Battery Test and Replacement Service near Chicago, IL

Battery Test and Replacement Service near Chicago, IL

Visit Our Service Bay!

We at McGrath Acura of Morton Grove know how tedious servicing can be, especially when it appears to be something as big as a battery replacement. However, we are here to dissuade your worries by walking you through the different steps of how to get your car running like new again. Please contact our friendly representatives with any of your questions!

How Does My Car Battery Work?

If you are not an automotive expert, you might be wondering what role exactly your car’s battery plays. Similar to the one in your TV remote or phone, your battery starts up your vehicle and powers its electronics. It takes the chemical energy created by your powertrain and converts it into electricity, jolting your vehicle awake so that it can run. If your battery isn’t functioning properly, you might not be able to start your car!

Timeline and Warning Signs

If this is the case, you might find yourself stranded on the road, needing a jump start from another driver. However, before it gets to that point, we recommend watching out for other warning signs that can let you know you might need a new component. First, watch out for any strange smells or noises coming out of the hood, since this is where your battery is located. The smell of sulfur or the sound of clicking are especially suspect. Next, if you simply want to pop open your hood and check your battery for yourself, you can! If you find that it is leaking and appears bloated, then that is a surefire sign that you need to visit our Service Department right away for a replacement.

Replacement

Before you come in, you can set up an appointment with our online scheduling tool. During your visit, our technicians will begin with a complimentary Multi-Point Inspection that can tell them how all of the main parts in your vehicle are functioning. Then, they’ll run an electrical system test on your battery and determine if it needs replacing or not. If it does, our onsite Parts Department can provide assistance by looking at their stocked inventory for a suitable substitute. Then, they will work on swapping out the components. To make your servicing worthwhile, every single maintenance appointment comes with a complimentary car wash, and a loaner car if you want to keep going about your day!

For convenient battery test and replacement service near Chicago, IL, visit our team at McGrath Acura of Morton Grove! We look forward to assisting you today.

Best car buying experience by far! We worked with Thomas J. from sales at McGrath Acura and I would highly recommend him. He was very professional, knowledgeable and was able to get us a great deal on an MDX. I also want to acknowledge Reny B., the sales manager, as he was very honest with us and made the deal happen. I would 100% recommend McGrath Acura in Morton Grove.

As a recent nursing school graduate, I was ready to buy a car but was skeptical to buy a new car because of fear of being taken advantage of by dealerships. I met with Reny who is the general manager, Ray who is the sales manager, Jay the used car manager, Anthony who is the sales associate and Aimee who was the finance manager. I mentioned all their names because they all made me feel so comfortable in the car buying experience and not once did they make feel pressured to buy a car just to make a quota. I was not even aware of a first responder and recent college grad discount that applied to lower my monthly payment, that’s how great of a service I received. Amiee spent so much time with me to break down my contract and never pressured me to sign. Anthony showed me all the features of the car and is a great conversation starter, he wasn’t focused on making the sale but rather focused on me being comfortable in the car. Reny and Ray were spent additional time with me to find different methods to lower my monthly payment and even encouraged me to take some time and speak with my parents before signing the contract and were so thankful for me being a first responder. Overall, I never thought I would receive this type of treatment buying a new car, I left with the car I wanted, with a great deal and left feeling treated like an individual rather than a number. I will definitely come back to Mcgarth Acura for any future car buying and will recommend them to my family and friends. Thank you all so much for a great car buying experience.

We actually bought a used F150. It was the truck we had traded in just 18 months earlier. My husband missed the truck, regretted ever getting rid of it, found it, and now it sits in the driveway once again! We live 4 hours north of the dealership and my husband is overseas with the Army at the moment, so I handled most of the deal with my husband on FaceTime and through email. We ran into some snags with this whole situation, then the whole COVID-19 took over, so it turned into 2 months of trying to get this finished. With my health being like it is, I am not able to leave the house during this COVID nonsense, which has made it all the more challenging. After a lot of going back and forth, Reny finally volunteered to bring the truck we bought up here to me and take the truck we traded in back down with them. He was very respectful and kind during this whole process and worked hard to make it happen. Once they got here with the truck, they wiped it all down with disinfectant, even the door handles on the outside! So with gloves and masks, we finished up the paperwork and finished the deal!! Thank you specifically to Reny for making a special exception to policy for my health to finish this deal!!

