Any recommendation? Toyota dealer asking $200 for a new battery for my Highlander.

I've always used the Sears Diehard automotive batteries, and you can order one and have it shipped directly to your home and you can install it yourself. Or go to one of the area Sears Automotive stores. As far as other options, I've always had good service at the Hook Tire store.

By the way, the last battery I bought, which was a Sears Diehard Platinum that I ordered online and had shipped to me, was close to $200.

Advanced Auto, AutoZone, Pep Boys, most of these type of stores will install the battery for free. I would call around and make sure they have your battery in stock first.

Just go to Autozone they will install it no charge plus the cost of the battery will be under 100. You can go to autozone.com to check prices on your particular battery!!!

$200?!--that's ridiculous. I like Griffin Tire--should be one not too far from you. There is one in Concord and several other locations. Walmart also has batteries and an auto center.....Sears maybe...

If you want to know where not to go, DM me. A certain non-dealer place put a new battery in my Jetta and it wound up costing me a bunch of money because the throttle body presets were lost (according to the dealer).
