Cost to own (battery replacement)

Asked by Dec 13, 2018 at 06:19 PM about the 2011 Kia Optima Hybrid EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm looking at a used hybrid vs gas Optima so the warranty will expire. I read that the battery will need to be replaced at some point and costs thousands to replace. Is this true and if so how much should I budget for? Seems like it cancels out the gas savings. Thanks!

Kudos on doing the math before you buy. You can Google the battery cost but it is hard to say when your car will need a new battery. Keep doing your research!
