When you’ve snagged one of the great new car deals from a dealership under the Heritage | MileOne Autogroup umbrella, you can be sure you also have access to reliable service! With the winter getting colder and colder, one problem we start to see more and more at our Baltimore, MD dealership service centers concerns the battery. So today, we want to talk to you about what to watch out for and how we can get you back on the road as soon as possible.

How do you avoid getting stranded in the middle of nowhere with a dead battery? By being vigilant. Keeping aware of when you last replaced your battery and keeping a literal eye on your battery are two very important things you can do to make sure that your battery is still in good shape.

Most batteries have a shelf life, and that’s where knowing how old your battery is comes into play if you’re getting upwards of 4 to 5 years of usage out of a battery, that’s great – but also, watch out for signs it’s time to replace it. A “check engine” light and slow engine cranking are just a couple of the tell-tale signs something’s wrong.

The other few are where actually looking at your battery comes into play. If you see that your battery has a lot of corrosion on it, that could be a sign to replace it. As well, a bloated or misshapen battery case, away from the traditional rectangle you’re used to, is also a tell-tale sign.

So if you’re experiencing any of this, get into any one of Heritage | MileOne Autogroup’s dealerships today to make sure that you get your battery replaced. We use only certified Original Equipment and can ensure your vehicle will be running like new in no time.
