The battery is essential to the life of your car. If it doesn’t work, the car won’t start, leaving you without a mode of transportation in Egg Harbor, Atlantic City, or Vineland, New Jersey.
If you’re looking for a “car battery replacement near me,” Boardwalk Acura is here for you! Below, we’ll tell you when you should get a car battery replacement, how the process goes, and more.
Read through the information below, then contact Boardwalk Acura if you have any questions or wish to schedule car battery service.
A car battery usually lasts around four years. However, many people don’t know how old their battery is.
Fortunately, cars give off several warning signs, letting you know when the battery is starting to fail and when you should start searching for a car battery replacement near you. These include:
As we mentioned before, car batteries don’t normally have to be replaced until at least the 4-year mark. There may be factors that could affect the timeline, though, such as environment and driving habits.
Luckily, there are ways to lengthen the lifespan of an Acura battery. First, you should avoid taking frequent short trips (if you can help it). If every drive you make is a short one, it doesn’t give the battery enough of a chance to fully recharge itself. Therefore, the battery voltage will reduce gradually until your vehicle will no longer start.
While you want to avoid taking short trips in your car, you still need to drive it around. All batteries will lose power slowly over time. However, the rate can increase when a vehicle is sitting unused.
In fact, a battery will self-discharge at a rate of 1% per day at room temperature and 1.5% each day at temperatures up to 86 degrees. A parasitic load, or power consumed even when an automobile is turned off, will increase that rate of discharge. If you’re unable to drive your car every week, we suggest connecting it to a charger to maintain the health of the battery.
Another tip is to turn off all the lights and electronics before you turn the car off. Make sure the radio and internal lights are off and unplug any power cords–like your phone charger–from a USB port or auxiliary jack. By ensuring that everything is off once you exit the car, you can reduce the amount of power lost inside your battery.
It’s important to note that even if you do everything in your power to extend battery life, it will need to be replaced at some point. This is especially true if your Acura is showing any of the previously mentioned warning signs.
When it comes time to replace a battery, you could do this type of maintenance yourself, if you’d like. Make sure you have the proper tools in hand and that the vehicle is turned off and in park. Then, complete the following steps:
While replacing a car battery is a maintenance task that’s easy to complete, it may be something to leave to the professionals. This is especially true when you consider that technicians have years of experience and training under their belt. As such, they can safely, quickly, and correctly replace your car battery for you.
Speaking of safety, this is a key aspect when dealing with the car battery, since there are electrical components involved. With the training our technicians received, they know how to appropriately handle all these parts. They will also thoroughly inspect the wiring and other parts of the system to make sure the connections are solid, and power is being delivered to the various systems in your car.
We also carry the most durable batteries in stock, with a variety of sizes. This means we have a battery that is specifically compatible with your vehicle and will keep your car powered for a long time. You can even bring your vehicle by to have us accurately test your battery if you are curious about its condition. With our state-of-the-art equipment, we will quickly be able to tell you if your battery is ready for a replacement or not.
Although it looks small, the battery in your car plays a large role in its ability to get from Point A to Point B. It is vital to getting your engine started, since it provides the jolt of electricity needed to the starter. It also helps the rest of the electrical components in your car get the power necessary to start functioning.
When you do experience trouble with your battery, there can also be other components that are failing. Once the car is up and running, the alternator takes over the responsibility of supplying electric power throughout the vehicle. It also charges your battery, which is what lets you use the battery to start the car over and over again.
When you do have your car battery serviced with us, we will also make sure the alternator is properly working. We can inspect the spark plugs to gauge their condition, as well, and examine the battery terminals to make sure there is no corrosion.
When you schedule an appointment to get a car battery replacement, you can schedule other routine maintenance to have all your service needs done in one shot. Keeping up with your recommended maintenance for your vehicle is important to preserving the various components of your car. This ultimately helps your vehicle perform well for years to come.
We also want to make things more convenient for you when it comes to having this maintenance done to your car. That is why we can replace old fluid, rotate your tires, and inspect any other parts that are due for a check when you are getting a new battery installed at our service center.
We offer even more convenience for our customers in the form of service and parts specials. In addition to new batteries, these offers can be for things like:
These specials do change from time to time. Therefore, you’ll want to double-check our current offerings before scheduling any type of service.
Service department is terrific!!! Always professional and prompt. Definitely explain service in detail and advise as to what services will be upcoming. They are also very careful with the vehicle and return it clean!!!
Took my Rdx in for maintenance and the lady that works in the service department was very friendly and helpful. She made me feel like a valued customer. Also didn’t try to sell me anything I didn’t need.
Very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Will return for service in the future. Car was clean went picked up.
This dealership has great customer service. I bought three cars over the years and remained a loyal Acura customer because of the service department.
From my first phone call to Boardwalk Acura, I spoke to Maria in sales, I knew she was going to make me feel comfortable and get me the car I was looking for. To close the deal I met with Brian in finance, he walked me through all my options and got me in the Acura of my dreams. One happy lady here, I love the car!
Every location should have a representative like Ms. Aquila. She provided top customer service and just made my day by being a kind and caring person. I look forward to working with her again.
This place is exceptional, I can’t believe I didn’t come here for all of my Acura’s maintenance/care sooner. The staff is so helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. My go to girl is Aquila. She explains what my car needs in a way that makes me confident that she knows exactly what she is talking about but communicates it in a way I can understand. I would recommend Boardwalk Acura to absolutely everyone!
Have used Boardwalk Acura Service for many years. Aquila Evans is always a pleasure and always strives to provide the best service. After all these years I think of her as a friend! Great job everyone in the service department!!
Had a wonderful experience dealing with Maria Diana. Maria was courteous, patient, efficient and professional. I got the best customer service at Boardwalk Acura and would certainly recommend this dealer to my friends and family
Appreciate the consult in advance of repairs needed, and updates on progress, and the one-time delivery.
Tariq was the perfect salesman. He was there for me when I needed him. Joe Viviani is a fair manager and he made sure that I was happy during and after the sale
I live in NY but I was on my way to Atlantic City. I called and spoke with Maria in sales She made the appointment for me without any issues When I arrived I was greeted by Aquila who was my service advisor.

