How Long Do Car Batteries Last?
Did you know that the average car battery lasts about 4 years? This is because the battery itself will start to build up a resistance to being charged until it can no longer hold the electricity required to start your vehicle. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to tell if you have a weak battery until the day that it does not start your vehicle. But there can be signs such as slow starts and the familiar whirring sound of the starter trying to turn over the engine. If you start to see the warning signs, you should bring your vehicle in to American & Import Auto Repair in Johnson City, TN and have an electrical charging system check.
