Battery Test and Replacement Service in Des Moines, IA

Battery Test and Replacement Service in Des Moines, IA

Visit Kia of Des Moines!

When it comes to the most important parts inside your car, the battery is at the top of the list. This vital component in your system needs routine inspections and occasional replacements, so make sure to schedule your appointments with our team at Kia of Des Moines online!

Timeline

Your battery is the ever-important part that helps start up your car. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to complete any of your daily tasks or routine commutes. That’s why we recommend coming in to get an inspection twice a year just to make sure everything is still functional. In terms of replacement, you will likely need one every three to five years. This schedule can be affected by certain factors such as the climate you drive in, your driving style, and even your unique model type. For details on your specific vehicle, make sure to read your owner’s manual. With all other inquiries, feel free to use our online Ask a Tech form to get directly in touch with our technicians.

Warning Signs

There are certain signals you can look out for that will tell you if your battery might be experiencing problems. First and foremost, if your car seizes up and refuses to turn on, needing a jump start to get going again, that is a surefire sign that you need to drive into our maintenance bay right away. That means that your battery has fallen flat and will likely need an immediate replacement. Other, more subtle symptoms include if your engine is having trouble starting up, is making unusual noises, or is emitting a bad smell. Lastly, if you pop your hood and see that your battery looks bloated, it has been overworked and will need to be checked out by a professional.

Replacement Service

Our Service Department and Parts Department will work together to get your car running as good as new when you pay us a visit. First, our technicians will perform a cursory inspection to provide you with a diagnosis. If you do need a replacement, our parts staff will dig into their stocked inventory to find the ideal new battery. Then, it’s a simple matter of taking out your old one, cleaning out its terminal, and installing the new one. While we work, we invite you to relax in the comfort of our waiting room, or even run out to complete some errands. When you return, your vehicle will be ready for you!

Our friendly team can provide battery test and replacement service in Des Moines, IA! Contact us at Kia of Des Moines with any questions before your visit, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Wonderful spot to buy a car. Kamal Habhab helped me find the best 2019 Kia Forte. It has fantastic features that were explained perfectly and low miles with an even lower price. Couldn't ask for better service from everyone there and will definitely consider this place for future purchases. Kamal even drove me home in my new car and drove my old vehicle back for the trade in. Thank you Kamal☆ *elbow bump* you're the man☆☆

Kim Armstrong was the man who helped me and my father get a car for me. Not only did the car run well when test driving it, and too my hope will continue to do well for a while. But Kim is so kind and such an amazing listener and I feel truly tried to help us get what we needed. Being considerate when I called up to check on the cars status, and went so far as to say they would leave it in the back when it finished service (as it would have been most likely done close to closing time that day) till we headed up there the next opening day to check it out. I feel very grateful to have the car we got, and to have Kim as the person who helped us when we truly seemed interested. Even them being able to better accommodate a price that my father was looking for was very outstanding. I as well appreciate the ease of paper signing. Quickly letting me know what the paper meant and where i should sign, and even helping me get my plates registered when I had previously thought I’d done that. Thank you!

My wife and I were in the market for a new vehicle. The General Manager was quick to respond to my requests. He set me up with the New Car Sales Manager who treated us with a very fair offer on a Sportage SX. The day of the sale turned out wonderfully because it was also our 14th wedding anniversary. Kim, was the sales rep who assisted us during our many visits leading up to the purchase. He was kind, thoughtful and answered many questions we had. My wife and I plan to replace one of our other vehicles in approximately 2 years. We will definitely give KIA of Des Moines first crack at earning our business. Thank you all who assisted my wife and I with this purchase.

Bob, Steven, and everyone else made things easy and efficient. They found out what I wanted and didn’t try to steer me in a different direction. Presley (sp?) made the delivery of the vehicle excellent as well!

Kia of Des Moines did an excellent job in helping us get a new car. The customer service was great. Steve took care of us and was very knowledgeable about the Kia Optima. He also had a lot of information about Kia’s rebates and deals to help us get a better purchase in price. We were very please with the financial department as well as the loan officer. Thanks Kia for the amazing experience and will be seeing you all in the future.

We had a great experience with Jamie Collier, our sales representative. She was knowledgeable, professional and down to earth. She knew the answers to our questions about the 2020 Kia Soul. We didn't feel any pressure or feel rushed at all. She came in on her day off to finalize the sale and to make sure we had all of our questions or concerns answered. The final price was as negotiated so there were no surprises. Thanks again to Jamie, and everyone who helped us make our purchase a seamless and easy one including the owner who came in to personally to thank us for our purchase of one sweet little car that will surprise any buyer who has yet experienced owning a Kia Soul.

That was a very smooth, easy car deal (and I do a lot of them). The deal was done online and there were no games when I came in to complete the transaction. Easy peasy.
