Jaguar Northfield knows that you have several things to keep in mind when it comes to caring for your 2020 Jaguar F-Pace. With the weather changing, a lot of internal problems can surface, but thankfully, we’re here to guide you through those problems so you can get back to enjoying your Jaguar. One common problem that occurs when the weather worsens is replacing your car’s battery. However, this is something you can plan for, so you don’t get caught at the worst possible moment.
There are a lot of factors that determine how long your battery lasts, and unfortunately, you can’t control one of the most common factors: the weather. Hotter temperatures can negatively impact your battery, causing it to degrade and lose charge faster. In hotter climates, car batteries generally last for about three years. In a colder climate, however, they can last for five years or more.
What you can control to the benefit of your Jaguar’s battery are your own driving habits. If you have the tendency to drive very short distances (five miles round trip at most) using a lot of battery power for things like climate control, loud music, or infotainment system use, then you could be using too much power, which can prevent your battery from charging back up. To combat this, consider walking more or letting your Jaguar sit idle with nothing on for a few moments before and after you drive to counteract it.
It’s important to come in for scheduled maintenance to let yourself know how your battery is doing. Our expert Jaguar service technicians can inspect your battery and have a Jaguar-approved replacement ready to go if need be. Schedule your appointment today!
