New Battery

Postby metrognome » Thu Oct 29, 2009 9:33 am

Well, I just changed my battery for the THIRD time in less than 4.5 years of owning this car. The 9-5 is known to eat batteries for lunch, but this last one lasted less than 1.5 years. Let's hear it for pro-rated battery warranties.

The 9-5 does give hints that the battery is dying but they're very subtle till it's almost too late. I should not have ignored the signs. For those of you with 9-5s, when you hear the turn signal skip a beat every once in a while, it's time to start planning to buy a new battery.
