Your car battery might not be on your top list of concerns when the weather starts looking bad, but here at Lithia Volkswagen of Reno, we thought we should let you know it should be. Car batteries can be affected by both high and low temperatures, meaning that sweltering summers and frigid winters can negatively impact your battery's performance.

If you've noticed that your car battery tends to perform worse in the summer and winter months, there's a good reason for this. Lead-acid batteries, which are used in many vehicle models, are designed to work in a variety of climates. However, when things get too hot or cold they can suffer consequences, such as decreased capacity or just the need for a replacement.

If you want to learn more about how batteries are affected by the cold and what steps you can take to prevent battery deterioration, contact us at Lithia Volkswagen of Reno at any time.
