One vital component of the performance of your Mercedes-Benz is your Mercedes-Benz car battery. This may have Union City drivers questioning, “How long do car batteries last, and how do you know when you need a car battery replacement?” The parts center at Fletcher Jones Motorcars of Fremont has all the answers you need to your Mercedes-Benz car battery replacement questions. 

Mercedes-Benz Car Battery Lifespan

How long do car batteries last? With most batteries you can anticipate a 4- to 5-year lifespan, however, there are things that can shorten the time between car battery replacements. To preserve the charge of your Mercedes-Benz car battery, keep the following factors in mind:

  • Time: Every vehicle will require a car battery replacement eventually. Despite their solid craftsmanship, even a Mercedes-Benz car battery is only able to handle so many charge cycles. 
  • Jump-Starting Your Car: While everyone can forget to unplug their car accessories or leave lights on from time-to-time, doing so results in needing to jump-start your car. When this happens, you’re actually shortening the life of your car battery. 
  • Weather: A dead car battery and need for frequent car battery replacements can also result from extreme temperatures. High temps can cause battery fluids to evaporate while freezing temps and below can cause your battery to lose its charge. 

Is it Time for a Car Battery Replacement?

Not sure if you need a new car battery installation? To avoid getting stranded around the Bay Area, keep a lookout for the following signs that you’re headed for a dead car battery: 

  • Your headlights brighten when revving the engine and dim while the engine is idling.
  • Your car batterycables and terminals and cables have corrosion visible. 
  • Your power windows, as well as other functions, slow noticeably when the engine is idling. 
  • Your battery is frequently drained and needs to be jumped. 
  • You notice fluctuations in your car’s power. 
  • When you turn the key/push the button, it takes longer for your car to start.

Caring for Your Mercedes-Benz Car Battery 

While you may end up with a dead car battery if enough time has passed, regular maintenance can help lengthen the time between car battery replacements. Ensure your Mercedes-Benz car battery receives the following care for a long life: 

  • Checks at routine maintenance appointments
  • Unplug accessories and turn off lights when exiting your vehicle
  • If the temperature is below freezing, make sure to periodically start your vehicle
  • Don’t let your car sit for an extended period without driving

Car Battery Costs: What to Expect

Car battery costs truly depend on the type of vehicle you drive. Hybrid cars have powerful batteries that can range in the thousands, however, these prices are often balanced out by the decreased reliance on gasoline. When it comes to non-hybrid vehicles, car batteries for luxury cars can cost more than the average battery due. To ensure you get a great price on your Mercedes-Benz car battery, explore the parts and service specials available at Fletcher Jones Motorcars of Fremont!
