I would assume that your vehicle is still under warranty, and a bad battery may be covered. I recommend checking with the dealership you bought the car at. If you aren’t having any trouble starting your car and it is only two years old, I wouldn’t guess it would fail. You may also want to use a multi meter to check your alternator, as it could be the problem your battery is going bad. If your battery isn’t under warranty and you need help getting this fixed, consider YourMechanic, as one of our mobile technicians can come to your home to service your battery as necessary.
