Toyota: advice on battery maintenance during lockdown

Recommended Posts

Article in Fleetnews says that in the last four weeks Kwikfit has seen levels of Battery failures reach those normally experienced in January.

Extract reads:

"The impact of the lockdown has seen Battery failures over the past month increase to levels similar to the average for January over the past five years.

While this has mainly affected older vehicles, motorists with newer cars have also found their batteries struggling, says Kwik Fit.  

The number of fleet vehicles, such as company cars, requiring new batteries has risen by around 10% compared to the same period last year. This is a significant indicator of the extent of the problem as not only are fleet owned vehicles newer than the average, they are more likely to have advanced batteries, to support ‘start-stop’ technology.
