That's a tough question to answer, because there are quite a few factors involving the longevity of a car battery: First would be the quality of the battery, i.e inexpensive vs top of the line. Another factor is how hard the battery must work, i.e extreme temperature conditions. Also, is the battery maintained, and is the charging system working efficiently to keep the battery charged. On the average a battery will last for about fours years.

How long does a battery last in a vehicle

This depends upon the quality of the car battery, and how you take care of it. If it is in a car and the car is driven daily, you should expect the battery will last 5-7 years.

If the car is not driven for extended periods of time, a battery tender should be placed on the battery, and failure to do this can ruin a battery. If it is a boat battery, during the off season the battery should be removed from the boat and a battery tender put on the battery.
If your battery has removeable caps on the top, make sure the battery is filled to the interal ring with distilled water. It is especially important to do this before charging a dead battery.

Do not store batteries directly on cement (place a piece of 2x4 under it). I know why, but batteries stored directly on the cement seem to die much faster and have a shorter overall life.

2005 lincoln aviator on fifth battery in nine years. Why?

Motorcraft Batteries?

In my Lincoln L/S, the first one lasted 3 1/2 years & was done under warranty

Second one lasted 5 years

Now that one failed two weeks ago at 20 months

In my case the battery is in the trunk & you can't find a battery with
a vent for that car & ford batteries are on odd size, just for their
design or group size,go figure

The Motorcraft Max is free for 3 years & pro rated for 100 months,
so not a bad deal.

IF you have a big enough battery tray & a basic looking battery,
try the NAPA Legend Batt 8465 750 CCA 65 BCI (group size)

They are from East Penn MFG in Penn & plants in other states & their own brand is DEKA in the private parts stores

What I like is that there are no caps on top & no leaking, just like
the old AC Delco I used for 40 years & got 7 to 9 years out of them

I have had a Napa in my 30 year old blazer for two year so far

The question,well I think it is part battery & part the load the electronics puts on the batteries

When I open the trunk & have only the trunk light on & with a
new or old battery, I only get 12.3 volts

I get the same thing on my scan tool data when I turn off the car
& then put the key on,yet all data is good KOEO or Engine Running.

The first thing is to replace the batteries as 2 years is good. Most batteries operating 24/7 will be good for maybe a year. You may have to use a code reader to reset the receiver

Won;t start makes rapid clicking noise

Sounds to be a loose battery terminal or battery wire lead. Verify that the headlights are bright when turned on if so battery is not dead.

How many years should a new battery last in a new 2008 Equinox? It has been 2 years and the battery would not work the other day when I turned it on. Is it time to replace it already? Thanks!

it should last about 5-7 years but if you have any other amps,radios,subs,or any electronics added to it-that may be causing the problem.
