Avoid Summer Roadside Emergencies by Having Your Battery Tested

Have you ever had your battery tested, or do you wait for signs that it is no longer holding enough charge? According to the AAA, two out of three Americans have never had their battery inspected.

Why is this so important?

The AAA also reports that battery failure is one of the most common calls they receive for roadside assistance. The organization expects to come to the aid of a projected 7 million drivers this summer—you don't have to be one of them!

Drivers often associate winter with battery failure, because freezing temperatures can reduce the battery's capacity to the point that it is unable to start the engine in the morning. Summer heat, however, is actually even more detrimental to battery life.

If you have a long road trip planned out for this summer, make Lindquist Ford part of those plans. Make an appointment with our Ford service center in Bettendorf, and have our expert technicians look over your vehicle. We can make sure your battery is still functioning properly, and that your tires are properly inflated and have enough tread.
