Car Battery Replacement 101

How long do car batteries last?
Depending on where you live and the type of driving you do, most batteries have a three- to five-year lifespan.
Are all car batteries the same?
There is no one-size-fits-all battery suitable for every vehicle. When it’s time for a new one, consider battery freshness, type, physical size, terminal locations, electrical specifications and warranty before you buy.

Most cars use conventional flooded lead-acid batteries, but increasing numbers of newer models with high electrical demands require an enhanced flooded battery or absorbent glass mat design. Installing the wrong type of battery can adversely affect electrical system performance and battery life.

AAA makes sure you get the right battery for your car – one that meets or beats your vehicle’s original equipment manufacturer (OEM) battery specifications. This will ensure a proper fit and optimal performance.
How does the AAA car battery replacement service work?
For 20 years, AAA has been dispatching mobile units to test and install new car and truck batteries for stranded members. For maximum convenience, AAA car battery replacement service (available in most areas) sends to your location a trained auto technician who performs a free diagnostic test of your car's battery, and starting and charging systems. If necessary, and with your approval, the technician can install a new high-quality AAA branded battery right on the spot.

As part of this convenient member service, AAA also collects and recycles all of the replaced batteries. Over the program’s lifetime, AAA has helped members recycle millions of batteries.
