Anyone who has lived in the heat and humidity of a long Kansas City summer knows exactly what we are talking about. We are smack dab in the middle of it and your car battery knows it. Perhaps when you think of a dead car battery, you probably think about it being the dead of winter. When you try to start your car one frigid morning nothing happens.
The drain on your car battery's resources most likely will occur during the summer's hot weather. Simply put, your battery is more likely to fail this time of year than in the dead of winter. The label usually tells you how long you can expect it to last. Five to 7 years is not unusual as long as the battery is operated under normal conditions.
DO NOT get caught stranded this summer! Whenever you suspect that your vehicle’s battery is on its last legs let the A-Team test it. They are the automotive repair and maintenance professionals at Able Auto Service. Come in for a check-up at 837 Osage Ave. in Kansas City KS…or call ahead (913) 321-1030.
