Why Installing a New Car Battery is Important
The internal components of a battery are damaged by age, under-hood temperatures, vehicle movements, and extreme cold and hot environment conditions, reducing its life expectancy. Since battery failure is a leading cause of vehicle breakdowns, routine battery inspection, maintenance, and replacements are recommended actions to assure your battery will start.
How Often Does a Car Battery Need Inspected?
The average lifespan of a car battery is four years. Our recommendation is to have your battery tested every six months. If you see any of the following warning signs, have your battery tested right away:
- You need to jump start your vehicle to get it running
- Your engine turns over slowly, or not at all
- Your dashboard warning lights stay on
- Some of your electrical components aren't working
FAQS: CAR BATTERIES
According to a study conducted in 2010 by the Battery Council International, a vehicle's battery lasts an average of 55 months*. The ability of your vehicle's battery to hold a charge as well as its ability to be recharged determines how long it will last. Humidity, temperature, and other environmental factors can all have an impact on battery life.

A multimeter, which tells you the voltage of your battery, can be used to test your vehicle's battery. The voltage of fully charged batteries should be 12.6 volts or higher. This reading should be 13.7 to 14.7 volts when the engine is running. If you're not sure how your battery is doing, stop by your nearest Just Tires for a battery inspection today.
