Tips for Caring for Your Car Battery

Driving around safely is dependent on a properly functioning battery. At Lithia Subaru of Oregon City, we have a few tips to help you with your car battery. It makes it easier for you to get behind the wheel knowing that everything’s working properly under the hood.

If your car isn’t starting, it’s easy to jump to conclusions that it is your battery. Before paying to replace your battery, you will want to test the battery for its voltage. It could be corrosion on the battery posts or a bad alternator.

In some instances, batteries may not last as long as you would like them to. Much of this has to do with being exposed to extreme temperatures, either hot or cold. During preventative maintenance, you can make sure that your battery is being looked at. It will make it easier for you to identify when it’s time for your battery to be replaced.
