Genuine Subaru battery service details provided by Capitol Subaru near West Salem, OR

It takes a whole lot of energy to get your engine started, before it can begin burning gas. That's why your car needs a big battery -- a couple of AAs just won't cut it! A car battery stores enough power to start the engine, but, like all batteries, it will eventually run out of juice and die. A dead battery won't be able to start your vehicle, and you might find yourself stuck! How can you avoid this? With a little help from the team at Capitol Subaru. We can not only install a brand-new OEM Subaru battery when the one in your car is ready to be replaced, we can test your existing battery to make sure it's ready for the long road ahead.

How Long Does A Car Battery Last On My Vehicle?

A genuine Subaru car battery could last 5 years or potentially even more on your vehicle. However, everyone's driving conditions and commute is different. As you drive, the alternator recharges the battery to replenish the energy used to start the engine -- that means your battery might have to work harder if you have a short commute. This is just one way that driving style and the nature of your commute can affect your battery's longevity. As the battery under the hood of your car begins to age, you may want to have a technician perform a battery health test from time to time, so you can know in advance if it's starting to go bad.

Why Do Car Batteries Go Bad In Winter?

Not only does every car and every driver have a unique battery situation, car batteries are even affected by seasonality. In colder temperatures your battery makes less power, meaning it'll have to work even harder to start your car. Oftentimes a battery that was on its last legs in summer will finally give up the ghost during the first cold snap of winter. Before winter arrives is the perfect time to get a battery health test and have a new battery installed if necessary to ensure your car starts up strong every time you turn the key.
