What are the longest-lasting car batteries on the market?

I want a car battery that can survive the cold and keep my car firing for as long as possible. What are some of the best options?

“If you want a car battery that will last a long time, be prepared to pay a bit more. While pricier, the higher quality will fetch peace of mind and potentially avoid a situation where you are stranded.
Keep in mind that what determines the type of battery you buy is the type of vehicle you drive and the type of performance you require.
Here are some of the tried and true options for longevity in the car battery world, often lasting up to six or seven years or longer:
  • Optima YellowTop Deep Cycle Battery
  • Delphi MaxStart AGM Premium Automotive Battery
  • Odyssey Performance Series 48-720
  • ACDelco M24AGM
You can visit a local auto repair shop or retail store to find out which option would be best for you and your vehicle.
If you want extra peace of mind, it’s always wise to prepare for the worst case scenario. Consider adding a roadside assistance plan to your policy to cover you should your battery ever fail. Jerry’s roadside assitance through Urgently is only $50 a year and pays for an Uber if you require a tow.”
