    Does anyone have experience with the Super Start Platinum 12V battery from O’reilly Auto Parts? It’s the only battery I can get locally that claims to fit the C. EB124DC3-5186-492A-8E0E-B487343FDB75.png

    For $199 Super Start Platinum I would go to the dealer for the OEM for $215 here in SoCal.

    i have had the Super Start 12v battery in my Prius for almost 6 years. A few months ago I went to a AAA travel show (just before covid hit). They were doing free battery checks, so I had them check mine. They said it was very healthy, should last at least several more years.

    So, I would recommend it. They often offer discount coupons on their web site.

    At a price similar to the OEM, there is no good reason to think that it won't be just as good.
    Might even be made in the same factory.

    I just ordered one to replace original (still working fine) so we will see how it pans out.
