Did you know that the battery is one of the most important parts of a vehicle? It manages a large range of tasks and devices, from starting the engine to powering in-car computers. Auto shops report that flat or damaged batteries are one of the top causes for roadside assistance calls. Many batteries are simply too old for the job they’re performing.

After four or five years, most car batteries will be almost completely unreliable. Even with proper maintenance, many car batteries will become inefficient within three years of normal everyday use. Cold weather puts a two-fold strain on batteries by reducing power output (up to 50% at 20 degrees F) and increasing the amps needed to crank a cold engine (up to double the amps at 20 degrees F).

So what are the symptoms of a dying car battery:

  • The power accessories, such as headlights, radio, power windows, just to name a few, cannot operate as well as they should.
  • Most of the newer cars have powerful computers that are operating all the time, even when the vehicle is parked and switched off, drawing energy from your car’s battery at a slow, steady rate so that you may experience starting problems.
  • A dramatic decrease in performance over a short period of time. Your battery could go from 90% performance to 20% over the course of a few months.
  • Cars with stop-start technology place a greater strain on their batteries than standard vehicles, and often need a special battery.

Note to Remember: The relatively low price of a car battery replacement is worth the cost to avoid the stress and hazards of a roadside breakdown.
