Your car battery ages, no matter what the mileage is. In fact, if your car sits a lot and you don’t use it on a regular basis, this may shorten the life of the battery. Most car batteries last for 4-6 years, with no correlation to the miles on the car.
If your car battery is more than three years, you should have it tested. If it’s five years or older, it’s probably better to replace it before it fails. Remember, it’s not the miles; it’s the years that matter. Plus, you don’t want the battery to fail unexpectedly at an inconvenient time, especially with the winter coming.
With winter coming, now is the best time to have your battery tested. If you don’t remember the last time you replaced your car battery, or just unsure, that’s ok, stop in. At Osceola Garage we offer free battery testing.
