Car Battery Replacement & Electrical System Repair

At Shell Annandale Service, we understand the frustration that comes with a weak or dead battery. Starting your day with a malfunctioning battery is never ideal. That’s why we highly recommend being proactive with your vehicle’s battery replacement. The average car battery lasts 4 to 5 years, and waiting until it completely dies can leave you stranded on the side of the road.

Our team of experienced technicians specializes in auto battery replacement and will ensure that your vehicle’s power stays alive with a dependable Interstate Battery. Your car’s electrical system operates various essential features, such as the windshield wipers, radio, headlights, windows, and even charging your cell phone. The car battery, starter, and alternator are the three primary components of the starting and charging systems, and it’s crucial that these components are in good working order.

When you bring your vehicle to us for battery replacement, we’ll perform a thorough inspection of your battery, starter, and alternator to ensure they are functioning correctly. Our goal is to keep your vehicle running smoothly, and we’ll only recommend a battery replacement if it’s necessary. With our team of experienced technicians and high-quality Interstate Batteries, you can rest assured that you’ll have a reliable power source for your vehicle.

Here are some signs that your electrical system may be failing:

  • Trouble starting your engine or extended cranking time
  • Battery warning light illuminates in the dashboard
  • Dim headlights
  • The smell of melting plastic
  • Missing or blown fuses
  • Loss of accessory power

Customer Testimonials

This shell is reasonably priced and well kept. However the cashier lady is rude and inconsiderate. I just wanted to ask a simply question and she kept herself busy doing nothing. I ended up asking it from the service guy and he was much help and nice person.

I will look forward to the price and the customer service itself

Gassing up and got a love the Giant fuel rewards cuz I save 60cents/per gallon, whoop whoop! The service station and it’s operations staff are very nice and helpful.

I come here often and I thought I reviewed them before but either I didn’t or I reviewed the wrong shell,
lol. This one can be tricky to get into from from the road & it looks like an older, beat up station but it does look like redoing it.

This one is conveniently located in Annandale off Little River Turnpike & the best thing about it is how large is it. The fuel pumps are in such a big area that it is super easy to get in and out. A new feature they have as you  start fueling is a little computer screen that plays advertisements to keep you company while you pump, lol.

They have air ($1.50 cash for 3 min or a calibrated air pump for $1.50 cash or $1.75 credit card), vacuums, food mart service center, & they sell propane & ice. I chose the calibrating one but it would not let me calibrate it to what I wanted/needed & I was stuck with the preset psi so that’s a bummer.

It says on the Yelp site that they are closed today, Sunday, but they are very much open!

Always competitive gas prices usually the lowest in town wich is great. The staff are the usual friendly faces so we have built a relationship. The owner Jay knows his stuff, he is always there to help in anyway possible. Very smart and quick to get the parts or work you need done. I recommend anyone who needs gas or some type of vehicle repair to visit the annandale shell gas station. You are treated with the utmost care and respect.

I’ve been taking my vehicles to Jay for about 4 years now with great service each and every time.  They are always accommodating to my challenging schedule which comes in very handy.  I highly recommend these guys for honest service.

Current management is great.  They will tell you honestly anything that they find wrong with your car and then let you know how urgent it is to fix it.  They allow people to make appointments so that you don’t have to leave your car indefinitely if it isn’t absolutely necessary.  I have an older car so they will often give me a few price/quality options for parts and then let me choose what I think the best investment is. Good quality work at a fair price.  Highly recommended!

Not only does this service station keep the price of of their gasoline at a very competitive level (They are more often than not priced lower than the “competition”) but the service department came through for me when I needed help quickly. My left front tire had a screw in it and I had no choice but to drive on it since it began as a very slow leak. The air began leaking at a more rapid pace and I had a docotor’s appointment in Silver Spring Md. lesss than an hour hour away during the 495 rush hour(s). All my tire required was to have the screw removed and a plug put in it’s place to stop the air from leaking and the tech. recognized that emmediately. Three minutes later and at a very fair price I was on my way. I buy my gas at Annandale Shell as much as possible not only for the price (Giant gas reward points really come in handy!) but also for the fact that they helped me out when I needed it. If you find yourself anywhere near the Little River Turnpike exit on 495 in Annandale Va. and need gas or service, I highly reccomend Annandale Shell! High quality gas at a great price and quality service with a smile!

I love coming to this Shell because the owner and his assistant are always responsive. They give fair estimates; I have been getting my car checked by the owner, Jay  and his mechanics for several years now. They will inform you of what needs to be done and treat you fairly.

So happy to find a trustworthy place to take my car. Jay and his staff are the best! They give you excellent service. Highly recommended!

I have been used this place for years and they are always fully booked. The reason is when I ask something, they are honestly responded as it is. If certain service is not needed, they told me. When I bring performance part and ask them to install it, they do it by reasonable labor charge. Get there early, otherwise you may have to wait for hours due to a lot of works in line.

My brake light came on.  I was looking for someplace close to home so when the area coupons arrived I looked for vehicle repair places.  They were within walking distance of the house and I had a coupon (for brake work no less, which made me think it was an area upon which they focused).  Then, naturally, I checked Yelp.  They had 5 stars but only one review, although at least it was relatively recent.  & so, I decided to give them a try.

We dropped it off on Monday morning.  They said it was ready before the end of the day.  We had plans Monday night but went to get it Tuesday morning.  The price was less than I had expected and I was able to use the coupon.  I went to my vehicle turned the key and much to my shagrin the screen flashed “check brake lining” and the brake light was still on.  I was NOT happy.  The garage guy who was there was not helpful, at all.

We waited for the lead mechanic to come in since he said he would get in at 8am.  He looked at the light, put the vehicle up and gave it a look.  He apologized for not having taken a look before we were told it was ready and, respecting our schedules, suggested he would assess the situation and be in contact.  He defused me pretty quickly by simply being willing to admit he had dropped the ball.

When he called my husband with an update a couple of hours later the vehicle was ready, there was no longer a brake related warning, and there was no additional charge.

We will probably try them again and I am hopeful that I will become a fan…
