Hello LUCAS drivers! Need a new battery? There is a good chance that you do – 70% of batteries need to be replaced within four years.

As this process continues over a few years, the alternator has to work harder to supplement the battery charge. Over time, enough of the battery is damaged that it can no longer hold a charge and it needs to be replaced. This also speeds up wear on the alternator.Your Craig's Car Care Inc service advisor can help you determine the right vehicle replacement battery for the way you drive around LUCAS, as well as the TX climate and durability needs.Contact Craig's Car Care Inc for information on battery replacement.Give us a call.
