How Long Do Car Batteries Last?

Auto Mechanic Replacing Car Battery

How long do car batteries last? Many automotive experts in Brooklyn and beyond say that the average vehicle battery life is three to four years. While this interval can change depending on your Chevrolet model, a dying car battery shares the same signs regardless. At Advantage Chevrolet, our service team can complete your car battery change to get you back on those Bronx streets in no time. Explore our service offers and read on to answer your question, “How long do car batteries last?” then contact our service with more questions!



Average Vehicle Battery Life 

The average vehicle battery life is typically three to four years. However, some Queens drivers may experience five or six years before needing a car battery change. Schedule your car battery change every three to four years is a great way to prevent any issues further down the road. 

For services like oil changes or brake replacement services, your car battery replacement should be equally as important and a part of your routine vehicle maintenance. During regular service visits of your new or used car, you can have your battery inspected by our expert technicians to ensure there is nothing negatively affecting your average vehicle battery life. 

What Negatively Affects Your Average Vehicle Battery Life? 

Now that you know how long car batteries last, there are a few things you should keep in mind throughout Staten Island that can shorten your vehicle battery life by a little or a lot. Here are two main factors: 

  • Driving Habits: As working from home and more remote opportunities have increased, you might find yourself not driving as much throughout Brooklyn. If you leave your vehicle sitting for a long period of time, it could reduce the strength of your battery. When you do drive, try taking the longer route to build up more charge in your vehicle’s battery. Be sure you shut off the power completely in your Chevrolet when the ignition is off. Double-check that your interior lights are off to avoid draining your battery overnight. 
  • Climate & Location: A hot climate year-round can weaken your vehicle battery more than a cooler climate will.
