Importance of Battery Maintenance

 

Your car’s battery is its beating heart. It is fundamental for starting the engine, powering wiper blades, charging phones on-the-go, turning on headlights, and much more. A well-maintained automotive battery by brands like Amaron, Exide, etc. generally lasts for 3 to 5 years. However, a battery can die prematurely if it is unauthentic, exposed to extreme temperature differentials, corrosion, dust, etc. If lately, your Wagon-R is struggling to start on the first go, it is most likely a battery-related issue. You can get it reliably checked and replaced at Car Fit Experts.

 

How to Choose the Right Battery Expert?

 

Warranty certification while buying a battery set is a key differentiator between premium brands and unauthentic ones. Established battery brands include Amaron, Exide, Bosch, 3M, etc. that offer at least a two-year warranty on the purchase of automotive batteries. Avoid purchasing a battery set from a local, non-branded vendor, even if they offer the product at a relatively lower price. Such sets will not come with proper warranty certification or after-sales service.
