How long does a car battery last from Honda?
The average battery life is four to six years. There are a lot of factors that influence the life of a battery such as scorching and/or freezing temperatures, short trips, and if your car is parked for a long time period of time without starting. The biggest influence on a battery’s lifespan is the environment you live in. If you live in a warmer climate, it’s a smart idea to get your car battery tested after ~2 years of ownership. In a colder environment, you can wait 4 years to inspect the performance.
