Battery Replacement

For German & European Cars

Need Car Battery Replacement?

No matter how well you treat your vehicle, car batteries still wear out every few years and need to be replaced (typically every 3 to 5 years). It's just one of those regular maintenance items we deal with as car owners.

If you're experiencing any of these issues, it may be time to get your car battery replaced:

  1. Your engine is slow to start or "turn over." Over time, the components inside your battery will wear out and become less effective. When this happens it takes the battery longer to create a charge for the starter and you’ll have to wait a few extra seconds for the engine to turn over. A slow start is usually the last gasp before a battery kicks the bucket.
  2. Your lights are dim or there are other electrical issues. The battery powers all of the electronics in your vehicle, from your lights to your radio to your dashboard computer. If the battery is losing its charge it will have a harder time running these things at full power. The more things you plug into your car while driving — like your phone charger — the faster your battery will die. If you're having electrical issues you may need a new battery or some other auto electrical repair.
  3. The check engine light is on. In most vehicles, the check engine light can mean just about anything and it may come on when your battery is running out of juice. Get your battery tested by a mechanic to see if it’s working at full capacity. If not, you should get it replaced.
  4. You notice a bad smell. If you smell rotten eggs when you open the hood, a leaking battery may be the culprit. Bad batteries can leak gas, causing the bad smell symptom. Bring your car in to get it checked out ASAP and we'll replace the battery if necessary.
  5. Your battery connectors are corroded. Notice a white, ashy substance on the metal parts of your battery? You’ve got a corrosion issue. Corroded terminals (the positive and negative posts) can lead to voltage issues and trouble starting your vehicle.
  6. A warped battery case. The wild climate of the southeast can do a number on the lifespan of your battery. Exposure to extreme heat and cold can actually cause a battery case to swell and crack. If your battery is anything but rectangular, chances are it isn’t working properly.
  7. Your battery is just plain old. When was the last time your battery was replaced? In ideal conditions, car batteries typically last 3-5 years. Climate, electronic demands and driving habits all play a role in the lifespan of your battery. It’s a good idea to air on the side of caution and get your battery performance tested regularly once it gets close to the 3-year mark.
