    2015 HYBRID 12v Battery replacement, Help please

    Dealer says my regular 12V battery needs to be replaced.

    They want 500 for it. I think they are nutz.. Does anyone know what the deal is , and is there an acceptable aftermarket battery.

    Walmart is a life saver for batteries. Usually have them in stock. Make sure you get the correct type though!
