I will have had my '09 Taco 5 years in October. It still has the original battery in it. I has never failed to start but on the first cold start in the morning it seems to drag just a tad but ok the rest of the day.
I am considering going ahead and changing it out and not wait until is leaves me stuck some where. I don't recall the posted battery life. Am I being overlly concerned? An option is carrying around my jumpstart unit and let it go until it dies. My dealership checks the battery at each oil change and has not mentioned any issues.
I recently recieved a coupon from my dealer for a replacement battery. It doesn't give any specs and only says it is a TrueStart high reserve capacity with an 84 month warranty. Anyone know anything about this battery or would I do as well going to a parts store and getting one of theirs. The dealer wants $89.99 for that battery. I haven'g bought a battery in years so I don't have a clue what current prices are.
Any input would be appreciated.
