    I would not want to pay the freight from Florida to California especially when item was originally sourced from west coast port. Could be hundreds of dollars for one unit shipping not to mention core charge return.
    Start checking closer to home and use data you have on prices to negotiate.

    Just under $2800 charge pending on my credit card (including core charge), but didn't get any confirmation email and now the product page states "this product is no longer available". I hope they honor the purchase.

    Was that just now you bought yours? I haven't seen any in stock since checking since this morning, I assume the Toyota website should check all inventory of every dealer.

    I placed the order yesterday. I also checked all GA dealers and some NC dealers and all showing "this product is no longer available". Probably more likely that they were never in stock or they are refusing to let them go for the advertised price.

    For California rule out Redlands Toyota. The battery is 2775 from them of course that’s for a 2010.

    Did anyone actually get a battery shipped to them for the ~$1330 price? I saw that price earlier during the parts sale, but from what I saw on the dealership sites, it was local pickup only.

    Yes you call it in to your local dealer order it through the web your credit cards held up for near $3,00 0 when your core is cleared with the parts department your total spending price will be I don't know man under 1440 I think I didn't see the 1330 price that must have just popped up somewhere we paid like I don't know 14 2014 40 after all above things happened and was met so over 1360 and wife said 1360 so maybe it was 1330 and we paid $30 more in tax than you're paying there I don't know but was something like that so we paid that price yes or within $30 of that price or something and this was just like 168 days ago or something
