Car battery performance declines significantly at low temperatures. In winter, a considerable amount of extra power is required to start the engine, run the ventilating fan and produce heat for the interior. Intense heat and extended downtimes cause batteries to self-discharge, and thus shorten their service life.
Breakdown statistics published by major automobile associations show that battery failure is the leading cause of problems on the road, and not just when it comes to older vehicles. Batteries are typical wear parts and should be replaced every 4 to 5 years.
To ensure longevity and reliability, have your battery tested according to your vehicle’s maintenance schedule.
