It will inevitably happen to any car owner; you go outside to turn on your car only to have it fail. While you may think that there is a large underlying problem, it turns out to be simply in need of a car battery replacement. While this is not a major repair, it can be a troublesome one depending on the timing. Understanding when you might need a new car battery (i.e. how many miles does a car battery last) and steps that you can take to extend your car battery is essential.

How Does a Car Battery Charge?

In a clever piece of engineering, a car battery will charge when you are driving. That is why, if your car battery is left on overnight, a jump start will give it enough juice to get your going. The battery will recover the lost energy as it is driving on the road. While this is, of course, is a major inconvenience, the true problem with car batteries will occur when they can no longer hold a charge and therefore need to be replaced.

How Many Miles Does a Car Battery Last?

The two critical components associated with a car battery is how many miles they have on them as well as their overall age. A battery that is older will tend to go sooner, even if it doesn't have a lot of miles. Typically, a car battery will last for about 5 to 6 years and about 30,000 to 50,000 miles before needing to be replaced. It is a relatively minor cost to keep your car running strong.

Tip to remember: Monitor how your car starts when you turn the ignition. Also, what is the response if and when you have to give it a jump-start? These will be the tell-tale signs if it is time to replace it.

Wondering how many miles does a car battery last? Consult our ASE Certified Technicians at Gary’s Quality Automotive for more information about car battery replacement and to schedule an appointment. Our auto shop proudly serves vehicle owners in Grand Island, NE, Wood River, NE and Doniphan, NE.
