People often think that car batteries require very little maintenance, but in truth, they suffer wear and tear just like any other part of a car. This is why it’s so important to look after your car battery and regularly check that it’s in good working condition.


Although car batteries do have a set expiry date that will indicate when you should start seeking a replacement, batteries can be unpredictable and may suffer a slow decline without any major outward signs. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, especially when the alternative is being stranded in the middle of nowhere with a dead car battery! So it’s advisable that you get your battery tested once every six months.
