It's the dead of winter, snow on the ground and you're late for work. Why? Because you didn't notice all the signs that it was time to replace your Kia's battery. The battery is as crucial a component of your car as petrol/diesel is, because without the battery, nothing will work; the engine won't start, and even the heating and radio won’t be able to blaze into action. So why take the chance? If your Kia is a few years old, maybe it's time to replace the battery. If your car struggles to start on colder mornings (when the battery is working below its optimum temperature), or has trouble with the strain of your in-car gadgets, it might be time to think about a replacement.
A cheap replacement battery will cost between £50-£70, but at a 2-3 year life expectancy, it could be worth your while investing in a higher end battery. At upwards of £100, a good quality battery might not seem worth your while in the short term, but in the long term it is a brilliant investment. With a 5-6 year life expectancy, a good quality battery will be sure to keep your Kia's engine roaring into life, and its radio blaring for years to come.
If your battery isn't up to standard, it could let your down some time soon. Being stranded in the driveway on the way to work or school isn't a good thought, but worse still is the thought of being stranded somewhere away from home with a car that won't start, and headlights and heating that don't have the juice to kick into action. So if you sense your battery is not performing its best, why not replace it today? It could be the best decision you've ever made to keep your Kia humming away.
