Subaru Batteries and How to Care for Them

The battery is primarily responsible for getting your vehicle started and running electrical components. Darrell Waltrip Subaru can help you avoid any problems that come up with your battery. Battery problems can leave you stranded but caring for your battery makes sure you won't need to worry about that. Luckily, we can help you look for signs of a dying battery.

How to Identify a Dying Car Battery

The first things to look for are dimmer lights, a harder time starting your engine, or a dashboard light indicating an issue. These are the easiest signs that can identify a problem with your battery, but there is more you can do.

You can do a visual inspection of the battery to see if it has any corrosion, cracks, bulges, or other damage. Finding any damage could be an easy way to tell if your Subaru should come to our dealership for a replacement.

Batteries only last a few years, meaning you should get a battery inspection if you think your battery is getting to that age. Extreme weather and your driving habits can change the lifespan of a battery, which makes it hard to gauge exactly how long it'll last.
