    I got quoted on a Toyota 12V battery at 205.65 in Fremont, CA That sound about right?

    Most places want around $240, so yes a good price. And, IMHO, the 12v from the dealership is the way to go. My original lasted nearly eight years. The Toyota OEM replacement -- $200 -- was on year seven or so when I sold the car and was still strong.

    Just go to Walmart and get whatever battery they carry or maybe Costco has it. Don't get it from the stealership.

    It’s hard to beat OEM. I replaced the original in 2013 with OEM, replaced it in 2022 and it was still working. I figured 9 years was pushing it far enough, maybe could’ve gone longer.
