Every car on the road today relies on a battery for almost all of its capability and features. From starting your vehicle, even in the most extreme conditions, to ensuring that power is properly routed throughout the charging system and distributed to all of the vehicles on-board electronics, the car battery is essential to maintaining the proper operation of your car. A failing battery can be the difference between having a reliable ride and getting stranded somewhere. As a result, it is a good idea to keep a close eye on the health of your vehicle’s battery and when necessary, replace it for a new one. It is a good idea to replace your vehicle’s battery every three to five years, even if you do not notice any signs of poor performance from your battery, as this simple preventative maintenance step works to ensure that your vehicle is reliable in every way. Signs of a failing battery can include having trouble starting your vehicle, especially after sitting for a prolonged period of time, check-engine lights, and even a dead battery, which prevents starting of the vehicle altogether. If you notice any of these signs, or have had your battery for a few years already, stop by our Mike Miller Hyundai parts department to secure a new battery for your vehicle.
When selecting the right battery for your vehicle, there are several important considerations to keep in mind. There are many different battery sizes available and each corresponds to a different performance rating that is suitable for specific vehicles. The actual size and location of the terminals is important to ensure a proper fit in your vehicle since you want the battery to be fully secured while you are driving. In addition, cold cranking amps and the amp-hour ratings of the battery should match what your manufacturer recommends. Stop by our service center to speak with one of our knowledgeable technicians to find which battery is right for your vehicle.
