How Long Do Car Batteries Last?

Under ideal circumstances, car batteries can last between 4 to 5 years. However, there are numerous factors that can decrease the lifespan of your battery. Some of these include:

  • Time: Give it enough time, and you’ll have a dead car battery. Car batteries are only made to handle so many charge cycles, which means they will reach their limit at some point.
  • Extreme Temperatures: Whether your travels leave your battery exposed to extreme heat or cold, you’ll find both can damage your battery. High heat can cause battery fluids to evaporate while cold temperatures can drain your battery and prevent it from holding a charge.
  • Jump-Starts: You can end up with a dead car battery by leaving your lights on, your car sitting, and more. If this happens on occasion, and you’re required to jump-start your vehicle, this can decrease your battery’s life.

Signs You Need a Car Battery Replacement

How do you know when it’s time for a car battery replacement? Avoid ending up with a dead car battery by having your battery checked if you notice the following warning signs:

  • The headlights dim when the car is idling and brighten when you rev your engine
  • There are visible signs of corrosion on the battery terminals and cables
  • Power windows and other functions are noticeably slower when the engine is idling
  • A need for frequent jump-starts
  • Unusual fluctuations in power
  • The engine is taking longer to start when you turn the key/push the button

How to Maintain Your Mercedes-Benz Car Battery

To avoid frequent car battery replacements, regular maintenance and care are key. A few ways you can extend the life of your Mercedes-Benz car battery include:

  • Make sure it’s checked at routine maintenance appointments
  • Take care to turn off lights and unplug accessories before exiting your vehicle
  • If you are somewhere with cold temperatures, make sure to start your vehicle periodically to keep the charge
  • Don’t let your vehicle sit for extended periods of times without starting your vehicle

Car Battery Costs

Car battery costs can vary depending on the type of vehicle you own. Hybrid vehicles, for example, require special batteries that can run in the thousands, but the price is normally offset by lower gas consumption. While premium batteries designed for luxury cars can cost more than batteries for your standard vehicle, parts specials are available to help you secure a great price on your Mercedes-Benz car battery.
