How Long Should the Battery in Your Vehicle Last?

Technician Installing A Battery
Kansas City Summers can be brutal on car batteries, Crossley Quick Lane can help no matter what car or truck you drive.

Of course, you’re in hurry. You’re always in a hurry. You jump in the driver’s seat, throw your collection of stuff into the passenger seat,  grab the wheel and get ready to go because it’s time to go

Except that today, when you turn the key or press the start button, nothing happens. Zero. Zip. Nada. Or maybe you get that half-hearted trying-to-turn-the engine-over sad song of failure. Sometimes it just clicks.

Whatever happens, the car’s not starting, and you’re not getting to work on time. Again.

How long should car batteries last anyway?

If the battery in your car or truck is over three or four years old, you could be tempting fate every time you turn the key.

Three or four years is the average lifespan for car batteries, and sometimes they can give out with almost no notice at all leaving you late, stuck, or stranded. And almost always at the worst possible time.

Sometimes your car will start to seem like it’s taking a little longer to start on summer’s hottest days. That could be a sign that it’s time to come see Crossley Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center in Liberty for a replacement.

How much should a car battery cost?

The price of a replacement battery for your car or truck depends on the type of vehicle you drive and the power, size, and quality of the battery. Larger vehicles and newer vehicles with extensive luxury and safety technologies require more power to keep you on time at work.

This month at Crossley Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center we have replacement batteries starting at just $174.95* or as little as $13.73 per month. You get a powerful, dependable, high-quality battery with an unlimited warranty for three full years and a prorated warranty for seven.
