You already know that your car requires routine maintenance in order to continue operating at its best, safest, and most efficient. But there’s one thing that may fly under the radar – at least until it stops working: the battery.
If you’ve ever found yourself stranded in a parking lot or your driveway with a car that won’t start, you know the hassle and frustration of realizing too late that your car’s battery has given its last. And while you might find yourself relieved that it’s such a quick and affordable fix, actually getting your car to the shop for a battery replacement can be a pain in and of itself.
Save yourself the hassle of getting a jump-start or even a tow by being proactive about your car battery’s well-being. Just a little time and attention over the life of the battery will spare you the stress of having it fail at the worst possible time – which is any time you have someplace to go.
Battery service at Allen Honda is quick and budget-friendly, and it’s a smart way to keep tabs on one of the simplest but most important components of your vehicle.
There are a lot of factors that affect how long your car’s battery will last. Things like brand, the climate and weather conditions of where you live, and even the way you drive can either extend your battery’s life or cut it short. Generally, however, a brand-new car battery will last approximately three years – though it’s still important to keep tabs on its condition.
You can do some of that on your own, by visually inspecting the battery from time to time. Look for signs of corrosion or damage, and if you see any, it’s time to visit Allen Honda’s service center for some professional assistance. You might need battery service or a replacement, and our friendly technicians can determine what’s in your car’s best interest.
Being proactive about car maintenance is the best way to avoid unexpected issues and prolong the life of your vehicle and all of its many components. If your battery is past its prime, or if you’re in need of a simple job like an oil change or tire rotation, a parts replacement, or even engine or transmission work, you can trust the experts at Allen Honda to do right by you and your car. Our experienced team will inspect your vehicle and offer recommendations you can count on, and then they’ll get the work done fast – all for less than you ever expected to pay for top-notch auto care.
