Batteries

Real Autohaus Automotive provides their customers with honest and dependable auto repair service. Whenever you are getting an auto repair or basic service at Real Autohaus Automotive, your vehicle’s battery is checked to make sure it’s in good shape (as part of our Courtesy Inspection). A surprise dead battery is never fun–especially in the summer or winter. Simple checkups can save you the hassle of being stranded because of a dead battery.

When a vehicle comes into a Real Autohaus Automotive, an ASE certified technician will load test your vehicle’s battery to confirm it still holds the proper amount of charge.

If the battery doesn’t meet our standard, we notify the customer and offer to change it for them. We will never sell you an auto part you don’t need. If a customer decides to have us change the battery, an ASE-certified technician removes the old battery and disposes it in a way that is safe for the environment.

Real Autohaus Automotive carries quality batteries from Interstate or Continental at every location. Get your vehicle’s battery changed by a Real Autohaus Automotive ASE-certified technician and avoid wondering whether or not your car will start when you need it to.
