The battery in your car or truck is one of those things that you likely take for granted. You do not even give it a second thought. After all, it does the job it is expected to time after time. However, there will come a day when your vehicle does not start and it will be because of the battery.

Extreme temperatures often cause a battery to wear down much more quickly than you would expect it. In the winter, extremely cold temperatures will cause your battery to use a lot of amps just to get the engine turned over and started. While new batteries have no problem with this, those that are aging can start to struggle.

The same is true in the heat of the summer. Those hot temperatures can decrease the life of a battery by as much as 50 percent before you even know it. Contact SMITHTOWN VOLVO CARS if you have any questions about your battery.
