Testing Now Avoids Problems Later

Many people don’t realize just how sensitive and fragile car batteries can really be. Not only do people who experience harsh winter weather have to worry about the health and longevity of their equipment, but heat can also shorten your battery life as well. If you go out to your car in the morning and experience a rough start during ANY time of year, it’s important to get your battery tested as soon as you can.

If you let small problems with your car battery carry on for too long, the problem could get worse much faster than you expect – leaving you stranded at the worst possible moment. Luckily, testing will tell you EVERYTHING you need to know – including how well your battery holds a charge, how significant the issues you’re experiencing are and so much more. Testing is especially important for car batteries more than four-years-old, which the experts at Downtown Nashville Nissan will gladly test for you in our automotive service center.

Tips and Tricks for Extending Your Car’s Battery Life

  • If at all possible, try to take car trips that are LONGER than 20 minutes. Your car battery takes about this time to fully charge and when you frequently take trips shorter than this, it can artificially harm your battery life.
  • Whenever you leave your car, do NOT forget to turn off all inside and outside lights.
  • If you charge your cell phone or other devices in your car, make sure you unplug all power adapters when you head inside for the night.

Complimentary Battery Check

Actuate the positive, eliminate the negative.

Neglect your battery and you risk being stranded with a car that won’t start and, if you think this only happens in northern winters, think again! Heat shortens battery life, so if your car suffers from sluggish starting it is strongly recommended that you get your battery checked. After just a few years, the battery loses its ability to recharge quickly and should be replaced before leaving you stranded. Fortunately, some quick and simple tests will reveal how well your battery holds a charge and whether it’s experiencing any problems. If your battery is more than four years old, ask about getting it tested at our service center.
