    We just had our 45k service done and they said my wife's battery CCAs are low, which I believe, but they wanted over $220 to replace the battery! They tried to tell her that not only are their batteries superior, but that the Santa Fe needs a different battery than the normal batteries you get at Sams or Auto Zone.

    Is there really anything special required for these cars, or am I relegated to paying a premium for a battery that should have lasted longer than 2 years and 3 mos?

    She has a Santa Fe Ultimate, btw.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, the battery should have lasted longer than two years.
    They should last around five or more years.

    Anything special about their battery??
    Nothing as far as I know.
    But, you should use a memory saver and be careful about the leads to not short them

    Good luck
