No.

24 and 27 are LH.

24R/F and 27R/F are RH

Hmm, they are called stealership for a reason. But seriously, I may have to stop by after work and see if they made a mistake last time.

Edit: Just googled a bit and you are right. Toyota P/N 00544-27F60-710 is anywhere from $80-$106 online in Toyota Of Dallas for example. I will definitely go to to dealer tonight and see what they have to say.

Walmart batteries are fine. Photocopy your receipt. The original, heat won't last, and Walmart won't honor the warranty without it.

Interstate is my choice, I put one of those in my mazda after its battery gracefully died after 5 years, and never had any starting issues after that.

I put a $60 wally-world battery in my wife's 2004 corolla about 3 years ago and its still running strong. In fact once I fixed her intake manifold gasket issue (improperly designed Toyota gasket caused a serious vacuum leak which lead to severe sputtering at cold temperatures), which helped ruled out the charging system as a problem I couldn't be happier with the starting and charge retention performance of that battery.

I have a WalWorld battery in my diesel tractor/loader and have had no problems. They last about four years in the worst battery environment possible. It sits up front of the radiator, is exposed to a lot of vibration and shocks, undergoes significant discharges during the winter heating the glow plugs and cranking the cold diesel and sits for weeks unused.

You could probably do a search on the difference between the F and N suffixes.

^ Thanks

Maybe N suffix stands for narrow? According to page 3 of this pdf...

Definitely check the dealership again. I just purchased a new Toyota battery from my dealer for my '07 4Runner and it was roughly $90.

I have a Walmart Battery in the Ridgeline and it is fine...Honda wanted twice the $$ while both Advanced and Autozone only had their top of the line in stock...

Tacoma is an '02 and only has had 2 battery's..OEM for 6 years and a Duralast since...Not bad for New England ..

I could not find neither 24F or 27F in my local Costco. It was the first place I went to check.

We just went with a AAA battery when ours died. We got nearly stranded in Yosemite a couple years ago, so the roadside service(and general AAA awesomeness) anywhere is what sold me. 27F - 100$

CAA have the same deal?

The worst luck in batteries was the Champion brand from Sams, there has been an Everlast in my 68 dodge for 6 years now, I usually get them from the local autoparts store and get the freshest one I can find.
