Charged Up | New Orleans Auto Care

You can get your car battery to last longer with these driving tips and help from a New Orleans auto care expert.

Sometimes owners feel as if they're having to replace their car batteries every time they turn around. Blame that in part on the New Orleans weather. Fox News points out that "living in an area that has warm weather year-round shortens the life of your car battery."

But that's not the only thing that can shorten the life of your battery. Fox adds, "The lifespan of your car battery depends on where you live, how frequently you drive short distances and how often you keep your gadgets plugged in."

And there are ways to help extend your battery's life: "Avoid overusing your gadgets when your car is not running .... Make sure all of the car doors are closed and the lights go off after you park your car. Don't forget to unplug your car phone and iPod charger when you don't need them, and be smart about how many gadgets you have plugged in at once."

Keep short trips - those less than 20 minutes - to a minimum because they don't give your car battery long enough to recharge. Proper maintenance is the other thing you can do to make sure your car is charged up. Next time you drop by, have the certified New Orleans auto care technicians at Twin Tire and Auto Care check for corrosion and make sure the water level is correct.

Twin Tire has been the trusted New Orleans' auto repair and auto care shop since it opened in 1973. Twin Tire has three convenient New Orleans' locations to serve you - Marrero, Harvey and Hammond. Twin Tire also has a Harahan location for heavy commercial vehicles.

Now's the time to come to Twin Tire for some special savings. Twin Tire has coupons for a complete car health check (only $19.95). If you happen to need a new battery, Twin Tire can help with that, too, because there's a coupon worth $10 off a NAPA battery.

Or, you could donate them to a New Orleans charity like Cafe Hope or Covenant House New Orleans. (You can also help Cafe Hope and Covenant House New Orleans by taking part in today's Red Dress Run. They're just two of the more than 100 New Orleans charities that will benefit from that event.)
