Car Batteries: What You Need to Know

Posted on November 21, 2015 at 4:27 pm

One common cause for breakdowns is a flat or faulty car battery, and as a driver you have to remember that they don’t last forever. Terminals can become rusty or damaged over time, while short journeys can cause a loss of voltage.

Batteries can last significantly longer if the terminals are cleaned and checked, but in general old batteries may eventually have problems, yet modern maintenance free batteries can be much more reliable.

If you have an older vehicle, it’s very important to remember that your battery will not last forever, but regular cleaning and long journey can certainly help it live that little bit longer. Also make sure to get it checked out every so often by a garage that you trust.
