How much does a new car battery cost?

In the last year, I’ve had to jumpstart my car five times. I’m sick of getting stranded and needing to rely on others for help. It’s time to get a new battery. What’s the average cost of a new car battery?

I’m sorry to hear that you’ve been having such a hard time with your car. It definitely sounds like a new battery is what you need. Generally, you can expect to pay between $50 and $120 for a standard car battery and between $90 and $200 for a premium battery.
Of course, the price will vary depending on your vehicle’s make and model. However, the convenience of having a fresh car battery will be well worth the price.
Beyond getting a new car battery, consider signing up for a roadside assistance membership. Companies like AAA offer road assistance at an affordable price and ensure you aren’t stranded should your car break down.
That said, car maintenance is expensive. To offset the cost of a new battery and roadside assistance, check out the Jerry app.
Once you download Jerry, just answer a handful of questions that will take you roughly 45 seconds to complete and you’ll immediately get car insurance quotes for coverage similar to your current plan. Jerry customers save an average of $879 a year!
