Winter Is Here; Is Your Battery Ready?

A battery isn’t something you would expect to be affected by weather; as long as it’s charged, most batteries just work. Vehicle batteries, however, are actually noticeably impacted by cold weather. You may notice on especially cold mornings that your vehicle is a little slower to start then normal...that’s because your battery struggles a little more than usual in the cold.

Tips for Christmas Travel

Christmas is just a few days away! If you’re like us, for many of you that means travelling this holiday season. Here are some travel tips from Griffis Automotive Repair, Inc in Orlando, FL to make sure your Christmas journey is merry.

Importance of Routine Battery Check-Ups

As cars become more technologically advanced, the importance of your vehicle’s battery becomes continually more important. In the old days, a car battery essentially worked, or it didn’t; if it was good enough to start the car, it was good enough. Moderns vehicles are a different story. A faulty battery can cause a variety of issues, including engine codes, sensor failures, irregular transmission behavior, and the list goes on. Battery failure often causes issues that are commonly misdiagnosed, and in the hands of the wrong auto repair shop, a mechanic may spend hundreds of your hard-earned dollars chasing problems that don’t exist. At Griffis Automotive Repair, Inc in Orlando, FL, our mechanics are familiar with modern vehicles and the problems that accompany them.
