Battery Test and Replacement near Columbia, SC

Battery Test and Replacement near Columbia, SC

How Often Should I Replace My Battery?

Your battery delivers a pertinent spark each time you turn your key in the ignition, which is why it is so important to make sure that it is operating in a healthy manner. If you have recently heard your engine struggle to come to life, swing by Gerald Jones Mazda today for a test and possible replacement. This way, you can avoid having to call a friend for a jump start!

Red Flags

Before we tell you how often you should have this essential service completed, let’s go over the warning signs that will let you know you are overdue. This way, you can be prepared for anything that is thrown your way. For starters, if your engine struggles to start every morning, then this is it directly telling you that it isn’t maintaining an optimal charge. Another thing to be on alert for is if you have had to call AAA or a family member to swing by and give you a jumpstart. While you might get your vehicle started eventually, this still means that your battery has to rely on the strength of another component to get up and running. Lastly, you can always take a look beneath the hood to assess the situation yourself. If you notice a swollen battery casing, give us a call to schedule a visit.

Timeline

Now that you know a few warning signs, we will go over the window of time you should follow to avoid them altogether. Before that, we will let you know of a few ways that you can extend your battery’s lifespan. To begin, we suggest getting all of your errands taken care of in one fell swoop. The reason is if you are making multiple short trips throughout the day, then you are using your battery’s energy more often. You should also make sure that it is clean and minimize heat exposure to keep it running for a longer period of time. Lastly, there are a few things that you simply can’t control, and one of those factors is the climate that you live in. With the extreme heat that we experience down south, your battery might degrade quicker. That is why we suggest that you pull into our Service Department at least twice per year.

Service Tools

We have a few features on our website that we encourage our customers to use that will help them get a head start on their automotive endeavors. Before you drop by, make sure to take a quick glance at our Service Specials to see the deals we currently offer on our battery replacements. Then, once you find a coupon to help you save some money, you can use the Schedule Appointment form to find a time slot that meets your requirements. If you need some assistance or have a quick question, don’t hesitate to use the Ask a Tech form for some answers.

I have Been to a few dealerships after buying vehicles but never have I been mor pleased. Drop off took minutes if that and pick up was just as easy. The thing that stands out the most is the eagerness to go the extra mile for us in our situation. I'd give them 50 stars if Possible.

Was extremely happy with Keith, the sales person that helped us. I never felt pressured and he listened to what I had to say and took it into consideration in helping us find a car. Even though it was a rather lengthy process it was worth it and everyone we came in contact with was nice and courteous and kept us informed of what was going on while we were waiting. I am glad we went to this dealership and I am glad Keith is the one that greeted us and helped us get a car.

These people are great! Most dealerships, the sales team HAVE to be nice to you obviously because they are trying to sale you a car. But even after I purchased a car from them, they are super nice and just very awesome people to deal with. The salesman who I dealt with, Denny, went above and beyond to help out. His manager was great as well! Awesome service team as well. Again, all just great people. Highly recommend this place if you are out looking for a brand new car.

Great Dealership

The salesperson with whom I worked, Kieth, was courteous, knowledgeable of his product, supported by superior sales management in Pat, worked hard to get us into the car we wanted at the perfect price point. Post-sale support, including installation of hardware by service days later was superior. Cannot rate them high enough.

This was the first service, so it was free... free is always welcome. Service was done quickly, they accommodated my request to leave the car overnight, and the service covered a lot of items besides just oil and filter. Oh, and the invoice estimated what my next service would entail and cost. Great job!

Eric was very friendly, helpful and patient. I had done a lot of research on GJ website and other dealers, as well as an internet search on the vehicle. He was able to answer all of my questions. I had test driven a car in October but was not ready to make a purchase at that time. He stayed in touch via email. I do not like really "pushy" sales and appreciate his more reserved sales approach.

Awesome!

Dwight was awesome! Everyone in the garage at the computers were so kind. Deborah spent time with me, and didn't rush me. The service rep. who helped me Tuesday morning was great, but I forgot his name. These three individuals changed my mind about coming to the Mazda dealership more often! 2009 Mazda Mazda3
