How Long Do Car Batteries Last?

Generally speaking, you can expect your Mercedes-Benz car battery to last between 4 to 5 years. Still, there are some things that can cause you to have a dead car battery sooner than anticipated. Keep the following factors in mind when planning for your next car battery replacement:

  • Time – All car batteries have a finite lifespan, as they are only made to handle so many charge cycles. As time passes, you’ll need to get a car battery replacement.
  • Extreme Temperatures – Extreme heat can cause the evaporation of battery fluids, while extreme cold can drain the battery and stop it from holding a charge.
  • Jump-Starts – If you leave your lights on, leave accessories plugged in, or let your car sit for too long, you may end up with a dead car battery. When this happens, you’ll need to jump-start your vehicle to get it running again. Do this too often, and you’ll be shortening the life of your Mercedes-Benz car battery.

When to Get a Car Battery Replacement

No one wants to be stuck somewhere with a dead battery. That’s why it’s important to keep an eye out for the following warning signs that you may be due for a car battery replacement:

  • Your headlights brighten when revving the engine and dim while the engine is idling
  • There are visible signs of corrosion on the battery terminals and cables
  • Power windows and other functions are noticeably slower when the engine is idling
  • A need for frequent jump-starts
  • Unusual fluctuations in power
  • The engine is taking longer to start when you turn the key/push the button

How to Maintain Your Mercedes-Benz Car Battery

While you will eventually need a car battery replacement, there are maintenance steps you can take to help preserve the life of your Mercedes-Benz car battery:

  • Make sure it’s checked at routine maintenance appointments
  • Take care to turn off lights and unplug accessories before exiting your vehicle
  • If you are somewhere with cold temperatures, make sure to start your vehicle periodically to keep the charge
  • Don’t let your vehicle sit for extended periods of times without starting your vehicle

What Does a Replacement Car Battery Cost?

Your car battery cost can fluctuate depending on your vehicle. Regular cars tend to have more affordable batteries, while car batteries for luxury vehicles run slightly higher. The car battery cost for hybrid vehicles tops them all, with a price tag that can run in the thousands. The advantage, though, is the replacement cost is balanced out by reduced gas consumption.
