Shopping for Honda Civic Car Batteries

Your Civic doesn't have an expiration date, but its battery does. 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 sluggish engine start, an illuminated battery or check engine light, bloated battery case, corroded battery posts, or weak lights can all be signs that your battery is on its last leg.
