When Should I Replace My Car Battery in Dover, DE?

Contact Information


Just about every driver has experienced that moment of dread where you turn the key in the ignition and your engine merely sputters helplessly. In most cases, this is a clear sign that your battery is dead and poses a significant inconvenience if you have someplace to be. To help you avoid this issue, Price Honda is here to tell you more about car batteries and how often you should replace yours!

What Does a Car Battery Do?

Though your car relies on an internal combustion engine to generate power and a transmission to distribute this energy to the wheels to make you move, the whole chain relies on one component to get started—the battery. This component utilizes a complex chemical reaction to create electricity, which is then used by the ignition to spark off combustion inside your engine to get things going. Furthermore, anything else that runs on electricity in your vehicle—from the headlights to the radio—require your battery to power them. Therefore, the health of the car battery is an indispensable part of maintaining your ride!

Replacing the Battery

When your battery is starting to reach the end of its life, you’ll likely notice several telltale signs. The first and most common indication is your engine struggling to get going when you turn the key in the ignition. This is a sign that the battery isn’t producing enough of a spark to set off the required combustion reaction. You might also notice that your headlights are dimmer when your battery is getting old. In most cases, you can expect about four years of service from this component, although this can vary based on how much you drive, whether or not you do any towing, and if you experience extreme temperatures where you live.

I worked with Gary Larson and purchased a 2020 Honda Civic. Gary was super easy to work with and they helped me find the financing that kept my car payment where I needed it to be. Just a great group of people who made the car buying experience easy and stress free!

I would like to comment on my visit to Price Honda on Friday the 28th. i scheduled an appointment for 2:30 for an oil change. I arrived 5 minutes early , one of their staff greeted me immediately, took all my information and asked what my visit was for. They informed me that it would take about 45 minutes or longer for this service. I went inside to wait room , where they had coffee and drinks, nice relaxing area. I was approached around 3:15 to inform me that my car was ready ........ check out was quick and they went over the report for my 2011 Honda Accord. Very Pleased and Happy !!!!

I bought my 2016 Honda Civic in April of last year. Brian Tapley helped me purchase my first financed car, and he was awesome. I was very indecisive, however he never made me feel pressured to make a decision and answered all of my questions. Since purchasing my car I have had it serviced and received excellent customer service. Everything is always explained thoroughly and I leave knowing my car was well taken care of.

Thorough and efficient service. My van door was stuck open about 2 miles from the dealership. I pulled into service without an appt at noon. Krissy signed me in quickly and had the car scheduled quickly. Problem was diagnosed and fixed within a few hours. Communication via text and phone was excellent during time away from car. Not 5 stars because Price insists on a full diagnoses for most situations. This leads to identifying maintenance work that may not be necessary at the time. It costs about $135 and can lead to excessive up-selling. Identified issues are real but many are not necessary immediately. This leads to a lot of decision making which can be forced since they have the car and time is important to us all. As the saying goes, buyer beware.

I have brought in my old 2002 Civic multiple times and received nothing but fantastic service. My service advisor, Kristi, provides prompt feedback and always worked with me to provide cost effective solutions to my issues. I can say that, across two counties, and 6 states/provinces, Kristi has been the best service advisor I have had related to vehicle maintenance.

Justin Silva was recommended to us by a happy customer who had just purchased a CRV through him. We were so pleased with the service he gave us and the knowledge he had about the car! He was attentive and helpful and demonstrated a singular customer focus. He has gained us as loyal customers for the Price Honda dealership. So go to Price for your auto needs and make sure to ask for Justin We wanted to add a note about our recent experience with the Service Department. Nicole Mangone was our service rep and everything she did for us exceeded expectations. We needed some repainting done on our new lease and she had the paint rep come out to speak with us. They gave us a loaner car and said it could take a week. They were done in 3 days! Tracy also assisted us and was equally as helpful. It is so obvious to us that Price Honda works very hard to be the leader in car dealerships. They are a 5 Star operation from Sales to Service!