They had what we wanted (2020 RDX ASpec Silver) and they were very willing to make a solid deal. Very low pressure sales tactics so don’t be intimidated with a new or used car purchase at McGrath Acura of Morton Grove. Ask for Tom Jackolin in sales and he’ll take care of you! And Reny, thank you for the oil changes and the backpack for my daughter! :)

Had a wonderful experience at McGrath after having a friend recommended coming here when I mentioned needing to get the tires on our RAV4 rotated. She had gotten her car serviced here before (also not a Honda) and had a good experience so I figured I would give it a shot as well. Nick was our technician and he provided prompt and professional service. Sometimes I worry about going certain places to get cars serviced because I don't know much about car maintenance and am always worried about overpaying or buying services and products that aren't necessary. I felt like Nick understood my concerns and our interaction was very personable and zero-pressure. After an oil change and a tire rotation, she is driving very smoothly again (nice and clean inside and out as well) and I couldn't be happier with the service I received. Nick also checked out the rest of the car and answered a few questions I had. You could tell he was not only passionate and knowledgeable about cars, but also cared about making sure his customers felt confident they were getting the best service possible. I would feel confident about bringing the car back for service here again, especially with Nick!

I moved to Chicago from Wisconsin 2 years ago and brought my Honda Insight along. After trying a handful of Honda dealerships for service, I've always left feeling a bit lackluster. I was driving past McGrath Acura one day and my car was due for an oil change, so I figured why not? Acuras and Honda's are one and the same. I stopped in without an appointment and Paul promptly greeted me. My car went in for an oil change and I went to their nice waiting area which has free cookies (score!) After 10 minutes, Paul came back to recommend to me that my car's tires should be rotated and my third brake light bulb went out. I agreed and he had them done. After only another 20 minutes my car was done and went through the wash, plus they vacuumed my interior too! I met the tech Nick who worked on my Insight and thanked him, which is when I remembered that my friend bought me some LED bulbs for my car as a birthday present. Nick put the bulbs in and it made my car look so much newer and have better visibility at night, at no charge. My car has been running excellent and I've found my new go-to place for affordable, fast and thorough service, thank you Nick, Paul, and the team at McGrath Acura!

I have taken my car to this dealer for all of the maintenance. Last time I took the car in a mechanic Nick helped me out. He changed my front brakes in no time and he gave great advice about things I should expect to upkeep in the next year. No sales no pushing just honest advice. I very much appreciate a mechanic who cares about cars. Nick was not only very helpful but fast and knows a lot about Acuras. Thank you Nick.

Really grateful for the McGrath Acura team for taking such good care of my car and me--especially my technician Nick! Because of my lack of knowledge when it comes to cars and car maintenance overall, getting my car serviced is a very intimidating task for me. I've always disliked feeling pressured into services or repairs that I didn't initially come into shops for--always unsure if people are just trying to upsell or if my car genuinely needs the extra work. I moved to Chicago two years ago, but the idea of bringing my car to a shop has been so intimidating that any time I do need servicing, I wait until my next trip back home to Cincinnati, where I can take it to my family's usual mechanic. However, that wasn't something feasible for me recently. My car needed servicing ASAP. Per a friend's recommendation, I brought it to McGrath Acura despite owning a Hyundai Sonata. What I appreciated most was Nick really took the time to talk me through exactly what needed to be done and explaining things as thoroughly as possible, all unprompted. The level of care and detail he took to explaining everything and ensuring I was a happy customer was quite impressive. This was the first time a technician had been so personable and accommodating! What really impressed me was my experience when he noticed my brake pads were wearing a bit thin during the checkup. He took the time to look into it and then assured me it wasn't something I needed right then and there. Nick told me that in a couple months when my brake pads would need changing, he would be happy to work on them if I wanted. However, if I wanted to go elsewhere, he had written down exactly all the services I would need, including the brake pad replacement. I felt really appreciative that he didn't make me feel like it was something I had to worry about immediately and that once that time came, I would be well-aware of all the exact information needed to get things done. There was no pressure or intimidation to come back to him or this dealership specifically either, which made me feel like I could really trust him as a technician! If all the technicians at McGrath Acura are as great as Nick, then I really applaud them for their impeccable team. My Sonata drives excellent now, and in two months when it's time to change my brake pads, I'll definitely be coming back to McGrath Acura!

My car needed an oil change and the wheels rotated. I was also worried that one of my tires had a hole it. I had the fortune of getting N. Nguyen for my service specialist. He performed my oils change and wheel rotation without any errors. He also was able to run a test and confirm that there was not a hole in the tire. To top it off, when he returned the car to me, he had the whole car washed and the inside cleaned! A+ service. I will only trust McGrath Acura in Morton Grove from now on.

I found my RDX on the internet and was contacted by the internet sales department at McGrath Acura. I was emailed a quote for the total cost. When I got to the dealership, we were met by Tom Jackolin who helped with our test drive and questions. I showed him our on line quote and it was honored just as promised. The sales manager Remy Benyamin wrote up our contract with no add ons. Our entire purchase was seamless and happened in under 2 hours. Tom went over all the whistles and bells in our new car. Great dealership and employees. Would definitely purchase through them again.
