“The most common question we get from motorists is – how often should I replace my car battery? A battery can last on average up to three years. This is, however, dependent on your driving conditions, habits and the weather. It is inevitable that a car battery will die at some stage , thus, it is vital you set a reminder for when you need to change or check your battery. Take the time to do regular checks. This will not only prolong a car’s battery life, but will also help avoid disappointments,” says Joe du Plooy Group Marketing Executive at Tiger Wheel & Tyre.
“Feeling disappointed while sitting stranded in a driveway, city parking lot or even a remote holiday destination can be avoided if a car battery is given a little TLC, through regular maintenance and testing,” advises du Plooy.
