Hello KIA Owners:
I have a 2010 KIA Soul and need to have my battery replaced. I didnt think it was going to be a big deal to have the battery replaced. There is an AutoZone less than 1 mile from my house, so I checked their webiste and it said that they carry batteries for my model year. When I took it over this morning they told me that they cannot replace the battery and that I should take it to the dealer or licensed mechanic because replacing batteries in KIAs are tricky.
I went home and decided to check out the web site for information about the KIA so I would have a better understanding of what he meant before searching out another place to replace my battery. I have been able to locate bits and pieces, but would like help to be directed to a web site I can get all of the information. I would also appreciate info from anyone who has had similar problems having their battery replaced so that I that the mechanic I choose is not trying to hose hose me down when he tells me it is going to cost more to replace than usual.
Can anyone help?
