Buying a Replacement Battery for Honda Civic

Sadly, your Honda Civic won't last forever. Neither will its battery. The average car battery lasts three to five years. Check your battery regularly and replace it as needed so it doesn’t leave you and your Honda Civic stranded. Watch for signs that your current battery is getting too old or too weak. A slow engine crank, an illuminated battery or check engine light, swollen battery case, corrosion-covered posts, and subpar electrical performance may all indicate that your battery needs attention.
