How Can I Get a Battery Test and Replacement?

There are a few important parts that every vehicle needs to run with top-notch efficiency. At the top of that list is its battery. However, just like the ones inside your phone or your TV remote, car batteries wear away over time and eventually need to be replaced. If you suspect that this might be happening to your vehicle, contact us at Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte today!

Warning Signs

If you’re not an automotive expert, you might be wondering what warning signs to look out for that could indicate a problem. There are several subtle signals to watch out for, such as if your car starts taking longer than usual to start up or emits a clicking noise while powering on. One unmistakable sign that your battery is falling flat is if it seizes up and needs a jump start from another ride to get it going again. Lastly, keep an eye on the electronics within your car. Your display screens, headlights, and interior lights are all connected to your battery, so if those start to glitch, then your system might be malfunctioning, too.

Timeline

There is also a general timeline that we recommend you follow. It is smart to get your battery checked about every three to five years. That is because at the three-year mark, it might start to exhibit some strain. By the time five years have passed, it will be time to check on the remaining lifespan of it. However, this amount of time can be affected by a number of different factors, such as your driving style, the climate you drive in, your specific model, and more. For specific information on your vehicle, make sure to read your owner’s manual. For all other questions, we have a handy online Ask a Tech form where you can submit your inquiries.

Test and Replacement

If you do decide to visit our service bay, you can do so after scheduling an appointment online, or by simply driving in unannounced. Either way, our team will get to work right away inspecting your system with an electrical system test. If this diagnostic reveals that you do need a new battery, then our in-house Parts Department can help. They will dig into their stocked inventory and find the ideal replacement. Then, it’s a simple process of taking out the old one, cleaning out its terminal, and installing the new one so your vehicle runs as good as new! While we work, we recommend relaxing in our waiting room and checking out our Service Specials. We update them frequently to save you as much money as possible on your maintenance.

So, if you were thinking, “How can I get a battery test and replacement?”, you now have your answer! Pay us a visit at Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte, and our friendly Service Department will help you during our accommodating hours.

Beyond grateful to my salesman, Doss. I’ve never received better service, not have I met someone as smart as him in terms of the car business. He explained to me all the numbers before any decision was made which is just what I want.

Fun facility. Bought a car in less than 3 hours. Buying with Gage is like being with a good friend. You feel comfortable and confident with your experience. Met with others for insurance, etc. All positive. Highly recommend. Love my Kia.

It was time to trade in my lease, I was ushered by Doss who also helped me on my previous lease. That really gave me more confidence in my decision since the trust was already there. The fact that they give you the same salesperson as always was very impressive because they go out of they’re way to make you feel comfortable, not just buy buy buy

Their Parts Department was great, but their service department and sales are quite lacking. A lot of hype for a basic car lot in my opinion.

Having absolutely no credit, I didnt expect to get approved at all, let alone have a salesman or finance manager put in the effort they did to get me the best deal possible! I'll look forward to doing business again with them in the future!

Salesman Ted Castelo made the buying of my first car a great experience. He was helpful throughout the whole process and put me into a car that was perfect for me. I went to a number of other dealerships before Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte but Kia really stood out to me.

I went to Kia just to see what options they may have for me. Pleasantly surprised at Gage’s sales approach. He was very patient in answering all of my questions and not once did I feel as though he was pressuring me into a sale. Gage did a great job and he is the only reason I left with a new Kia that day. Thank you for the refreshing car buying experience! If you need a Kia, ask if Gage is available to help. You will not be disappointed.

Always a great experience dealing with Billy's dealerships, (1 in the Cape, 2 from PC). Knowledge salespeople like Jordan Ray help make car buying quick and painless, while the Service Dept helps keep them in tip top shape.

Light, bright and designed for comfort while waiting. Snacks, coffee, hot chocolate and tea provided, big screen TVs & wifi with charging stations, local paper and a few magazines all to help pass the time. Or they will drive you to local shops or restaurant. The service center is great. I did buy a car here - the sales team is good but the financing department and process is grueling and time consuming; somewhat high pressure. I would consider buying or leasing a KIA again, and use this service center but would NOT Buy at this location again.

Felt respected, not abused.

The Kia dealership in Port Charlotte was only one dealership that had our interest. We spent days on the internet researching what was available locally, and I am so glad we went to Facillo first. Naieem and all the others were very understanding and worked diligently to get us the right car to fit our needs and budget. I truly appreciate the efforts they put in to accommodating us, and how Naieem now feels like family. I love my new used car, and will be returning when the time comes. The only suggestion is to Billy and the upper management, upgrade to the electronic paperless desk. This will not only save the environment, but cut the time it takes to wrap-up the deal.

We just bought a brand new 2020 Kia rio from here... The staff was friendly and awesome .. I'd definitely come back , pretty upset we didn't get any of the awesome deals that Kia frequently advertiesed like the gift card , we thought that buying just before Christmas we would get some incentive but at least we got a half decent deal on a car. So thanks and don't count on getting any incentives.
