    I didn't. Original battery and when the time comes to replace it, I will do it myself. Weren't you looking to replace your battery 6 months ago?

    There are plenty of reports of people using Toyota. You just need to search through the (Gen 2) forums to find their threads.

    'a new Toyota hybrid battery that is installed by the dealer'= has a 3 year warranty, the 3 year warranty, is to encourage you to have it installed at the dealer

    Did it a few weeks ago at my Lincolnwood dealer, near Chicago. Things went well, took an extra half day for some unknown reason (guessing they didn't order the part until I gave them the keys to my car). Included a nice new rental car. And a car wash. $1700 for genuine Toyota battery plus $445 for all labor, taxes and fees. Love having Toyota's three year, nationwide warranty--rather than worry about the cranky seller in Colorado.

    So you invested=$2145.00,for a Brand New ''INSTALLED'' Toyota Prius Hybrid battery
    With proper maintenance ,your Prius should go at least 10 more years
