You may be familiar with that sound. You know the one I'm talking about. That slow arrrough-arrrough-arrrough sound your car makes when it doesn't want to start and then it gets slower and slower and slower. . .

Yup, the battery is coming to the end of its life.

Don't be the one caught on Facebook with your cars hood up this winter because you didn't take the time to have it checked.

On Thursday (December 21), the first day of winter, AAA of South Dakota will do a free battery check of anyone stopping by at their 49th Street and Louise Avenue location in Sioux Falls.

All drivers are invited to stop by AAA in Sioux Falls for a FREE battery, tire and fluid inspections from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM.

You can enjoy holiday refreshments and register to win a free emergency car kit from AAA. Recipes for non-alcoholic party drink options will be available to encourage responsible party hosting and safe ride planning.
