No matter what vehicle you have, there is one thing that is always true—the battery is one of its most vital components! That is why we at Gaithersburg Mazda encourage you to take care of yours with routine inspections and replacements when necessary. Our Service Department can help you with this anytime during our accommodating hours, so visit us today!

Timeline

There is a general timeline to follow for your car’s battery, and we will outline it briefly. A good rule of thumb is to inspect it about every three to five years. At the three-year mark, your battery will begin to exhibit signs of wear and tear, so checking it out at this time can tell you how much life is left within your system. When it reaches its fifth year, it could possibly be time to replace it entirely. Of course, keep in mind that this timeline can be affected by certain factors unique to you and your vehicle. For example, your system might be more worn down at an earlier point because of repeated journeys on difficult terrains or frequent road trips. It is also important to read your owner’s manual for specific information on your system!

Warning Signs

There are also some notable warning signs that could give you an indication at any time that your battery isn’t at peak functionality. First, if your car seizes up on the roadway and requires a jump start to get going again, that is an obvious sign that your battery is flat, and will need to get inspected immediately. There are other, subtler signs as well, such as if you notice your car taking longer than usual to start up or if it emits a clicking sound while turning on. Additionally, take note if some interior features in your car start malfunctioning. Your display screens, headlights, interior lighting, and other electronics are all connected to your battery, so if they are acting unusual, that could be a cue to pop the hood and perform an inspection. Lastly, the most obvious signal to bring your car into our service bay is if the “check engine” light pops up on your driver information screen.

Test and Replacement

If you do decide to visit our service team, feel free to set up a time slot online using the Schedule Appointment tool under the Service tab of our website! We also happily take walk-ins. Upon arriving, our expert technicians will immediately get to work examining your vehicle using an electrical system test. If they decide that you need a new battery, not to worry—we have a Parts Department that can dig into their stocked inventory to find you the ideal replacement. Then, it’s just a matter of taking out your old one, cleaning out its terminal, and replacing it with a brand-new one! While we work, we invite you to relax in our waiting room and check out our Service Specials and Parts Specials online. We frequently update them to save you the most money on your maintenance project!

If you’ve decided that you would like to check out our battery test and replacement in Gaithersburg, MD, visit Gaithersburg Mazda today. Our team always puts their best foot forward with our customers, as you can see by these testimonials!

We've bought several cars over 25+ years at Rosenthal Acura and the sister dealership Gaithersburg Mazda and have had excellent purchasing experiences each time. We had bought a new 2015 Mazda 3S, which we really enjoyed, but last summer decided to buy something a little bigger for carrying bikes and traded it in on a low mileage 2016 Mazda CX5. We purchased an extended warranty since the car was just out of factory warranty when we bought it but we got a good deal. Recently the CX5 had developed a noisy driver's seat mechanism and the Navigation screen would not function in cold weather. I did some research and found Technical Service Bulletins for both issues, so I made an appointment to have them looked at. Angela was very helpful taking my information and setting up my appointment and Jake was my contact in the service department. I showed him the TSBs and a copy of the warranty and he took it from there. Long story short, the warranty company at first turned down the coverage, but Jake went to bat for me and finally got it accepted. His efforts saved me almost $900. They even took care of a recall while I was there and the repairs were well performed by Jorge. Thanks Jake and Gaithersburg Mazda!

We had the best experience at Gaithersburg Mazda with Sri and the sales manager. Prior to arriving there, we had a long day of dealing with other Mazda dealers in the area that lured us into their location with misleading advertisements. Once we met with Sri, he and his sales manager showed us the Mazda CX-9 that we wanted and had us into our new car and heading home in just under 2 hours. If you want to deal with serious professionals who respect their customers’ time, please go to Gaithersburg Mazda!

I just bought a CX-30 and the entire experience was fantastic. I started before the car was available (it's a new model) and dealt with Todd Patton. He was very helpful but not pushy. He tailored his contacts to my preferred (email) method and kept me updated on when the model would be available. Once they were in, we had a test drive and he handled the purchase. Of the seven cars I've bought over 2 decades in 3 different states, this was the most pleasant experience yet. Todd was a big part of that, and I highly recommend the dealer and Todd in particular if you are considering a Mazda! :-)

Friend's daughter was in the market for her first new car purchase. And yes, as I have a bad "habit" of getting a new car every 2-3 years, I've gotten comfortable to handle the "negotiations"....so that is where I got involved to assist: - I had a firm OTD (out-the-door) price in mind for a CX-3 - I was able to get the SUV + targeted price via email, with no "hassles" other than some back & forth (via email) - Everything was agreed upon remotely (as I live in NJ) - Price + Service was spot on! So you are thinking, "why the heck didn't you get the car in NJ?" Well it came down to finding an exact car + price + interest rate.....and Gaithersburg Mazda hit all the boxes for me! So yes- highly recommend this dealership, especially if you live locally!

Was not impressed with this dealership. Upon entering, the person who greeted us directed questions at my male partner when I was the one interested in buying a car. I felt like they weren't taking me seriously. When I asked about test driving a miata, I was told there weren't any to test drive, and there was one sitting right outside. I'm not going to buy a car without test driving it

I rarely write reviews but I had a great experience at Mazda Gaithersburg specially with the sales gentleman Joe. If you want a good experience and no sales pressure you have to check this place out and ask for Joe. I found him to be very positive and uplifting. I’m leaving this review despite the fact that I ended up not buying a Mazda. I found the management team to be reasonable as well.

I worked with a gentleman by the name of Todd Patton. He always kept my interests first, wasn't pushy (like a lot of salespeople are) and honest. Definitely recommend.

They are great! I had a problem with the Blind Spot Monitoring System on my 2017 Mazda CX-3. I had taken it to Brown's and Priority in Virginia and they fumbled around and could not get it calibrated. I had to contact Mazda Corp in California. Mazda Corp cares! They set up an appointment with Gaithersburg Mazda, even had my car toed (at Mazda's expense) because I had a broken arm and could not drive, and these folks finally did what should have been a year ago by either Brown's or Priority. So, I highly recommend THIS Mazda dealership for service. Big thanks!

I wanted to say how great all the staff at Gburg Mazda have been in helping me get the Mazda MX5 RF I have wanted for quite some time. Todd Patton was very helpful and answered all my questions and made the whole car buying experience easy to deal with. The car I wanted had to be ordered and it was easy for them to do and got me the car I wanted quickly as well. Upon arriving at the dealership just off the carrier Todd took the time to let me inspect the car and answered all my questions as well. After that Todd and Amin Rehman in finance took there time and helped me work out numbers that were much better than other dealerships offered me for the same car. They also gave me a wonderful price for my trade in as well. Also Todd and Amin got me awesome 1.9% financing as well and saved me a bundle as well. If you need a new Mazda Todd Patton and Amin Rehman are tops in there fields of expertise and will help you get the car you want for a great price as well. My hats off to all the staff at Gaithersburg Mazda for making my car deal a trouble free and easy experience as well. Thanks Again

After a terrible time at the Dundalk Mazda, I was very relieved to meet Sri who made purchasing my new MAzda CX-9 a breeze! Negotiation was easy and amicable, he took his time and was not pushy. Although the process took us after hours, he still spent the time to review all of the cars features once we purchased it. Will return for a future purchase. Thanks Sri.
