Top Riviera Car Battery Questions

Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care for answers to all your car battery questions. If you have a Riviera-specific battery question, visit your nearest store. Our expert techs have the answers you need.

  • Why won’t my Riviera battery hold a charge? A car battery that needs to be jump-started every time is as good as dead. It may be getting old. Or, you may have been leaving your car doors ajar and the lights on overnight. Stop in for a free battery check at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to learn more about the state of your battery.
  • What happens to my old Riviera battery? We recycle it, taking care of both your car and the Earth.

  • How long can I expect my car battery to last? You can usually get three to five years out of your car battery. However, battery type, how well you maintain your battery, and your driving habits can all affect your battery’s lifespan.
  • What is the white, crusty stuff around my Riviera’s battery post? The white, flaky stuff that can build up around your Riviera’s battery terminals is known as corrosion. Acid leaking from your vehicle’s battery post can have a chemical reaction with the air, leading to an accumulation of the white, powdery substance over time. Corrosion can affect the flow of electricity between your battery and the electrical system in your Riviera, possibly causing issues with electrical performance and starting. If left unaddressed for long enough, it may even cause your battery to prematurely fail.
  •  How do I clean corrosion off my Riviera vehicle battery? Regularly inspect the terminals and clean them with a mixture of baking soda and water, a wire brush, and a rag. Disconnect the battery cables before cleaning to help avoid the risk of electrical shock. Always reference and follow the instructions in your vehicle owner’s manual prior to disconnecting the battery cables.
