How much does a car battery replacement cost?

I think I need to change my battery but I don't want to spend too much. How much is a car battery?

A car battery replacement will usually cost between $40 and $200. Of course, that will depend on a variety of factors—namely which type of car you have.
Car batteries typically last three to four years, so the investment isn’t too bad in the long run. But if you want to make sure your battery lasts as long as it can, try some of these tips:
  • Keep your battery clean
  • Don’t leave your car outside in freezing temperatures
  • Leave your car inside or in the shade on very hot days
  • Use the car periodically to keep the battery in shape
Most commonly, your battery will die when your car is parked—leaving you stranded. For this reason, it’s important to keep jumper cables in your vehicle as part of your emergency car kit.
