Summer’s excessive heat is hard on car batteries and can lead to even further complications come winter.

The seasons can be brutal on your vehicle, and at Mercedes-Benz of Bend we take care to offer a complete package of tools and expertise to perform your vehicle’s battery maintenance just in time for winter.

Winter Battery Maintenance

You are most likely to experience battery failure during the winter. Avoid the hassle of a dead battery, especially during the rougher winter months, by taking these steps:

  • Get your car battery tested. Car batteries that are 4 years old or older are at high risk of failing. Our store locator can point you to the closest location to get a free inspection.
  • Keep jumper cables in your vehicle. They’re compact and incredibly handy if you or someone you know is stranded with a dead car battery.
  • If you have questions about your car’s battery life or how to replace a car battery, please don’t hesitate to call our Mercedes-Benz Service Center.

‘Tis the Season

Winter is the most common time for car batteries to start acting up. Warmer climates are better suited for your Mercedes-Benz car battery to operate at its maximum capacity, so you might feel like you have a full functioning battery when winter rolls around. However, fluids evaporate during hot summer months creating corrosion, which leads to a dead battery during the winter. As your battery ages, Cold Cranking Amp (CCA) capacity drops as the temperature drops. Also, as your car battery ages, it will have a harder time holding a current in cold weather. Be sure to get routine Mercedes-Benz car battery maintenance from Mercedes-Benz of Bend so you’re not stranded in the cold.
