Avoid a Car Battery Bummer This Summer
Free Battery Checks & Free Shred Event Offered June 1st
May 29, 2018 - - A battery on the brink of dying rarely warns a driver before it fails, but having a simple battery test will. AAA is offering free car battery tests by skilled technicians Friday, June 1, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at its 49th Street & Louise Ave. store in Sioux Falls and at 815 St. Joseph in Rapid City.
Most drivers are concerned about battery problems in winter, but South Dakota’s summer heat can be tougher on a car’s battery than the bitter cold. “The typical life of a battery is three years,” said Marilyn Buskohl, AAA spokesperson, “so if yours is nearing that, don’t wait to get it checked out.”
AAA’s recent roadside data analysis indicates that vehicles 10 years and older are twice as likely to breakdown compared to newer vehicles and four times more likely to have an issue serious enough to require a tow.
“Long trips coupled with hot weather place additional strain on vehicles, so it is imperative for drivers to be proactive and prepare now,” said Buskohl
