Does your Hyundai's engine start up lack a real punch? Radio not lasting as long as it used to? Is turning your ignition a bit of a gamble on those cold winter's mornings? These are all common signs of a battery that is not working at it's best. A replacement battery may be pricy, but is well worth the expense for something that could make the difference between being stuck in your driveway on a cold winter's morning, or motoring to work with the radio on, and your heating at 22 degrees.
It is recommended that you replace the cheaper car batteries every 2-3 years, although the more expensive batteries can last 5-6 years. A more expensive battery is definitely worth the investment, as it will last much longer, and will have less of a chance of being completely drained of power by heavy use. If you love Hyundai's your current-heavy in car gadgets, one of these batteries is a must. It will set you back about £100, but this is a small price to pay for a superior quality battery which you won't have to be concerned about again for a very long time.
Excessive heat, such as that experienced in a hot climate, or the heat produced by your car's engine when going for a long drive can be a significant cause of your batteries lasting a much shorter time than their average life, and so remember to keep your car out of direct sunlight wherever possible, and drive sensibly. Heavy overuse can also reduce a battery's life, and draining it completely often cripples both the amount of charge it can store from that point on, and also the remaining lifetime of the battery.
So be prepared to spend some money, drive smart, and use your battery wisely if you want to keep battery-related problems to a minimum.
