What motorists are saying about our garages in Salcombe Regis

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.

What do you need from your garage?

We all have different needs, and choosing a garage is no different. For some of us, it’s the quality of the overall service which matters most; not just the work that’s done under the bonnet, but the human interaction that comes with it. BookMyGarage allows you to compare Salcombe Regis garages on everything from their waiting room refreshments or whether having your toddler in tow is going to be a problem, to how clearly the staff can explain the work your car requires.
