ABOUT OUR BATTERIES SERVICE
What’s included with our Batteries services?
If you suspect it might be time for a car battery replacement, we’ll run a free inspection to see if you’re right.
If your battery’s okay, we’ll help extend its life by making sure it's free of dirt, grease, and corrosion.
If you need a new car battery installation, we’ll help you select one that meets your manufacturer's recommendations at a price that meets your needs. Then we’ll properly dispose of your old battery.
Why is car battery repair and replacement important?
Age, under-hood temperatures, vehicle vibrations, and extreme cold and hot climate conditions damage the internal components of a battery, limiting its life expectancy.
With battery failure the number-one cause of vehicle breakdowns, routine battery inspection and maintenance is the best route to confidence that comes with knowing your battery will start.
How often do I need a car battery inspection?
The average car battery life is about four years. We recommend you have it checked every six months.
However, don’t wait to get your battery checked if you experience any of the following warning signs:
- You have to jump start your vehicle to get it running
- Your engine turns over slowly, or not at all
- Your dashboard warning lights stay on
- Some of your electrical components aren't working
FAQS: Ask a mechanic
The life of your vehicle’s battery depends on its ability to hold a charge, as well as its ability to be recharged. There are several factors that may affect your battery life, including humidity, temperature, and other environmental factors. On average, batteries last 55 months *

You can test your vehicle’s battery by using a multimeter, which tells you the voltage of your battery. Fully charged batteries should measure at 12.6 volts or above. When the engine is running, this measurement should be 13.7 to 14.7 volts.
