ALFA ROMEO BATTERY
Alfa Romeo Batteries
Under normal circumstances, a typical Alfa Romeo battery should last around four years. The operative words here are, 'normal' and 'typical.' If you have a short commute to work, your battery may not have a chance to fully charge every time you take it out of the garage. Your battery may very well not last four years.
A good rule of thumb is to have your battery checked every time you change the oil in your car. Most automotive shops have an electronic tester. This is also a good time to check your battery for buildup around the terminals. Armed with safety glasses, gloves, a stiff wire brush and a pot of baking soda and water, you can easily tidy this up to extend the life of your battery.
Maintaining your Alpha Romeo battery in good shape means that not only will your car start when you want it to, vital functions like lights, windscreen wipers, hazard lights, electric windows, CD player, etc., will run smoothly. Running these systems while the engine is switched off may drain your battery.
Don't wait until it's too late. Check your battery regularly and perform routine maintenance tasks. Be prepared to buy a new one before it becomes an emergency.
