How Long Does a Car Battery Last?
The life of your car battery depends on how long it can hold its charge, and is capable of being recharged. Once it can’t be recharged, it’s dead. There are a number of factors that can affect your car battery, including humidity, temperature, and other environmental factors.
Let’s assume ideal conditions: no high temperatures, no excessive humidity – in short, a perfect world for your car. Under these conditions, you can probably expect your car battery life to be about six years. On average, a car battery lasts between two and five years. If you live in the northern United States, your car battery lifespan will be longer, because you’re in a cold climate. Warm climates tend to increase damage due to sulfation and water loss.

Amazon’s wildly popular voice assistant, Alexa, is making her debut in several cars this year. But as seductive and convenient as many consumers have found her in the living room, Alexa could open up a Pandora’s box of potential risks in the automotive realm. Numerous automakers, including BMW, Hyundai, and Ford, and telematics firms, including Inrix, are rolling out Alexa skills. With just a few spoken commands, owners can check the fuel and charge levels of their cars from their Barcaloungers. Hyundai started the trend last fall, announcing that it would connect cars to Alexa via the company’s Blue Link app, enabling owners to issue commands from home, such as “Alexa, ask Blue Link to start my Santa Fe.”

“Someone can’t just shout from outside to your Echo
and unlock your car.” – Dave Hatton, Ford

Since then, Ford has added to Alexa’s skill set. Owners of 2017 Fusion Energi sedans, for example, can use their Echo or Tap, which are both Alexa devices sold by Amazon, to trigger home-to-car features, said Dave Hatton, manager of mobile applications for connected vehicles at Ford. Without rising from their beanbag chairs, drivers can start or stop their cars, unlock or lock doors, and ask for information such as fuel levels and battery range. And that’s just the beginning. “We want to make it something much cooler than just stopping and starting your car,” explained Brian McGarvey, senior director of business development at Inrix. So the company is integrating Alexa with its host of navigation, traffic, and app management software. Indeed, the vehicular potential of Alexa looks nearly limitless, from EV power management to control over autonomous vehicles. In the future, designers expect you’ll be able to ask Alexa to summon your self-driving car from the garage to come and fetch you. There’s also the potential for coordinating smart cars and smart homes. #smartcar #Alexa #autonews #car #technology #autorepair #carcare #mechanic

Motorists in most states paid more to fill their tanks the past week as refineries increasingly switched to more-expensive summer gasoline blends and oil prices continued a recent rebound. The national average for regular gas was $2.40 a gallon on Thursday, up 3 cents from a week ago. The AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report said that's the highest since around Labor Day in 2015 — a 19-month stretch.
