The Truth About Car Batteries… Jumper cables hate us.
You’ve probably seen battery ads touting the benefits of expanded warranties and high Cold Cranking Amps (CCAs). Often, these features are mistakenly equated with superior quality.
What you may not know is that high CCAs can mean minimal Reserve Capacity (RC), which can negatively affect battery performance and longevity. TrueStartTM batteries provide the right combination of CCAs and RC approved by the Toyota engineers who designed your vehicle to meet Toyota’s high reserve capacity requirements for long life.
We proudly use Genuine Toyota True-2TM & TrueStartTM Batteries!
Tips for Battery Maintenance:
- Check your battery every now and then to make sure its terminal connections are clean, snug and protected from the elements. Signs of corrosion or leakage could mean that your battery is no longer operating as well as it should.
- Always unplug accessories and turn off lights when your car is turned off.
- Keep the battery in cooler places whenever possible. Heat damages batteries
