Do I Need A New Battery?

When your car starts exhibiting signs of strain, it can be difficult finding out what exactly the problem is. We at Cumberland Kia put together this overview to let you know what signs you might find if you need a new battery, and how to get it replaced quickly and easily! Once you give it a read-through, visit our Service Department.

Car Battery

Allow us to explain what purpose exactly your car’s battery serves. It is responsible for converting the raw energy your powertrain creates into electricity in order to charge up your starter, which allows your car to turn on and run. Therefore, if your battery is not functioning properly, you might be in big trouble! That is why we recommend getting it checked out twice a year to ensure that it's still in good shape. You can set up an inspection easily with our online Schedule Appointment feature.

Warning Signs

If your battery is at the end of its lifespan, you might notice some symptoms telling you it’s time for a new one. Your car might take longer than usual to turn on, or emit strange noises as it does so. Strange smells are also something to note. Next, if you notice the electronics and lights in your vehicle malfunctioning, that could be a sign that something is wrong. Finally, you always have the opportunity to open up the hood of your vehicle yourself to check on the battery within. If it looks misshapen or is leaking acid, those are surefire signs that your car needs to be brought in right away to our service bay.

Replacement

Getting your battery replaced at Cumberland Kia isn’t a stressful process with our awesome service and parts teams! First, they will begin with an electrical system test that will diagnose whether or not you need a new component. If you do, they will work together to find an ideal substitute that will work well in your system. While they get to work swapping the two out, you can relax in our waiting room. We suggest that you take this time to peruse our Service Specials. We update them frequently to ensure that you always get the most bang for your buck. Before you know it, your ride will be like-new again!

If you were asking yourself the question, “Do I need a new battery?”, we hope you have your answer! Come see us at Cumberland Kia anytime to get your vehicle back into tip-top shape. See you soon.

Christy Herd and Andy Claborn were so good to us! Gave us a great trade in offer and a discount for my husband being a first responder! We had an issue where we didn’t want to lose our vehicle but needed the trade in for a trip (we needed the hitch). They allowed us to purchase our vehicle but keep our trade in until we returned from our trip in a week! We ended up deciding to not use the trade in on our trip but the fact they were letting us was amazing! We were in and out in less than 2 hours and we love our new (used) 2017 GMC Acadia!

Usually my experience is awesome but today was not to the excellent standard I am accustomed too. Arrived at 8:40 for an oil change and tire rotation. Asked the customer service gentleman if they could complete my car by 10:20. No problem I was told. At 10:10 I asked if he could check on it. He did. I got my car at 10.18 with much pushing. There didn’t appear to be any urgency by the first gentleman so I talked to Lucas. He rushed to assist me.

Cumberland Kia is a great place to buy a car! I drove an hour to buy my car here because they had the best price, and they beat my own financing which I didn’t think was possible. I definitely recommend them. Another thing worth mentioning is they don’t charge extra if you don’t use their financing like other dealers sometimes do.
