Whether you should replace or recharge your car battery may depend on several factors. Here are a few things you should consider: Car Battery Age Probably the most important factor is the age of the car's battery. If it is over four years old and is starting to show signs of deterioration, it's probably time to replace it. You can try to recharge it and get a little more life out of it.
