What is a car battery?

A car's battery, which is rechargeable, is one of those components that must be fully-functional for a car to start. This is because its main purpose is to feed electricity to the starter, which starts the engine. Once the engine is running, power for the car's electrical systems is supplied by the alternator, which takes around 20 minutes to fully recharge a car battery.

How long does a car battery last?

  • As with all batteries, its strength will diminish over a period of time, rechargeable or not.
  • Although some batteries need to be maintained, most motorists opt for a maintenance-free version.
  • Car batteries are designed and built to last between 3-5 years.
  • One should buy a 5-year car battery if the car will be driven in harsh weather or on frequent, short car journeys.

What are the possible signs that a car needs a new battery?

  • The “charge” indicator on a car’s dashboard lights up.
  • Headlights are dim or don’t come on at all.
  • The engine does not, or takes a while, to start.
  • Some electrical components in the car are not working correctly.
  • Corrosion on the terminals.
  • The car backfires.

How do I avoid running down a car battery?

  • Frequently check that the terminals aren’t corroded and that everything is connected properly.
  • Its life can also be curtailed if used to power non-automobile electronic devices, such as a television.
  • Use the car at least once a week.
  • Don’t sit in the car with engine off, but the radio or lights on, for an extended period of time.

How long does it take to change a car battery?

  • Even though car batteries are heavy, it is usually a straightforward job to replace one.
  • If you don’t want to do it yourself then a garage can do it for you for a minimal charge.
  • They will often do it for free if you buy it from them.

How much does a new car battery cost?

  • Up to £100, depending on the car, the quality and the length of time stated on it that it is expected to last.

About Subaru

Japanese firm Subaru’s heritage comes from the skies: the company developed out of the Nakajima Aircraft Company (1917-1945), which in its day was the largest aircraft manufacturer in Asia. In 1954 the company debuted its first automobile with the Subaru 500, Japan’s first mini, but Subaru’s story really started in 1972 with the launch of its symmetrical all wheel drive. It’s this factor above all which makes Subaru stand out from the crowd - 4x4 is standard on every car that Subaru sells in the UK (apart from the Justy city car).

Subaru currently sells seven models into the UK including the popular Outback, the original ‘crossover’ and a trusty and tough SUV. Other much loved models include the Forester, a slightly smaller SUV ideally suited to rural driving, and the Impreza - a rally champion turned practical family car.

Subaru owners display impressive brand loyalty, and for good reason. These cars are known for their longevity - it’s not unusual to see Foresters and Outbacks on the used car sales boards with over 200,000 miles on the clock. Part of the reason for this is Subaru’s unique flat-lying ‘boxer’ engines, with pistons which punch horizontally, like a boxer, rather than up and down as in a traditional engine. This means less vibration and friction, and better lubrication, particularly on start-up. In some ways, Subaru build cars which are seemingly almost indestructible! For safety and reliability across the board they consistently score very highly indeed with drivers and independent reviewers.

What do you need from your garage?

This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in Maesteg. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
