Even though the car battery is one of the most important components of today’s modern vehicles, most people give it little or no thought when shopping for a new car. They are more interested in the engine capacity, fuel efficiency, size, and comfort level. Remember that the battery has to manage a long list of tasks and devices, from starting the engine to powering in-car computers.

Just as the batteries for your computer or smart-phone become less efficient with every charge, so your car battery gradually deteriorates every time it’s charged. Because the battery is often “out of sight, out of mind,” flat or damaged batteries are one of the top causes for roadside assistance calls. Or your battery may simply be too old for the job it needs to do.

Although batteries can last for five years or more when properly cared for, most car batteries will become worn down and inefficient within three years of everyday use in normal conditions. They will become almost completely unreliable and unsafe.

Here are a few issues drivers should consider when thinking about car batteries:

If you are like some drivers, your vehicle’s owner’s manual has never seen the light of day. As long as your vehicle gets you from point A to point B, vehicle maintenance issues are the last thing on your mind while navigating your busy schedule. However, if you understand what regular maintenance should be done on your car before winter, you will make sure you are driving as safe as possible through winter’s harsh temperatures and help prevent expensive repairs.

If you’re not sure when a particular vehicle maintenance issue should be taken care of, check your owner’s manual against the schedule listed below that is typically recommended by car manufacturers:

When you hear you auto mechanic talk about vehicle maintenance or auto repair, do you know the difference? Routine maintenance items are those listed in your vehicle's owner's manual as part of the auto service schedule. These services are intended to keep your vehicle in top operating condition. Repairs are performed to fix a problem, ranging from basic tasks such as a brake job or patching a tire to more complicated services such as overhauling a transmission or diagnosing an electronics-system problem.

Scheduled maintenance can be performed at any auto shop. You don't have to go to the dealer where you bought the vehicle. Typically, you will find that independent auto shops are less expensive than dealerships. Federal law gives you the right to service your vehicle wherever you like without affecting your warranty coverage. Because maintenance items are fairly basic, any professional auto shop should be able to perform the necessary tasks.

To receive the best auto service possible, know the difference between auto repair and maintenance. You can trust Cannon Auto shop for all your car needs.
