Get peace of mind that it will start every time.
We’ve all dealt with dead batteries before. A dead car battery can render your car immobile and bring much inconvenience to your life. Fortunately, with a little preventative care, your battery can keep you and your car energized for several years. The typical useful life of a car battery is five years – anywhere beyond five years and you’re taking a gamble.
There are several factors that play into the useful life and efficiency of your battery. The biggest factors are age, weather and changing conditions. Batteries faced with constant high temperatures have a lower useful life. Batteries in cars making short trips do not get fully charged, contributing to increased discharge and shorter life expectancy. Climate and changing conditions can also contribute to corrosion on your battery terminals. For this reason, it’s important to have your terminals inspected, cleaned and kept free of corrosion.
If you’re curious about the condition of your battery, a battery test can be conducted quickly and easily at your Carlock Automotive car dealership, giving you peace of mind that it will start every time.
