Whether you drive an Audi SUV, a sedan, or another kind of automobile, you’ll eventually need to make an appointment to bring your car into our Audi service center near Woodland Hills, CA. Every vehicle needs maintenance, after all, so it’s just a matter of time before you’ll need a service appointment.
While service appointments are inevitable in order to keep your car in good shape, it doesn’t mean you should have to bring your vehicle into our Los Angeles Audi dealership earlier than necessary. You can do some basic things to prolong the time between service appointments, beginning with caring for your automobile’s battery.
Caring for your battery starts with determining whether it has enough life left to get you to wherever you’re going for the foreseeable future. You can do this by having your battery tested. You should test your battery at least once per year, especially if your battery is three-years-old or older.
Cleaning your battery is essential to ensure it continues to function properly. When corrosion builds up on your battery’s terminals, it can prevent your battery from supplying power to your car even when your battery has a full charge.
Just because your battery is under the hood of your car, it doesn’t mean that it’s fully protected from the effects of the elements. If you’re going to travel to a cold part of the country, you should park your vehicle in an enclosed space. Chilly winds can drain your battery. Even if a garage lacks heat, its walls will still protect your battery from winds that can sap its power.
