Auto Shopper Guide: Car Batteries & Replacement

Waiting until your car doesn't start is not the best way to go with a failing battery. If you notice that the lights aren't as strong as they used to be or if your car is slow to start, chances are that your battery is dying. You should check under the hood and test batteries annually to see how much charge is left. The type of battery that you choose will depend on the car, weather, and price. For colder temperatures, you probably want to get a battery with higher cold-cranking amps.

Replacing your battery is simple. You just want to make sure that your car's charge is neutralized before touching any of the clamps and removing the old battery. Once you have done so, you can replace with a new battery and recycle the old one.
