Proper car care demands that you keep the car battery itself running smoothly. A lot of people overlook this aspect of operating a motor vehicle for whatever reason, but they do so at their own detriment. The modern car battery controls a massive number of operations within your vehicle. If you allow it to go beyond about 3 years or so, you could have serious trouble.

There are a lot of roadside service calls that go out to mechanics every day seeking assistance because a vehicle has a damaged battery. It is a lot more costly to have to call someone out to replace a battery than it is to just do it yourself when you are due.

You might want to consider changing out the battery when you go in for a routine oil change or some other similar routine maintenance. That can keep you honest and on schedule.
