Our team at Steamboat Motors Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram includes battery experts. Today's tips will help you decide when you need Steamboat Springs, CO battery replacement.

We suggest having your battery tested annually. Clean corrosion from its terminals, too. Your vehicle's charging system needs periodic assessment, too. Worn wires can cause recharging problems, and your alternator can go bad.

Of course, every car battery eventually requires replacement. When it's your battery's turn, we suggest seriously considering one with a lithium cell. While conventional batteries have been stock items in vehicles for decades, their lead-acid cells only hold up to 10% of the starts provided by the average lithium cell's lifespan. Certainly, you can choose a lead-acid battery. They cost less, and they are reliable for up to five years. On the other hand, if you plan on keeping your car for a long time, we suggest leaning toward a lithium battery. You'll know you can rely on it for several years.
