Your Century Car Battery Warranty Does Not Cover The Following
- Failure of the motorist to show a receipt as proof of purchase.
- Leaving your vehicle idle without driving for long periods at a time. This eventually leads to a state known as “battery acid stratification”, caused by the insufficient charge being applied by the vehicle’s alternator.
- The car battery is no longer covered because the warranty period has already expired.
- The battery had not been correctly installed and damaged as a result.
- The battery was damaged or discharged due to faulty or careless handling and negligence.
- The battery was misused for an application the manufacturer considers inappropriate and unsuitable.
- The external area is severely damaged or in poor physical condition.
- The battery was either under or overcharged.
- The battery was not maintained and cared for properly, or an additive added to the acid electrolyte solution.
- Transportation costs to and from the warranty location.
Take note of the early warning signs of battery failure within your warranty period
It’s also important to be aware of early warning signs of battery failure. If the vehicle starts more slowly than normal, for example, it may be that a vehicle battery is showing signs of wear and tear. You might want to contact Car Battery Australia or your nearest dealer for a battery test “free of charge”, especially if it’s within your car battery warranty cover period.
In some cases, motorists that experienced a “so-called” faulty automotive battery, simply had a battery that was discharged. It may be necessary to check the electrical system of the vehicle to eliminate other causes. From our experience though, if a battery is between 3 and 4 years old, its life-cycles are close to expiring.
