Dodgy car batteries are a common problem. In fact, a flat battery is the single most common reason for calling Roadside Rescue. Many people don’t realise car batteries need to be looked after, and as a result they are probably the most neglected part of a car. Simple things like keeping the terminals clean or making sure it isn’t bouncing around in its casing, will help car batteries last longer.

Here at Auto Super Shoppes Mt Wellington, we look after you by stocking only the highest quality car batteries. We know that cheap car batteries are inevitably going to create problems that are inconvenient and troublesome. Our batteries contain more lead plates, which conduct the charge, ensuring a longer life span. We stand by our products and parts in the knowledge that we are looking after your best interests in the long run.

And we put our money where our mouth is! All car batteries we sell come with a massive 3 year warranty! That’s the kind of quality, reliability and commitment you only find with us. It’s not just our mechanics that are the best in the business, but our parts too! And speaking of Mechanics, if you want to know more about car batteries, or which one is best suited to your vehicle and needs, then please pop in and have a chat. Our experienced, knowledgeable and professional staff will be more than happy to help you. We can give technical assistance on buying the correct battery and explain the best way to look after it.

If you are looking to buy a new car and you are unsure about the state of its battery, we provide a free battery inspection service. Our digital car battery tester will quickly give you a computerised printout to look at which will help you to clearly see what state your car battery is in.

A few warning signs that your battery needs to be checked:
• Your car is slow to start
• Using electrical components of your vehicle ( ie: the radio or CD player ) while the car isn’t running, causes the battery to go flat quickly.
• There’s a funny smell, almost like rotten eggs.

We do have a roadside rescue service anywhere in Auckland or other cities of New Zealand available at Auto Super Shoppes. So if you ever find yourself stuck on the side of the road with a flat battery, or any other mechanical fault you can call us. The next time you come in and see us, ask about our 6 month or 12 month options.

If you have any questions about your car battery, or would like to bring yours in for a check, then give us a call today!
