Car Batteries – Winters Worst Culprit!


The most common problems hitting drivers during the winter months are battery failures. Batteries can die at any time of year but cold temperatures hit car batteries hard. Car batteries are used much more in winter months - lights, blowers, wipers, heated seats, rear-screen heater etc are all used more frequently. But batteries also have to work much harder in general in colder temperatures, so before we add all those seasonal extras just listed, your car battery is already working flat out!


Pop down to Setyres Sidcup for a free battery health check. We’ll run diagnostics to make sure your battery is in good working order. Our expert staff down on Blackfen Road, Sidcup, will check your car battery against manufacturer’s specifications and offer any advice they see fit to make sure you don’t become a roadside statistic this winter.


Batteries last an average of 3 years so if you’ve noticed any signs of it struggling to start the car recently, we advise you have it replaced. Get £5 off batteries at Setyres here.
