Battery Maintenance - How to Get the Most Out of Your Battery

Battery Service

In most cases, a brand-new battery will typically last up to four years. However, if you fail to provide your vehicle with proper battery service, you could end up having to buy a new battery much more often. At our state-of-the-art Chevy service center in Springfield, our technicians know what is best for your Chevy Silverado, Impala or Cruze. They will make sure your battery fluid levels are up to par, clean of any corroding battery terminals and test the overall health of your battery system. Between battery service intervals, remember to keep the following things in mind:

  • Turn off all electronics and lights before exiting the vehicle
  • Make certain your battery is securely fastened and not loose
  • Battery terminals must be clear of any corrosion
  • Don't use electronics while the vehicle is idling

When Should I Get a New Car Battery?

This depends on whether or not you're experiencing any of these tell-tale battery warning signs:

  • Difficulty starting your vehicle
  • Bloated or swollen battery case
  • Battery warning light is on
  • Power windows are slow

These are just some of the most common symptoms of a bad battery. Unusually dim headlights are another indicator that it may be time for a new battery.
