How Much Does a Car Battery Replacement Cost?

Every car owner from North Charleston to James Island will eventually need to know, how much does a car battery replacement cost? Typically, car battery replacement service runs about $75 to $200 for the battery alone, before factoring in the cost of labor. You can find a premium selection of new car batteries for your Chevrolet at Rick Hendrick Chevrolet, whether you’re driving an electric Chevy Bolt or a Silverado 1500 pickup.

When to Replace the Car Battery

You want to avoid paying the car battery replacement cost prematurely, so how do you know when to replace the car battery? Here are some common signs that you may need to schedule a car battery replacement service soon:

  • Fluids inside the battery are evaporated
  • The battery is leaking fluid
  • The battery case appears swollen or bloated
  • When attempting to start your vehicle, there’s a slow cranking
  • The battery service light illuminates on the dash

How to Maintain Your Car Battery

If you’re wondering how often to replace a car battery, the answer can vary, but many professionals suggest every four or five years. With proper maintenance, however, you may be able to make your battery last longer. Here are some maintenance tips to help extend your battery life:

  • Avoid making exclusively quick trips around Mount Pleasant – take your vehicle out for at least 30 minutes of driving every couple of weeks, ideally on a highway where the speeds are 45 – 50 mph
  • Check the hold-down clamps for your battery so it’s securely in place and not jostling around
  • Always double-check that all your lights are off when you turn the engine off
  • Keep the exterior of the battery clean of corrosion build-up
  • When possible, park your car in a shady area to avoid the sun beating down on the hood, as the intense heat can shorten your battery life
  • Check the battery’s voltage routinely (it should be at 12.7 volts or higher)
  • Don’t let your car sit unused for extended periods. Ideally, you should drive it once per week
