Without a working car battery, your Subaru ends up being purely decorative, so it's important to keep an eye out for signs that your vehicle's battery might be on its way out.

After all, few things are more frustrating than having somewhere to be and realizing too late that your battery is dead or getting stranded somewhere in Raleigh because your car won't start. The best way to avoid troublesome situations like these is to schedule regular battery maintenance at our Subaru service center in Cary so that we can help you keep your car battery in tip-top shape -- or replace it if it isn't.

How to Tell When You Need a New Car Battery

There are a variety of signs of battery trouble that aren't quite as dramatic as your car refusing to start, so we encourage you to keep an eye out for them and bring your car to our team of experts for battery maintenance if you notice any of the following symptoms:

  • Engine is slow to crank, and your vehicle takes longer than usual to start
  • Battery fluid level is low
  • Battery case is swollen or bloated
  • Battery leaks

Even if you don't notice any warning signs, we recommend scheduling a battery inspection at least once a year to make sure that your battery is working properly. If it turns out that your car needs a new battery, we can replace it for you.

If your Subaru is due for battery service or replacement near Durham, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at our service center for an appointment. Not sure if your battery needs attention? Contact us today, and we'll be happy to answer questions.
