Before we head on to the tips remember a very important point. A car’s battery is full of toxic chemicals, when the battery dies, you need to revive the battery so that your car starts to work, however, at times even jumper cables give up. These tips will help you restore life back in to your battery!

Tip #1- Always Park in your garage, Under a Shade, or in a Cover

This tip is best for your Mazda6’s battery, especially during the winters. If your car stands outside, the most predictable and most likely thing to happen is that the chemicals in your battery will freeze. You will have to start your car either by starting the ignition try after try after try, or by using the jumpers.

However, both methods are bad of the battery as they decrease its life expectancy. This is why you should consider parking your car under a shade, in a cover or in the garage, so that the battery remains slightly warmer comparatively. Do not keep turning on the heater or the thermostat though, that will rust your brand new car.

Tip #2- Always Make sure your Battery is Clean

It is very important to keep your battery clean and in good shape if you want your car’s life expectancy to increase than what it normally would be. In order to do so, you must keep an eye out on the car’s battery, and every once in a while, you must clean it. Be careful of grease; do not let it build up on battery, the same goes for dirt particles and oxidation.

Tip #3- Always Insulate your Battery

If you do not have a garage with the facility of insulation, then you will have to insulate your battery now and then manually. This is one of the cheapest ways you can protect your battery from over-heating, and this is a great way to make sure that you do not get a major bill by your mechanic either.
