A battery’s lifespan will depend on several factors, on average a battery can last five or more years depending on usage.
Most manufacturers recommend that you get your battery tested at least twice per year. In colder areas, battery fluctuations and drainage are more common so it’s important to inspect your battery before and after winter.
Batteries can be damaged or drained when you leave your lights on, if intense weather fluctuations occur, if there is ongoing corrosive damage, in the presence of charging issues, and more.
The average cost of a battery can range from around $300.
There are numerous reasons why a vehicle won't start. If it's related to the battery, the starter will generally not crank the engine. This is the telltale "click, click, click" you hear when you turn the key or push the start button that lasts for about 10 seconds. The battery voltage and charging information in the Driver Information Center (DIC) can also make you aware if the alternator is not charging the battery properly, or if a loose battery or starter cable is causing a problem.
In most instances, driving will recharge the battery fully in 1-2 hours, unless there is an issue with the vehicle. If your vehicle does not restart after driving it, have it towed to your nearest Certified Service experts to have a diagnosis performed.
The best thing that you can do is have your Certified Service technician perform a test on your battery when you get your oil changed. This helps monitor the status of the battery and helps prevent you from being in a situation where your vehicle won't start.
