Lone Star Toyota of Lewisville has a guide to how long do car batteries usually last and what factors impact the life of your battery. Read on to learn more, then contact our service department with any questions or to schedule an appointment.


How Long Car Batteries Usually Last

It’s a hard question to answer since battery life can be affected by everything from how much you use the car to how much temperatures in your part of the world tend to fluctuate. In general, 5 to 7 years is a good estimate given normal conditions, including the right:

  • Temperature and Humidity
  • Full Charge Cycles
  • Power Loading

What Factors Impact the Life of Your Battery?

When you’re asking, ‘how long should a car battery last?’, you really need to provide part of the answer yourself. The car battery life depends on plenty of factors, so you can expect your battery life to be a little shorter if any of the factors listed below apply:

  • Cold Weather: Most batteries come with climate specifications. So if your car is left unattended in the cold, your battery is going to work harder and wear out faster.
  • Overuse: It should go without saying that asking too much of your battery will shorten its life. If you’re always blasting the AC and stereo or need to use the lights a lot, battery life will suffer.
  • Wear and Tear: Any irregularity in the recharging and discharging process can decrease your battery’s lifespan.
  • Poor MaintenanceRegular professional servicing checks everything is clean and in good order. Neglecting your battery isn’t going to do it any good.
