When your vehicle’s engine is running, the alternator provides sufficient power to all functions, from oxygen sensors to the sound system. Still, the battery generates the power necessary to start the engine and get everything going. You rely on your battery to start your car every time you get in it. When your battery is old and failing, a battery replacement will make sure your car continues to start.

At Lobbestael Automotive near Battle Ground, WA, we know how to determine if and when it’s time for your vehicle to get a battery replacement. Given a wide range of driving conditions, a battery replacement is essential. Vehicle batteries tend to have a lifespan of just four to five years, assuming a properly functioning charging system.


While your battery and charging system are typically reliable, Lobbestael Automotive suggests a regular inspection on any make you drive. We’ll give your battery and charging system a full inspection and diagnosis. Even if your car seems to be running normally, you may not notice a weak battery or charging system until it’s too late.

Battery problems tend to show up when you least expect them, usually with no warning whatsoever. The charging system is similar in this respect, which can leave you stranded. Pay a visit to Lobbestael Automotive for prompt service— and a battery replacement if necessary— and avoid the risk of your car letting you down.
