How to Pick a New Car Battery & Replacement

Have you noticed your car is slower to start lately? Flickering lights on the dashboard and a lack of response when turning the ignition could be indicators of a failing car battery. You can check your battery annually at an auto parts store for free. If your battery needs to be replaced, you want to make sure that you find out before you hit the road.

Picking a new battery is generally up to your price level and amperage. If you live in a colder climate, you may want to pick a car battery with a better cold-cranking amperage for extreme temperatures. However, others will pick solely based on price. Most batteries come with a warranty. When you purchase a new battery, make sure that you see the battery-life. Most batteries should last from 2 to 3 years when properly maintained.
