Dahl Subaru Examines the Role of your Vehicle's Battery


While the snazzy features, symmetrical all-wheel drive configuration and SUBARU BOXER® engine of your Subaru model may get all the headlines, the vehicle's battery serves a crucial role in powering your daily commuting experiences. Our team at Dahl Subaru is here to outline the importance of these functions, our recommendations for regular battery testing and maintenance, and how our Subaru service experts can help you address issues caused by common battery mishaps.


Why It's Important


A reliable battery powers the engine and electrical systems of your vehicle, operating everything from lighting to key technology settings inside. A worn or damaged battery can lead to issues such as a vehicle that won't start or a car that dies suddenly. Other problems include dim lighting and lackluster responses from your favorite digital features. For consistency in motion and avoidance of these issues, Subaru service here in La Crosse is recommended.


When It's Time to Replace


Every vehicle is different, and recommendations for battery replacement can depend on several factors. A typical timeline suggests replacing your vehicle's battery every three years, but that number can vary based on its current condition. If you notice a visible battery leak and bulge or the warning signs outlined above, this timeline moves up and we immediately suggest scheduling with our factory-trained technicians for an inspection.


Testing your Car Battery


Our certified Subaru service team will run diagnostic tests on your vehicle's battery. Based on the charge results, we will outline a course of action. The battery must pass a specific threshold to be deemed operational. If the results are lower than this benchmark, we can replace this battery with a genuine Subaru component that features a full charge.