Getting in and out was very easy and they offered the best for my car and what I was looking to get done! They ask if I would like a car wash and even offered water and coffee!!!
Excellent as usual. Aquila is a 10. I would recommend boardwalk Acura to a friend. I had my Acura MDX service and as usual I feel comfortable because my advisor was Aquila. I waited on site until service was completed. While waiting I went to look at new car displays in the showroom and I was impressed with the professionalism of the sales personnel.
We have bought two cars from Boardwalk and all our service is done here. Aquila in service dept is fantastic, she makes sure everything is done right every time.
Aquila is the absolute best! Service with a smile from start to finish. Talks through all options and keeps you in the loop during the process.
Outstanding Kevin was very accommodating, explaining every aspect of the lease/purchase, patient, answering all my questions. Also, Kurt in Financial was most professional, an expert with every detail

Don Hamilton was my salesperson at Boardwalk Acura. Don is an excellent sales rep who I found to be extremely professional, knowledgeable and patient while I decided between new RDX or certified preowned. Don took the time to go over everything as this was my first Acura. The dealership was very comfortable, clean and everyone was very friendly. The transaction went very smooth and I will highly recommend friends and family to speak to Don at Boardwalk Acura. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Acura!!!!’
D’andre R. was a great salesperson. Fair deal on a vehicle for my daughter.
Service is excellent. Aquila is highly competent at her job and professional. Waiting room was better before. Now there only water and coffee.
My service rep Aquila is the best ! I would highly recommend boardwalk Acura. My only suggestion is having outdoor seating and requiring masks as we are in the middle of a pandemic !
Although they set me up for a brake service without having all the parts , the customer service experience and mechanic knowledge made up for it they help me with my vehicle and answered all my questions , looking forward to go back they treat u with respect and honor regardless of how old your vehicle is or how u dress they truly treat you like a vip , I’m a Acura fan from now on

David Reyes was my salesman and he was great. He’s a people person, great personality and listened to my needs. I believe this is my 4th Acura and I love the way the vehicle rides and is very comfortable. I just love driving Acura’s. The people I dealt with were very professional.
After a few visits with Maria, I was able to find a vehicle to fit my needs and price point. I was not sure if I was looking for a certified preowned it new vehicle. She was patient and went through many different cars with me. Ended up with a new RDX-love it!
Service and quick and polite
Great experience as always. Agents are knowledgeable and very nice.
It was easy to make an appointment. The CS rep was very polite and accommodating. The service Dept team was very courteous, and performed all services and inspections within a 2 1/2 hr window. I have been an Acura owner for almost 20 years. I lease a new car every 3 years. In addition to enjoying my Acura’s, I find them to be low maintenance and very reliability. The dealerships Always provide me with Excellent service.

Staff is very personable and friendly. Aquilah always takes very good care of me. My vehicle had to stay a few days. They didn't hesitate to give me a loaner. This time I dealt with James also. Just great customer service.
I usually do my own maintenance work, but lately I’ve been just coming Boardwalk Acura! The staff are always friendly and personable. I’m never usually in a hurry, but service is still reasonably quick. I love it when I pick up the car and the tires shine! Thanks!
Rocco, Kevin and the entire staff was Amazing! Did not pressure one bit and they were up front with all of the finances.

