Buying a Replacement Battery for Kia Sportage

Sadly, your Kia Sportage won't last forever. Neither will its battery. 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 Sportage stranded. Pay attention to clues that your battery is on its way out. A sluggish engine start, an illuminated check engine light or battery signal, swollen battery case, corrosion-covered posts, or faded headlights can all signal that your battery is on its last leg.
