My Kia is 2014 GDI. The dealer said that this model requires a special battery because the case it sits in. They told me that this battery is over 300 dollars. Is this true or are they trying to rip me off?

It's a AGM battery, but nothing special as to where the battery is placed so they can be replaced with a flooded battery with similar dimensions/rating.

Nothing special really. You can get replacement batteries at places like Walmart even. You want to purchase a Group type 124R. That's the key right there, group 124R. Good luck!

Just go to Costco and get yourself a standard battery replacement for under $100 with warranty.
