Planning a trip maybe out of state for vacation possibly down south or across the state? Get your battery checked at AutoFair Nissan of Chelmsford, Massachusetts. One thing that can significantly reduce the lifespan of your battery is heat.
If your vehicle is equipped with a traditional battery, you will want to check the level of the water in your battery's cells at least once a month, maybe more often in the summer months or in warmer climates.
In any state where it's hotter, the life expectancy of your battery can be about four years, but your battery is more likely to fail in the summer months in any state. A battery constantly exposed to mild temperatures can last about six years. Exposure to heat will significantly reduce the life of your battery. In the cooler climbs of Massachusetts your battery should last for almost the entire indicated by the expiration date on the battery.
If you're planning any longer hauls through warmer climates, like down south, it's a good idea to see our service department at AutoFair Nissan of Chelmsford, MA to make sure it's still able to receive a significant charge. Even if you don't own a Nissan we can take care of your battery no problem.
Most people tend to take their battery for granted because it really is low maintenance, but if you jump in your car, turn the key or push that button and nothing happens, that seems to be the only time when people remember they have a battery. That's not too bad if you're close to home, but if you're at a truck stop in Georgia say in August and your car won't start you'll probably be praying one of those truckers has jumper cables, but what happens if that jump doesn't get you on your way?
