The battery is a vital component of every vehicle. It is responsible for powering all of the electrical systems in your vehicle as well as creating the spark from the ignition that gets your engine running. Without the battery, your vehicle would be useless. That is why if something goes wrong with your battery, it is critical that you have the issue resolved as quickly as possible to get you back on the road as soon as possible.

Also, if you live somewhere with extreme temperatures, for example, somewhere with sub-zero winters and/or 100+ degree summers, your battery can take on a lot of stress. You may find yourself with a dead battery more frequently than people who live somewhere with a more mild climate.
