Can Winter Have an Impact on Your Car Battery?

Your car's battery is the heart of its electrical system. Lights, defrosters and wipers used for extended  periods place high demands on the charging system.

In extreme temperatures..

  • Batteries lose about half their strength
  • Demands on batteries are increased
  • Engine-cranking power is reduced
  • Engine oil thickens, which makes engine turnover difficult
  • Fuel is cold and doesn't vaporize well
  • Battery recharging efficiency is reduced

If you're concerned about the condition of your vehicle's battery, our quick Battery Diagnostic test can put your mind at ease. You'll get a full report that shows how much life is left, if the battery needs a recharge, or if it requires replacement. We'll also check for corrosion and examine the cable connections for cleanliness and tightness.

If you need a new battery, we'll use a Genuine Subaru Replacement Battery. It comes with one of the best battery warranties in the industry — a 30-Month Free Replacement and 85-Month Prorated Warranty.
