Interstate battery weathers the winters
Cold weather can get pretty harsh for your garden, your pets and your car battery.
The winters in Collingswood, N.J., where the average temperatures are below freezing for four months of the year, separate the powerhouses from the pushovers.
New Jersey resident Billy Carroll has kept watch over the Interstate® battery in his 1999 Chevrolet Silverado. After all, it has lasted eight years, about three years longer than the label showed. It has also weathered some pretty harsh weather.
The 2005 winter in the northeast beat the average low temperatures for more than three months. In 2010, blizzards broke snowfall records and killed electricity to 90,000 residents in southern New Jersey. And in 2011, a fatal October snowstorm dropped more than 19 inches of snow on parts of the Garden State.
Even when the truck gave Billy some grief over the transmission, “the battery’s never let me down,” he told Interstate.
Billy’s Interstate battery will be nine years old in March – after one more winter. Stay warm, Billy!