Oh yeah and I Love the car as well! Highly, Highly recommend the staff at Boardwalk Acura!

After a rocky start with our leased car and sales people we are very happy with the service department. This was my second visit and every aspect was professional and high level. Bought and serviced car in Springfield NJ prior to this and was so disappointed.
Very friendly, pleasant staff. Donald Hamilton was especially helpful. Actually everyone was. An overall comfortable atmosphere for a first time Acura customer.
Great service and vey organized with their company. Their staff that worked there were also very friendly and helpful. They made me feel welcome Great place
Steve BonGiovanni was our salesmen. He was very helpful in helping making our selection. It seemed effortless during the process! Thanks Steve for your help!

Courteous, helpful and very pleasant staff. Service was completed in a timely fashion including complimentary car wash. Will definitely be a returning customer.
Very responsive to my needs; excellent service Knowledgeable
Rocco and Don go above and beyond to make the customers happy.
I had such an incredible first experience with the Boardwalk Acura service department!!! James and Aquila are the best!!!! They have great customer service, was really attentive, and really care about their customers making you feel like family! I wasn’t quite sure what the exact problem was with my RDX so I took it into them and they found numerous things that needed to be fix. They explained everything throughly and went above and beyond with fixing my car! Shout out to the mechanics that dealt with my car and made it into feel like driving a brand new ...
Diana was great!!!! Love my MDX 😍
Aquila, my service manager, was extremely professional and courteous. Service was reasonably priced. I would recommend anyone to visit this dealer for service. All around a great experience.
Aquila always greets you with a smile and the techs are able to efficiently deliver your vehicle back to you in a timely manner. Great place to do business.
Jeff Wright, my son, is the very best mechanic! Love Aquilla too!! Always gives me the best service. I will always return to Boardwalk Acura to have my car serviced.
Best customer service I have received from an Acura Dealership. Awesome people and great price👌🏼
Our sales person was great! Took the time to go over everything and easy process! Everyone was friendly, everything was clean, and helped us find what we were looking for.
No pressure sales. The dealer kept in contact with us while we were deciding on our options. The salesman responded to our phone calls and requests in a timely fashion. Paperwork was easy and painless.
We visited the showroom several times while we compared different cars we were interested in. We were given all of the info we requested. We were permitted to take a test drive. The dealer kept in contact with us without being overbearing. He even offered us demo models to lease. In the end, we leased a new Acura MDX. The dealership gave us great incentives. We’re very happy with the experience and the salesman.
My A/C system was having an issue with no cold air. I brought it to another local mechanic to test for a leak (he incorrectly told me there was no leak and recharged it.) After a week or two, there was no cold air, again. Suspicious, I brought it to Acura and they took the time and found the leak. Thank you Acura and Mr. R. Sobieraj!
Great staff always willing to go the extra mile
Service is excellent and sales is always easy
Service representatives are always very nice. I met Aquila today. She was great. She was very thorough, personable, and a pleasure to work with. The work done on my car was great and the complimentary car wash is a nice plus. I would definitely recommend going here.
Excellent service! I went for a oil change and it only took around 15-20 minutes. I forget the reps name, but he was awesome. I highly recommend boardwalk Acura.
Great service department. Always accommodating and have never had a bad experience. Aquila is one of the most efficient and pleasant customer service representatives that I have dealt with
Excellent and timely service. The employees are courteous and friendly. This is my second car with Boardwalk Aura and there probably be a third car.
Friendly staff in the dealership. The service rep is very courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. Nice touches such as coffee, what water etc. The appointment was set over Acura’s website , it was a breeze!
Management is the best! They really care.
Went for airbag replacement, transmission fluid flush and computer reset. In & out in under 1.5 hours. Thought I was going to be there at least til lunchtime. Very happy
Ms. Evans in the service department is always a pleasure to deal with. I never feel like I’m being ripped off when I come in for service.
Salesman Kevin was great. Smooth transaction. Will shop there again and refer friends to the dealership. All around was a very nice transaction. Even delivered the car.
Aquila Evans went above and beyond with her excellent handling of a problem with my car.. she is fabulous and caring and helpful and fast
I like the people to work there ! Love my car satisfied . They do a awesome job I will recommend Thank you some much, it’s definitely worth considering.
We were 5 hrs from home & there for the Celine Dion concert. After a tight turn on a corner & ripping a hole on the side of the tire, we went to Sam’s. Not a tire in stock that fit my MDX. Then called Boardwalk Acura & voila! Immediately got us up & running with great service, best price & a smile! Thanks for making our return trip uneventful & most of all SAFE!
