Whether you are a customer needing a new battery installed at the service department or a handy garage mechanic, our parts department carries original equipment batteries for you. We welcome you to use our Volkswagen Service Xpress without an appointment for a super convenient battery inspection with diagnostic testing. We can install a brand new battery right away if the old one fails the inspection. Contact us with any of your vehicle’s battery needs at The Autobarn Volkswagen of Countryside.
We carry new Volkswagen original equipment batteries in the parts department that are backed by a warranty. These batteries are guaranteed to fit perfectly and provide long-lasting performance.
Routine battery inspections are essential for detecting old batteries with physical defects and electrical performance outside specifications. Battery inspections start with the certified technician checking the case for deformities, fluid leaking, and corroded terminal-post connection. Batteries found with any of these physical shortcomings should be replaced right away.
Certified Volkswagen battery inspections include testing the amount of electricity stored (reserve capacity) and the amount of electricity sent to start the engine (cold-cranking amps). A voltmeter instrument is hooked to the battery to test electrical performance against specifications. Batteries not performing at specifications should also get replacement service right away.
Battery replacement is usually needed every two to four years. A certified technician removes the old battery, inspects the battery charging system, including the terminal for corrosion, and installs the original equipment battery to factory specifications.
Automotive batteries are one of the few vehicle components that are essential for reliability, have a short life, and require routine maintenance. The ultimate consequence of poor battery maintenance is vehicle immobilization with the driver and passengers stranded, so be sure to adopt a more proactive approach that includes frequent inspections with diagnostic testing. This approach increases the probability of detecting and replacing old batteries losing integrity before they fail. Choosing us for routine maintenance such as oil changes is a convenient way to get routine battery inspections as we perform complimentary multi-point inspections with service.
