If your car is slow to start or experiencing signs of a dead car battery, schedule your Volkswagen battery service at our service department and brake shop. The professional auto mechanics in our VW auto shop can test the battery’s voltage with a multimeter and determine if a new VW OEM battery is required. If your car needs a new battery, we can recommend several options that fit your car.
There are several signs you need a new car battery. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms of a dead or dying car battery, schedule a service appointment with our auto shop and VW tire service center before you’re sidelined with a car that won’t start.
While a dead battery is a typical reason your car won’t start, the battery may not be the problem. A parasitic draw or expired alternator could also be why your car won’t turn over. Our service techs will diagnose and troubleshoot the problem and determine if it’s the battery or the alternator.
Once you know you need a Volkswagen battery change, you might be overwhelmed by the number of new car batteries available. Thankfully, the team in our parts department is here to help you find the right size car battery. We can recommend a few VW battery options that are the correct power for your vehicle and tell you how they’re different.
Most of the time, especially when comparing gold car batteries vs. platinum, the differences come down to how long the battery is under warranty. Do you want a three-year or five-year warranty?
Before you schedule your battery inspection with our service department, check our current service specials and discounts on auto repair. You might find that in addition to a free battery test coupon, you come across a Volkswagen oil change discount you’d like to take advantage of while you’re here. Our dealership is always looking for ways to help you save on auto repair and make it easier to stay on top of your car’s factory service schedule.
The best way to maintain the battery in your new VW lease deal is by driving your car. Regular use is ideal for getting the most life out of a battery because it keeps it fully charged and prevents corrosion. When a battery sits for long periods, it will slowly drain and require charging to operate. Draining and charging a battery diminishes the longevity of the unit.
The same is true of VW brakes and other components. The more you drive the car regularly, the better it will perform.
