Buying a Replacement Battery for Kia Spectra

Your Spectra 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 Spectra stranded. Watch for signs that your current battery is getting too old or too weak. A slow engine crank, an illuminated battery or check engine light, bloated battery case, corroded battery posts, or dim headlights can all signal that your battery is on its last leg.
