How Much Does a New Car Battery Cost?

Kelley Blue Book estimates that Jaguar batteries generally cost between $45 and $250—but since this range is so wide, this answer may just lead to more questions!

Many different factors can influence the cost of your battery, and it’s important to choose the right type of battery for your vehicle. So, when you’re asking the question, “How much does a new car battery cost?” it’s equally important to ask yourself what kind of battery you’d like to have in your vehicle. Factors that affect the cost of a battery include:

  • The size of the battery makes a big difference. Larger batteries will naturally last longer, but you should be certain that it will fit your vehicle. Additionally, larger batteries may be required for vehicles with larger engines.
  • Brand is another important factor. Batteries from certain brands may perform better than others, but ultimately, it’s most important to choose a brand that has been approved by Jaguar.

Ask our parts team about available batteries if you’re not sure what type of battery to use in your vehicle! We’ll show you all of our OEM-approved products and help you make the right choice.

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 Peoria 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 Phoenix 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

Unplugging your battery regularly or semi-regularly probably won’t do any favors for your battery’s lifespan, but it is an easy way to reset your check engine light.

What Type of Battery is In Your Car?

Your vehicle comes with one of several genuine OEM Jaguar batteries that have been approved for use in Jaguar vehicles. You might have a C2D55037 battery, or a heavy-duty battery like the T4A14085. 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 without limiting your vehicle’s reliability or performance.
