Is Your Car Slow Out of the Driveway? Time to Check Your Battery

Your car's battery doesn't just have one job. It has one big job and several other smaller, yet equally important ones. Specifically, your car's battery is responsible for giving your engine the kick of power that it needs to get going, and then after, it continues to provide your car's electrical components with the juice they need to make your driving experience a comfortable and convenient one.

That being said, we have one important question for you: when is the last time you checked your car's battery? Don't be embarrassed. If you're like most folks, there's a chance you've never checked your car's battery. Battery problems can often be tricky to diagnose. If your car has been starting sluggishly of late, or if its electronics have been dimming, it might be time for a battery replacement. Car batteries have a life of about three to five years, but if you notice strange leaks or corrosion on your battery before this period of time has passed, you may be due for a replacement sooner than you think.

Additionally, getting you battery checked early may uncover an issue that is correctable using just a simple service. It is an often-overlooked fact that batteries, like most other mechanical components on your car requires occasional service too. Without this service, you battery could fail more quickly than it would with timely service.
