Should I Have My Battery Serviced or Replaced?

As an integral part of your car starting each day, you rely on your battery performing reliably. While it can go years without a problem, there are ways to get the most out of the battery you buy.

Keep its posts clear of corrosion, and if it's an older battery design, top it up with distilled water if its fluid evaporates due to high temperatures. If your car doesn't start one morning, it could be a faulty alternator that's the culprit, so you'll want to rule out other causes before putting the blame on the battery. If you do need a replacement, modern battery technology has come a long way, and lithium alternatives last much longer. If your car is newer, they might be a better choice over the older style.

If you've got any concerns about your battery, our qualified mechanics can give it a thorough inspection and servicing for you. They can also advise you on your best options if your battery needs replacing.
