If you don't know much about car batteries, you might ask, "Is there a Chevy dealer near me who can explain why I need to pay such close attention to my vehicle's battery?" While some people may tell you it's the engine, your battery is the real "heart" of your car. That's because the battery is single-handedly responsible for starting your engine and supplying power for your automobile's electrical features.

Causes of Battery Wear, and Battery Care Tips

When you visit our Chevrolet parts center to look at the batteries we sell, we'll explain that it's reasonable to expect a given battery to least six years or so. While that's true, many factors can influence how long a battery actually lasts.

Whether you drive a new Chevy vehicle like a 2019 Chevrolet Traverse or you have a used Chevy model, the weather can have an impact on your battery's lifespan. While you may think the opposite, car batteries generally last longer in cooler climates than they do in hotter areas. Warmer temperatures cause batteries to lose water, which can lead them to expire earlier than they would otherwise.

Your driving habits will also influence your battery's longevity. If you don't drive often enough, it can shorten your car's life. Similarly, failing to maintain your battery can cause it to expire prematurely. When you bring your car into our Harlingen, TX Chevy service center, our factory-trained technicians will give your battery all the TLC it needs, such as removing corrosion and checking the battery's water level.
