    It was 1700 in cali almost double now which is ludacris.

    I hope so... I never recommended those remanufactured batteries even with lifetime warranty, nor would run one on my car, but it looks very appealing to many now, too bad one of those companies was sold to LKQ, now would be a perfect time to compete with an oem battery thats retailing for over 3 grand, still dont get how many people went with a reman battery for 1500 when a new one from toyota retailed for 1700.

    That price might include the core deposit, or an overpriced dealer. 1714.48 + tax + 1350 core deposit in Tracy.

    Probably supply issue as I was shopping for a battery for a long time now and they were the same price as the one above, but recently jumped to over 3k. Good to know Tracy still had them at a good price, looks like ill be making the trip when time comes.

    ty for checking
