The car battery is the life of the engine; without a properly functioning battery, the car battery would not start. At Eich Volkswagen, we are proud to be an authorized dealership and service center for Volkswagen vehicles. We carry Volkswagen approved brands for car batteries. We are located in St. Cloud, MN, within a short drive from Sauk Rapids, Waite Park, St. Joseph, and Pleasant Lake. Our qualified technicians can offer certified auto services including battery inspection and replacement.
Our technicians have been trained and certified to perform a variety of auto services. They can offer a comprehensive battery inspection and replacement service. The battery inspection includes checking the battery case, wires, and terminals, followed by a battery test to determine the battery’s overall health. If the battery is weak, we recommend a battery replacement service so that the battery doesn’t fail on you.
If your car battery is struggling to start the car, then you should get it checked by a certified technician. Common indicators include dimming of the headlights, a misfiring engine, electrical issues with the vehicle, or grinding noise when turning the ignition key. If you have had to jump-start the car under normal conditions, then that is another sign of a battery that needs inspection. Keep in mind that when the battery starts to show these indicators, it might not last long, so it is better to get the battery tested as soon as possible.
In ideal conditions for a regular vehicle, the car battery should last 2-4 years, but you might not always get ideal conditions. Several factors affect the life of the battery. One of the major factors is battery maintenance. At Eich Volkswagen, we strive to educate our customers about best practices for battery maintenance at home. We recommend at least two battery inspections every year from an authorized service center. A professional might be able to find and fix issues that might not be weakening the battery.
Our goal is to provide the best in car care and customer service. At the state of our art service center, we have set up a comfortable waiting area that offers several amenities to our customers. The lounge has a complimentary beverage and coffee bar, business workstations, and children’s play area. For the convenience of our customers, we offer home/office pick-up and delivery service. All of our customers are offered a multi-point inspection so we can find and fix any issues to keep your Volkswagen running in top condition.
