How long will a car battery last?

The sticker on my battery says it's from 10/2016. How long will a car battery last before it needs to be replaced?

Answer
A new car battery will usually last about 4 to 6 years. However, some factors can affect the lifespan of your battery, so this is just a rough estimate. It sounds like you may have some life left in yours, but here are some things to consider.
  • If you don’t drive very often, then your battery will be weaker. Since your battery does not have enough time to recharge, it will work harder to power your vehicle.
  • Climate also affects how long your battery will last. Warmer weather will cause the chemicals and metals in the battery to wear down quicker, leaving you at risk of having to jumpstart sooner.
Lucky for you, a new battery only costs between $50 and $100 for most vehicles. And, with Jerry in your pocket, you’ll never have to worry about being stranded if your battery dies! Jerry’s roadside assistance includes jump starts, lockout service, key replacement, and towing.
