Reasons to Have Your Battery Checked

Summer heat and winter cold put a tremendous strain on your battery. These temperature extremes are the main causes of battery failure. Ask your Service Advisor to check the condition of your Subaru battery. They will make sure it is ready for all-season driving. Remember we offer Free Battery Inspection.

Hot Temperatures Can:

  •     Cause the water in your battery to evaporate faster. When the water level gets too low, heat can destroy your batter cells
  •     Cause metal to expand and loosen your battery connections
  •     Make your battery work harder, which shortens its life
  •     Drain your battery even faster if you run heavy electrical loads like a rear seat entertainment system
  •     Affect the time it takes for your battery to recharge
Cold Temperatures Can:

  •     Reduce your battery's engine cranking power
  •     Corrode battery terminals and prevent the full flow of current to power your Subaru
  •     Freeze engine oil, which makes it tougher for your engine to turn over. Cold fuel only makes it worse
  •     Require the use of lights, defroster and wipers for long periods of time. This additional load puts added strain on your battery
