Buy the Right Battery for Your Kia Optima

Sadly, your Kia Optima won't last forever. Neither will its battery. The average car battery lasts three to five years. Don’t get stranded by your Optima’s car battery. Replace it regularly instead! Watch for signs that your current battery is getting too old or too weak. A slow engine crank, an illuminated check engine light or battery signal, swollen battery case, corrosion-covered posts, or dim headlights can all be signs that your battery is waving goodbye.
