Buy the Right Battery for Your Kia Rio

Your Rio doesn't have an expiration date, but its battery does. Generally, car batteries last from three to five years. Check your battery regularly and replace it as needed so it doesn’t leave you and your Kia Rio stranded. Watch for signs that your current battery is getting too old or too weak. A sluggish engine start, an illuminated check engine light or battery signal, swollen battery case, corrosion-covered posts, or dim headlights may all indicate that your battery is on its last leg.
