Extreme Temperatures and Batteries

The bitter cold temperatures are something that everyone in our area dreads and we here at Quirk Ford of Belfast are right there with you. Unfortunately, you can't stay huddled in the house all winter like you would like so when you venture out, your vehicle is responsible for keeping you warm and getting you where you need to go.

The cold temperatures can have a pretty big effect on your vehicle just from typical wear and tear. Your battery is something that will see some of this wear and tear since extreme temperatures can impact your battery.

When the temperatures outside are in the single digits and creeping towards zero, your vehicle's battery will only function at about sixty percent power. That means, when you go to start your vehicle your vehicle will have to work harder to get going. Your best bet is to keep your vehicle inside of a garage if you can.
