Car batteries seem to always go dead at some of the most inconvenient times. At Hendrick MINI, we want you to be an informed vehicle owner. The following tips will help you get maximum use from your car's battery.

Since your car's battery quietly supplies power, it can be hard to know when it needs to be replaced or repaired. Periodically examine your battery. If you see any swelling of its case or corrosion around the charging posts, you may need a new battery.

If your engine takes longer than usual to start or your lights seem dimmer as you drive down Charlotte streets, it's easy to assume that the battery is the problem. Since the battery is part of a much larger electrical system, you may have an ailing alternator or spent spark plugs. A service appointment with our technicians can optimize your car's performance.
