Don’t start off the New Year stranded in your driveway or on the side of the highway….treat yourself to a brand new car battery! 

Did you know it can take up to 20 minutes for your car battery to recharge after the initial start up? If you’re in and out of your car regularly on cold days, it could easily lead to that “car won’t start” scenario.

Cold weather doesn’t just hurt people — it kills batteries! Don’t wait for your battery light to come on — or to get stranded in a snow storm. Stop by Cape Auto and get yours tested! 

Need a new one? You’ll get $20 off a future purchase or service at Cape Auto (think oil change…) with a NAPA Comeback Coupon Code from now through February!  

AAA reports that your vehicle’s battery loses 60% of its strength at 0°F and 35% at 32 degrees: couple that with thickened engine oil (product of the cold) and increased use of accessories like wipers, and batteries take a beating this time of year. Your battery has roughly a 3 to 5 year lifespan, so if you don’t remember the last time you got a new one, it’s time to check on it. 

This might not be the year you finally stick to a planner and get to the gym, but it can definitely be the year you treat your vehicle to a brand new NAPA battery.
