Mechanic under the hood

Car batteries are often the lifeline of your car. The battery supplies the power that starts the engine and keeps the car functioning. If a battery malfunctions, then there are a lot of potential problems.

Batteries, like most components of your engine, age and wear out. Fox News noted that the average life of a car battery is anywhere from two to five years.

As a car battery begins to wear out, you might face recurring problems. Your car may take longer to start and use more energy and gasoline to do so. Eventually, the battery may lack the power to start your car at all. A dead battery might leave you temporarily stranded while you have the part replaced.

As you search for a new battery, there are many things you need to consider. Don’t merely look at prices when buying a car battery. You may be making a mistake. Keep these buying tips in mind when getting a car battery:

  • Always consider getting a new battery before your old one wears out. If you have to jump start an old battery many times, it can damage other internal systems.
  • Fresh batteries are always better. Make sure your mechanic uses a new battery. If a battery is more than one year old, it is less powerful than a brand new battery. Even if an older battery has never been in a car, it will still lose energy over time.
  • Make sure the battery you buy is appropriate for your vehicle. Most cars can only use a certain type of battery. A certified mechanic can install the correct battery.
  • A cheaper battery may be lower in cost, but it may be less reliable than a more expensive one. Cheaper batteries might also have shorter lifetimes. It may actually be cost-effective to buy a more expensive battery. That battery will likely last longer as opposed to a cheaper battery.

Never forget that you should buy your batteries from reliable, trusted dealers. You should also have them professionally installed. A correctly-installed battery will make your car run efficiently.

Battery replacement is part of a car’s normal wear and tear, and auto insurance won’t likely cover it. That’s why you should always replace batteries before they damage other systems.
