Good auto care can help prolong the life of your car battery.
You have to admit that you felt a bit of sympathy for your car yesterday when you got in it to go to the Home Show and found your battery was dead. You felt a bit drained yourself because of the change to daylight saving time. But, as much as you'd like to blame your battery's problem on the loss of an hour's sleep, you know that's not the reason.
Batteries can fail for many reasons, according to MTA, a New Zealand group that represents car dealers and auto care and auto repair specialists. Among those: Age, loose connections, lots of short car trips, and low battery fluid. MTA adds that there are several things drivers can do to make their batteries last longer. Among them: Keep the battery clean and dry and keep the fluid level high.
But sometimes, all the prevention in the world won't help. At those times, it's wise to bring your car to Twin Tire and Auto Care to have our certified auto care technicians take a look. Twin Tire has been the trusted, reliable auto care and auto repair specialist in the New Orleans area since 1973. Twin Tire has convenient locations in Marrero, Harvey and Hammond to serve you.
