Buying a Replacement Battery for Volvo 245

Sadly, your Volvo 245 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 Volvo 245 stranded. Look out for symptoms of a faulty car battery. A sluggish engine start, an illuminated check engine light or battery signal, swollen battery case, corroded battery posts, or weak lights may all indicate that your battery needs attention.
