We’re sorry to hear you’re having battery issues with your car!
Car batteries in Florida typically last two to three years. This is half the average battery life of car batteries in states with colder temperatures.
While many people believe cold weather is worse for your car’s battery than hot weather, they are mistaken. Hot weather takes negatively impacts lead-acid batteries found in most cars and is harder on your battery’s life than cold weather is.
Your battery’s lifespan also depends on your car battery quality and how often you drive.
