Automotive Tips from Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Austin: Battery Testing

The simple fact is that 70% of car batteries fail within 4 years. They just need to be replaced at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Austin when they are no longer able to hold a full charge.

Batteries are a big ticket item for most Austin drivers and it’s tempting to put off buying a new one as long as possible. But a battery that cannot hold a full charge requires the alternator to work extra hard, causing it to wear out prematurely.

Your Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Austin service advisor can test your battery to see if it should be replaced. Testing is a good idea for Texas drivers because a battery might still be good, but become dead because of a bad alternator or even a worn serpentine belt and tensioner.
