    I think I might have to buy a replacement for the big battery - cheaper than a new car. But, there seem to be several websites that recondition batteries. Looking for recent experiences with what is out there. Also, I can buy reconditioned Gen 2 cells, Reconditioned Gen 3 cells, or new Gen 2 cells. Which type to buy? Also, anyone have any experience with the Prolong Battery System to extend the life of the battery?

    Do Gen 3 work better than Gen 2?
