Batteries are one of the most common causes of vehicle breakdowns. Avoid unnecessary stress and expense by ensuring your vehicle’s battery is in good working order.
The staff at BestDrive are your vehicle battery experts, who can provide you with the right advice to ensure you get the most suitable battery for your needs. We stock batteries to fit most passenger cars, SUV, 4WD and light commercial vehicles.
The life of a vehicle’s battery depends on several factors, including how regularly the vehicle is driven, correct battery installation and the climate in which it operates. Once a battery has reached the three year mark, it is advisable to have it inspected yearly.
The battery warning light on your vehicle’s dashboard is a clear indicator that your battery is experiencing problems, however, there are other indicators to keep an eye out for, including:
Vehicle takes longer to start than normal
Battery may appear swollen due to exposure to excessive amounts of heat or cold
Vehicle may have trouble starting
Evidence of corrosion and stains around battery terminal
