Did you know that an estimated 1 million motorists will find themselves in need of roadside assistance in the winter months between December and February – and most of them will have suffered from a flat car battery?
According to breakdown provider ETA, which analysed the records of 800,000 customers, modern cars are well up to the job of starting reliably on even the most bitter of mornings, but heaters, lights, heated windows and seats, even the satnav all place additional demand on the car battery.
In an ideal world you will realise your battery is on its last legs and get it replaced before it lets you down by refusing to start – sluggish starting and dimmed lights are sure signs that its days are numbered.
And remember etyres offer a convenient fitting service at your home or work for batteries as well as tyres.
