To be confident behind the wheel, you’re going to want to ensure your battery is in good working condition. Unfortunately, your car battery isn’t going to last forever, so you’re going to need to know when you need to replace it. Typically, a car battery can last 3 to 4 years, depending on your driving conditions and habits.

One factor that can contribute to the life of your battery is the weather. After every winter season in Hyannis or Barnstable, it is important to pop the hood of your car and check out your battery. If anything looks unusual or out of the ordinary, be sure to contact our service department and schedule your appointment. Hot weather can also cause problems with your battery, so be sure to check it during the summer months as well.

If you notice flickering headlights, sluggish engine cranking, or one of your warning lights turned on, those could be a few signs that it is time for a new battery.

It is recommended that drivers check their batteries for corrosion. We don’t want you to be stuck on the side of the road around Harwich with a dead car battery.

Remember to schedule your service appointment for a battery check. You can do this online or by giving our service department a call. We also have service specials for our customers, so be sure to check them out before booking your appointment with us.
