Mercedes-Benz Car Battery Replacement

If it’s been awhile since you’ve had a car battery installation, you may be wondering, “How long do car batteries last?” The lifespan of your Mercedes-Benz car battery can vary depending on driving habits and more. Learn how to avoid a dead car battery and extend the time between car battery replacements with the Mercedes-Benz of Chicago’s parts center experts! 

How Long Do Car Batteries Last? 

For most car batteries, you can expect to get 4 to 5 years between car battery replacements. However, your Mercedes-Benz car battery can lose its life faster depending on circumstances. Factors that can impact your car battery include: 

  • Frequent Jump-Starts: A dead car battery can result from leaving accessories plugged in, leaving lights on, and time spent sitting. No matter the cause, if you let your battery drain and jump it you’re decreasing the life of your Mercedes-Benz car battery in the long term. 
  • Time: Even a well-constructed Mercedes-Benz car battery isn’t made to last forever. Batteries can only handle so many charging cycles before their lifespan is over. 
  • Temperature Extremes: Car batteries can lose their charge in cold temperatures, while extreme heat can cause battery fluids to evaporate. 

When to Get a Car Battery Replacement

To avoid a dead car battery, you need to know the signs that it’s time for a car battery replacement. If you’re experiencing the following with your Mercedes-Benz, it’s time to schedule a car battery installation: 

  • Headlights – they dim when the car is idling and brighten when you rev your engine
  • Corrosion – battery terminals and cables show visible corrosion
  • Slow Functions – functions like power windows slow noticeably when the engine is idling
  • Dead Battery – a need for frequent jump-starts
  • Power Fluctuations – abnormal fluctuations in power
  • Harder to Start – it’s taking longer to start your engine when you turn the key/push the button

Mercedes-Benz Car Battery Care & Maintenance

Stretch the time between car battery replacements with regular Mercedes-Benz car battery maintenance. Simple steps you can take to care for your car battery include: 

  • Have your car battery checked at routine maintenance appointments
  • When leaving your vehicle, turn off lights and unplug accessories
  • Periodically start your vehicle if you’re somewhere where the temperatures have dropped. 
  • Make sure to drive and start your vehicle on a regular basis

What Does a Car Battery Cost?

Your car battery costs depend largely on the type of vehicle you drive. For instance, hybrid vehicles have batteries that can cost thousands. However, these battery prices are counterbalanced by decreased gas usage. For a luxury vehicle like a Mercedes-Benz, you can expect to pay more for a battery than you would for your standard vehicle. Still, Mercedes-Benz of Chicago’s parts and service specials make replacing a battery affordable for Chicagoland drivers.
