What Does Your Vehicle's Alternator Do?

Your car battery lasts far longer than either your phone or laptop battery. Why is that? We here at Fox Kia in Grand Rapids are here to tell you why your vehicle's alternator is the key to answering that question.

An alternator generates electricity when your car is on and driving. This electricity is then used to recharge your car battery so that it is able to start your car the next time you go out for a drive. Most automotive experts agree that an alternator can last upwards of 150,000 miles or up to seven years, whichever of the two should come first.

If you are looking for a quality and inexpensive service team to replace your alternator or perform any other type of service on your vehicle, then be sure to give us a call or stop by our service center at Fox Kia in Grand Rapids today to schedule an appointment.
