DARCARS Lexus of Silver Spring Can Inspect and Replace Your Battery So You Can Keep Enjoying a Great Ride

When you step inside your vehicle, turn the key and hear the engine start up, you have your car battery to thank. Batteries start your car and keep electrical components functioning properly. They're an important part of each vehicle, but many drivers don't think about it until that battery dies and their car won't start. You can avoid the dreaded dead battery easily by having your battery inspected when you bring your car in for auto service or whenever you notice one of the following signs:

  • The battery light turns on
  • The engine takes longer than usual to start
  • Lights dim when you turn on the air conditioning or heat
  • You see corrosion or buildup on your battery
  • Your car has been exposed to extreme cold or heat
  • The battery is more than three years old

You can bring your car in to our service center, where we can test and replace it when the time comes. We have genuine Lexus batteries available, which are high-quality, durable and a great fit for your Lexus vehicle. When you buy one of these batteries, you'll get an 84-month warranty that you can count on.

Car Battery FAQs

  • How long should a car battery typically last? Car batteries usually last about three to five years. However, some factors can shorten its lifespan. If you drive in very hot or very cold conditions, this can shorten your battery's lifespan. Also, if you leave your car parked for long periods of time, that can lead to a dead battery as well.
  • Can a car battery freeze when it gets cold in the winter? A normal, fully-charged battery will not freeze in the winter. However, a discharged battery can freeze at 32 degrees, damaging your battery. Even if your battery doesn't freeze, cold weather can still reduce its capacity, so it's important to have your battery tested.
  • If I drain my battery accidentally, does that mean I need to get a new one? Not necessarily. If you leave your lights on or otherwise cause your battery to drain, the first step is to try to recharge it. Jump start your car and run it for a while to allow the battery to recharge, and it should run just fine. However, if that doesn't work or your battery dies repeatedly, then it may be time for a replacement.

If your battery needs to be tested, feel free to make an appointment at our Silver Spring service center. Our skilled technicians will test your battery, then replace it if necessary and dispose of your old battery properly. With our help, you can ensure your car has a quality battery that you can count on for a reliable start each time you turn the key.
