Read the owners manual to see what it says about jump starting.


Any car with a battery can be jump started. But if you keep your battery in good condition, replace it often when it's low on a charge and have roadside assistance, then no, you don't have to carry them around. But maybe keep them to help someone else start their car? Up to you.
