Volkswagen Battery Replacements West Islip, NY
New Jersey has been known for its cold winters and hot summers. Those extreme temperatures can be tough to handle and we try to stay indoors near more comfortable temperatures. However, we can't stay inside forever. We have places to go and people to see – and we rely on our Volkswagen to get us there. However, extreme temperatures can be particularly hard on our Volkswagen model's battery. This usually results in you going out to your Volkswagen (you are most likely running late) and discovering that the ignition won't turn.
Finding out that your vehicle's battery is dead is something that happens to just about everyone, but it is always a huge inconvenience. Luckily, you can usually prevent this from happening by simply bringing your Volkswagen to our state-of-the-art service center. Here, we have the ability to test your battery to see how much juice it has and whether or not it is time for a replacement.
Changing a battery is not something that we recommend you do on your own. They are heavy and can potentially leak, which is extremely dangerous. Our technicians are specially trained to safely remove and replace car batteries into any Volkswagen model ranging from the classic Beetle to the all-new Atlas.
One of the most common questions that we are asked is how long a battery lasts in a Volkswagen. There is no perfect answer – it all depends on your driving style, how often you drive, how often you plug in your phone in your vehicle, whether or not you leave your lights on after you turn off your ignition, and what kinds of extreme temperatures it is exposed to. On average, a car battery can last anywhere between three and six years. Once you hit the 3-year mark, we recommend that you have the battery tested twice a year. We are happy to help you do that (and replace it if need be)! So give us a call today and schedule an appointment!
