New York is a location of extreme temperatures during the summer and winter seasons. During the summer, there are the triple-digit heat waves. And in the winter, there are the polar vortexes that make Long Island colder than Antarctica.
These extreme temperatures can be extremely hard on your vehicle and usually cause the battery to die when you least expect it – and it usually happens on a day when you have someplace really important to be or when you have a major project due at the office.
Luckily, you can avoid having your battery die on you by bringing your Volkswagen model to our service center on a regular basis - twice a year is ideal (the spring and fall season is perfect). Our technicians will be happy to test your Volkswagen model’s battery. If they see that the juice is getting low (typically after three years of use), they will be more than happy to replace it for you.
While many drivers prefer switching their battery themselves, we recommend having a professional do it. Car batteries are heavy and there is the possibility of leakage. Our service professionals have been trained to safely handle used and new car batteries – and we have the means to properly recycle the old one. We also carry a huge selection of Volkswagen-certified car batteries – so we definitely have the right one for your chosen model, whether it is the Beetle, Golf, Jetta, Atlas, or any of the other high-quality vehicles in the brand’s lineup.
To learn more about Volkswagen battery changes or to schedule an appointment, please contact us or visit our service department today. We are located at 5700 Sunrise Highway in Sayville. Thanks and we look forward to helping you keep your Volkswagen happy and healthy.
