How long do car batteries last for?

    Car batteries generally last for 3-5 years, although there are exceptions on both ends of that range. Some manufacturers’ batteries only last approximately 2 years, and others are good for 7-8 years (a great value!). Batteries in hybrid cars are expected to last significantly longer, with some reaching 100,000 miles with no problem.

    Like albry said, car batteries last for about 3-5 years. Many drivers have found that their car batter lifetime tends to edge closer to 3 years than 5 years. This is largely attributed to driving habits. For instance, driving short periods of time (less than 20 minutes) successively. The car needs to be running for 20 minutes to for the “alternator to fully recharge the battery,” according to eHow.
