Bring your 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 718 Boxster. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 718 Boxster may need a replacement battery sooner.

Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Porsche 718 Boxster could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
