Battery Test and Replacement in Rockford, IL

Battery Test and Replacement in Rockford, IL

Visit Anderson Toyota!

In every vehicle, there is one vital component that needs to be fully functioning in order for the car to run, and that’s the battery. Car batteries are just like the batteries inside your remote or phone - they wear away over time and eventually need to be replaced. That’s why we at Anderson Toyota have an expert Service Department on hand to assist you if you think you may have battery troubles. Call us or come in today!

Timeline

You might be wondering what the general lifespan is for a battery, and how often you need to get yours checked. As a general rule, we recommend checking your battery every three to five years. This is because around the three year mark, it will start to reduce in functionality. You may have to adjust this timeline slightly to account for your specific vehicle, your driving style, the climate you live in, and other factors. For additional information about your car, make sure to read your owner’s manual. And if you’re still not sure, you’re always welcome to use our Ask A Tech form to get in direct contact with one of our expert technicians.

Warning Signs

Apart from the recommended timeline, there are also specific warnings to look out for that could indicate a problem. The first and most obvious one is if your engine seizes up on the roadway and you require a jumpstart to get it going again. That is a surefire sign that your battery has deteriorated and is no longer working in the way it is supposed to. Other, more subtle indications include if you hear a clicking sound while starting up your car, or if it is taking longer to start up in general. It is also important to note that all of the electronics in your car are connected to your battery, so if you notice your headlights, display screens, or other equipment malfunctioning, it might be a good idea to get an inspection just in case!

Test and Replacement

If you do decide to bring your car in for an inspection, you can either use the Schedule Service Appointment tool under the Service/Parts tab on our website, or just drive up to our service bay! Our team will get to work right away by assessing an electrical test to check in on your system. If they determine that it needs replacing, our in-house Parts Department will be able to dive into their stocked inventory of parts to find the perfect new battery for you. Ask your technician about the Toyota TrueStart™ battery if you really want to step up your game! Then, all that’s left to do is to remove your old one, clean out its terminal, and install the new one! While we work, we invite you to relax in our upscale waiting room, or run some errands and return when we are finished with your vehicle.

Getting your battery replaced is never a fun task, but we make it easy and affordable at Anderson Toyota! Make sure to check out our Service Specials to see how you can save cash on your battery test and replacement in Rockford, IL!

Had to iron out a few small issues with the car, nothing major. Overall very happy with Anderson Toyota and Eric. Worth the 3 hour drive.

I needed a new car after giving my daughter my RX. I looked around for a Gen4 RX and decided that we wanted the F Sport Trim. I found one listed at Lexus of Rockford (Anderson Toyota Lexus). It was within my price target. I inquired about the car online, and was contacted by Michael Miethke from sales and told him that I was looking around at a couple of F Sports and asked him to help me out. We negotiated a price, and a few days later I went to pick up the car. The condition of the vehicle blew me away. It was L Certified and looked like new. Paperwork was straightforward and easy. I was still a little anxious about going into close with the Finance Guy. It turns out that my finance guy was Tony Signorella, and he did not play any games with me or hit me with any surprises. I currently own 5 Lexus vehicles, and this was by far the smoothest, fastest, and most comfortable transaction I have ever conducted buying a car. They actually respect their customers, and treat them fairly. I wish that I lived closer to this dealer so that I could bring this car back for service, but alas, I will probably end up taking it to the Lexus dealer near my work, and have to keep my guard up When it comes time to get rid of my GX, Lexus of Rockford will be my first call.

Chris Beto was the salesman who helped us get into a 2019 Lexus certified RX 350. We felt he was helpful and caring in trying to put the deal together. He was not high pressure which we especially appreciated. We have dealt with Anderson Toyota Lexus for the last 4 vehicles and have always had a good experience. And Chris was a salesman from who I would buy again. Thanks.

This was the easiest car deal I have ever had. It started on line, I new what I wanted and found a agreed upon number before I ever saw the car. I told them I would come in a day later to drive and finalize the deal if I fit in the car and it felt right. After driving, I new I wanted the RX350, we worked out the last del on the rebate and amazing ly I had a new car. Paper work went somewhat quick and was very painless, review of all the workings of the car will be done when I call them and they said they would come to my house if I wanted or I can come back. It was just a great experience, dealing with Chris the Sales Person and Joe the Finance Mgr,

I went into the whole situation mentally prepared to do battle over price and the smallest things when I first reached out to Devin, as well as expecting to pick out and identity shady attempts to pull one over on me as a customer like so many other dealers. But none of that happened! I could not have been more surprised or felt more welcome and comfortable buying from them. Ryan and Devin are truly incredible to work with and made the entire experience just that much better and they've gained a customer for life.

Got financing on our own, but Ben got a better deal on financing so we went with Toyota financing. Purchased tickets to fly into town, they offered to pick us up or assist in anyway?
