    Battery Replacement

    Keep Your Subaru's Battery Charged and Ready to Go

    To start, a car first needs a battery. While you may think it's its engine that brings your car to life, most of its power can be attributed to its battery. With this in mind, it's important to keep your car's battery in check. Having a well-maintained battery is a great way to keep your vehicle on the road, and can certainly help to keep you from getting stranded along the roadside.

    How Your Car Battery Works

    Consider your vehicle's battery to be its heart and soul. Providing the jolt of electricity needed to power all of the electrical components of your vehicle, your car wouldn't be able to start without the power of its battery. Your vehicle's battery doesn't just start it though. It also provides a stable, electrical current that allows the vehicle of your engine to keep running. Sounds like a necessity, right? That's because it is!

    How to Tell if Your Car Battery Needs to be Replaced

    So, how can you tell if your vehicle is in need of a new car battery? Well-maintained batteries can last for three to five years, but it's good to keep in mind when it may be time to replace the battery. If your vehicle is slow to start, if the check engine light is on or if you notice a rotten smell around your car's battery, it may be time for a replacement.
