For most makes, the life expectancy of a car battery is approximately 4 – 6 years. This depends entirely on the type of vehicle, your individual driving habits and the environments in which you drive. Here at Taunton Tyres, we know the importance of a powerful and reliable battery and how, the lack of one, can significantly ruin any journey.

That’s why we offer a professional battery checking service which allows us to analyse the condition of your car battery. During this, we’ll look over your car’s charging system to establish how effective the entire system is running and whether any repairs or changes would improve your car’s performance.

There are a number of signs you can keep an eye out for that indicate your car battery may be coming to the end of its life. If the car feels sluggish when you turn it on or seems to take longer to fire up, this would be a clear indicator that something is wrong. In many cases and particularly with newer cars, the Check Engine light may alert or you may notice that an indicator comes up for low battery fluid. These are both clear signs that you may have an issue. In many situations, it is just a case of old age and the car battery has reached its expiration date.
