Do you need to replace your car battery?
There are a few things to look for when determining if you need to replace your car battery or not. If your car battery is more than 5 years old (the average battery lasts about 4 years), you should bring your Toyota vehicle into Ourisman Toyota Fairfax to have it tested. Our service technicians will perform a test that will tell you how strong the battery is.
Unfortunately, there is no fixed rule or time when to get your car battery replaced. The length of time your car battery will last depends on a few things like how heavily the battery gets used, the quality of your current battery, the weather conditions you use it in, and how much maintenance you've done.
Unsure of whether or not you could use a new car battery? Stop by Ourisman Toyota Fairfax and have it tested. Our service technicians will help you decide if it's time to change your car battery or not. We serve surrounding areas like Arlington and Alexandria with top-notch auto service!
Benefits of Having an Ourisman Toyota Fairfax Technician Replace Your Battery
There are other car issues that will show the same signs and symptoms of a weak car battery. Vienna and Oakton residents that don't have their car battery tested before replacing it may find they changed their battery prematurely. Sometimes other items like loose or corroded wires or connections, a loose alternator belt, a faulty alternator or bad starter will show up like the symptoms of a weak or dead battery, when that isn't the case.
Bringing your Toyota vehicle to a certified service technician means you will be able to tell if your battery is weak, or if the problem is an extra drain on the electrical system being caused by a bad component. This can save you from replacing your car battery.
