Factors That Affect Mercedes-Benz Car Battery Life

As we mentioned, the average car battery life spans from three to four years, but Orangeville drivers may need a car battery change sooner, depending on their driving habits. If you’re wondering how long car batteries last, it’s best to have your battery levels inspected every time you take your vehicle in for a recommended service interval. Also, keep in mind the following factors that affect Mercedes-Benz car battery life:

  • Climate: If you live in a wet or wintry climate, it’s harder on your battery than a hot or dry climate is.
  • Bad Habits: Do you regularly play the radio from your car while doing other things like hanging out in your driveway or picnicking at the park? If so, you’re putting undue stress on your battery. Also, leaving interior lights or headlamps on by accident can shorten your battery’s life span. Furthermore, if you don’t drive frequently and let your vehicle sit in the garage, you can expect its battery to decay more rapidly.

Signs of Low Mercedes-Benz Car Battery Life

You know how long car batteries last in terms of the average car battery lifespan, but as we mentioned earlier, you may require a car battery change much sooner depending upon a number of factors. If you notice any of these signs, it’s time for a new battery:

  • Corroded connectors
  • Issues with cell phone charger, heated seats
  • Check engine light on
  • Slow-to-start ignition
  • Dim car lights
  • Misshapen or warped battery case
  • The battery case looks warped or misshapen
