In a recent blog post, we discussed some of the compelling reasons why you should bring your car to Porsche Jacksonville whenever it’s due for some routine maintenance or it needs a repair. Whether you operate a new Porsche car like the 2019 Porsche 911 or you plan to buy one of our pre-owned Porsche cars, you need to have your vehicle serviced regularly to ensure it continues to work properly.
One component you need to pay attention to is your automobile’s battery. Too often, people take their battery for granted. That is, they take their battery for granted until it fails to start their car. Your battery is solely responsible for starting your engine and supplying power to many of your vehicle’s systems, such as your air conditioning. Because your battery is responsible for such important things, you need to give it the attention it deserves.
Many motorists don’t know that simply driving their vehicle regularly at 1,000 RPMs or higher is an effective way to care for their battery. When you drive your car often for more than just a few miles at a time, it allows your alternator to restore your battery to a full charge. If your battery is left undercharged for too long, it will cause your battery to die prematurely.
Another thing you can do to care for your battery is to make an appointment to bring your vehicle into our Porsche service center near Fernandina Beach, FL. Our factory-trained technicians will test your battery, clean it, remove any visible corrosion, and inspect the unit for bulges and leaks.
