How Often Should I Replace My Car Battery?

How Often Should I Replace My Car Battery?

Visit Our Service Department!

Making sure you can get your vehicle up and running every morning is a pertinent detail of owning an automobile. That is why we at Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg are here to tell you everything about our battery replacements! This way, you can hear your engine roar to life every morning and get your commutes started off on the right foot. When you are ready, swing by our location at 5200 Jefferson Davis Highway in Fredericksburg, VA.

Timeframe

Your battery is the main motivator of your vehicle, making sure you can receive that initial flicker when you turn the key in the ignition. That is why we put heavy stress on stopping by for its regular maintenance so it can maintain an optimal charge. There are a few different factors that go into the degradation of your component like the climate that you live in and your driving habits. With the frigid winters and brutal summers that we experience on the East Coast, your battery certainly takes a beating. That is why we suggest stopping by our service bay at least twice a year to make sure that you can make it to work on time since you will have to replace it every five years. 

Warning Signs

Just like oil changes and wiper replacements, there are a few signs that your battery has eroded past its point of no return. One of the most obvious things to be on the lookout for is your powertrain sputtering when you turn the key in the ignition. This is your current component directly telling you that it is due for a checkup and possible replacement. Another thing to be on high alert for is if you have had to call a friend or AAA to swing by for a jumpstart. Although you might get it rumbling eventually, that still means it can’t keep a healthy charge on its own. When you stop by, we will take a look and assess your battery’s remaining lifespan and let you know if it is time or not to get a new one. In the instance that you need a replacement, our Service Department would be happy to lend a helping hand!

Online Tools

We at Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg understand that stopping by multiple times per year to get your vehicle serviced can be a tedious process. That is why we have implemented a few tools on our website to help you expedite the procedure to get on the road and accomplish your various daily tasks. We don’t require appointments, but if you prefer, you can secure a time slot by selecting the online Schedule Appointment form. If you have any questions or concerns pertaining to what a battery replacement entails, you can make use of our Ask a Tech form to get in contact with one of the experts within our Service Department.

How often should I replace my car battery? We at Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg suggest you drop by twice per year so we can have a look during our accommodating hours.

Roman, Tim and Sabrina was absolutely awesome to work with. Roman made sure that my vehicle had every feature that was most important to me. Tim made sure the deal through with my terms and Sabrina was very fast and efficient in. getting everything done. I have never been in and out of a dealership so fast. This experience was so easy we rode off the lot asking each other "did we just buy a car?" Pohanka Nissan will most definitely get our business again!

It has been a rough time for me but I went to Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg and without Mr Matt Himes and Mr Bert Carlson I wouldn't have been able to get through it. They made the stress of buying a car go away. They were amazing and really cared for you. I would recommend if you want an amazing car buying experience to go to Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg and see these two gentlemen.

We purchased a new 2019 Nissan Pathfinder platinum model on 11 Nov 19. Our sales representative was Esma Espinoza and she was a pleasure to work with. Esma was extremely helpful throughout the process and was never pushy or overbearing like some sales reps. If you are shopping for a new Nissan in the Fredericksburg are I highly recommend you work Esma.

My husband and I went to Pohanka under a very stressful situation on 10/20/19 and needed a car that day. Having very little credit and I already had a car loan myself we knew it would be very had to get a loan. Also didn’t have much to put down on a vehicle we have 3 young children but my husbands transmission went out on his 2015 Nissan Sentra and the Warranties are all gone. We were met by a sales associate named Bert Carlson. He was very helpful, it did take a little bit to find the best car to fit our needs and tight budget but the Pohanka team worked very hard to get my husband into a car so he would no miss any time from work and we could not be more pleased with this dealership and the services they have provided!! Thank you Bert and your awesome Pohanka team!!

We did Save The Cure cause/event yesterday (10-21-19), after calling to speak with Ms. Juliana Coleman and requesting come in earlier than originally booked our appointment time at Pohanka, we got there at 11:30 AM and checked in at the receptionist desk and waited for her to come back in with working her first clients. We looked at both options either sell or trade. We test drove the new Nissan Maxima SV, we fell in love with it immediately. Juliana was very caring, friendly, fun, humble, knowledgeable, and met our expectations of what we were looking for yesterday. On behalf of my husband and I we would like to thank Juliana Coleman and her team at Pohanka Nissan/Hyundai for helping us seal the deal with the help from Billy Adams in bringing home our new Maxima to the family!! Great team and customer service! Thank you 🙌 💪👌

My wife and I were immediately met by Ian and we explained to him what we were looking for and he took us to the car we had in mind. He answered all our questions and was a pleasure to work with. Kingsley, the manager, was also a pleasure to work with and was able to get us where we needed to be in order to make the sale. Matt, the finance manager, was also a pleasure to work with and made the whole process a painless experience. Our new Maxima was delivered to us in impeccable condition inside and out and we drove off the lot that night enjoying our new car. Thank you all for making our purchase a little easier.

I took my 2018 Maxima for oil change and tire rotation. Everything went fine but as I was expecting from my previous visit Whoever drives the vehicle back from the shop to the costumer always leaves oil stain on my leather seat. Small but the dealer should put something on the seats so this doesn’t happen again. Don’t know if this review is gonna do anything cause I left a previous review complaining about the same problem and nothing has changed.

My husband and I are repeat purchasers. Matt the finance manager, always take extremely good care of us. He’s always warm, personable and fast. This time is no different💕 Although he’s not a Green Bay Packers fan, he’s still a amazing guy. Typically, you are in a dealership forever. Matt and this team listens attentively to your needs and works a deal based on that. We highly recommend if you are shopping for a vehicle, to come to Pohanka Nissan in Fredericksburg.
