The average car battery replacement cost ranges between $100 and $200, excluding labor.

If you’re ready to schedule car battery replacement service, our team is ready to help. Still have questions? Find out when to replace your car battery and how to care for this component over time by reading on.

When to Replace Your Car Battery

Sometimes, it’s easy to tell when to replace a car battery. In other cases, you may have a hard time determining whether the battery or the alternator is to blame for your issues! Still, most car batteries last around six years. If you’re keeping track of your replacement schedule well enough, you should be able to tell when you need a check-up or a replacement. However, drivers near Scottsdale and Cave Creek often have to deal with extreme temperatures that can wear out batteries prematurely. 

Here’s what to look out for:

  • Slow or sluggish starts
  • A damaged battery case
  • Low battery fluid levels, or a fluid leak beneath the vehicle
  • Low or dim lights and electronics when you start the engine
  • The check battery light is on
  • You’ve had to jump start your car several times in recent memory

Trying to determine if your battery or your alternator is to blame for your electrical issues? If your battery dies immediately after you disconnect your jump start cables, the alternator is the most likely culprit.

How to Lengthen Your Car Battery’s Life

You’ve seen how often to replace a car battery under ideal conditions, and no driver wants to spend more money on this service than they have to. If you’re anywhere in the Paradise Valley area, take the following steps to maximize the life of your Jaguar battery:

  • Take fewer short trips, which drain the battery without allowing time to recharge
  • Don’t drain your battery by using headlights or electronics when the engine is off
  • Keep your battery free of corrosion with an appropriate cleaning product
  • Park in the shade and limit the potential for overheating
  • Use a voltage tester to check your battery monthly (and hope for a reading of 12.7 or above)
  • Turn your car on regularly and don’t let it sit around for too long

Why Should I Choose a Genuine Jaguar Battery?

The batteries that are recommended for Jaguar vehicles are built to last and optimized for use in your favorite cars and SUVs. What’s more, all OEM Jaguar parts and accessories are backed by either a 1-year/unlimited mileage warranty or the remainder of your New Vehicle Limited Warranty, whichever is greater.

Although some drivers are drawn to aftermarket parts because they’re associated with lower costs, you shouldn’t have to compromise on quality. Explore our parts specials and service coupons instead, and reduce your car battery replacement costs.
