Buying a Replacement Battery for Kia Sorento

Your Sorento doesn't have an expiration date, but its battery does. The average car battery lasts three to five years. Check your battery regularly and replace it as needed so it doesn’t leave you and your Kia Sorento stranded. Watch for signs that your current battery is getting too old or too weak. A slow engine crank, a blinking battery or check engine light, bloated battery case, corrosion-covered posts, and subpar electrical performance may all indicate that your battery is waving goodbye.

  • What is the white, crusty stuff around my Sorento’s battery post? A chemical reaction between battery acid and the air can cause a white, crusty buildup to form on the terminals of your Sorento car battery. This buildup — known as corrosion — can impede the flow of electricity and cause a range of issues, from poor performance to premature battery failure.
  • What do I do about corrosion on my Sorento car battery? You can help prevent or get rid of corrosion by regularly inspecting and cleaning your battery terminals. Before cleaning your battery, see your Sorento owner's manual to learn how to disconnect the battery cables. After disconnecting the cables, use a mixture of water and baking soda, a wire brush, and a rag to carefully clean the terminals.
