How to Care for Your Mazda's Battery
No battery can last forever, but with the right care, your Mazda’s battery will last a long time. At Hubler Mazda, we are ready to help you with all of your battery service needs. Read below the steps that you can take (with our assistance) to ensure that you get the most out of your battery.
Have Regular Battery Inspections
It’s a good idea to have your battery inspected regularly. One of the things we’ll look at is the battery terminals. We’ll make sure they’ll clean and free from corrosion. We’ll also make sure that the battery is secure so it doesn’t vibrate in your vehicle while you’re driving. We’ll also inspect the water level to ensure that your battery doesn’t need more water.
Avoid Frequent Short Trips
Believe it or not, frequent short trips are harder on your battery. If your trips in your Mazda car are mainly short commutes, it’s a good idea to have your battery inspected even more often to ensure that it’s still in great shape and you won’t be caught off guard on the side of the road.
Start Your Car Frequently
If you store a vehicle for a long time without driving it, it’s a good idea to start the vehicle periodically so your battery doesn’t die. If you really don’t drive often, you might want to invest in a charger for your car battery. Discuss with our parts department if you’re interested.
Avoid Extreme Temperatures
We all know that Indianapolis winters and summers come with pretty extreme temperatures. Be sure to store your car inside a garage when possible and bring your car in to Hubler Mazda’s service department after rough weather to ensure your battery is still in good shape.
