Replacing Battery for 2011 Toyota Sienna

On Friday, the car alarm went off and I didn’t know about it until someone notified me. The battery drained and I couldn’t start the engine. I asked someone to jumpstart for me. I left the engine running for ten minutes.

On Sunday, I couldn’t get it to start again; therefore, I needed another jumpstart. I drove for half an hour, shut off the engine, started again, and it worked fine. I didn’t want to take the chance in the winter; therefore, I bought a new battery from Advance Auto Parts. After installed the new one, I realized that the old battery is a Toyota TrueStart with a 84-month warranty. I only had it a little over 36 months. In retrospect, I could probably get more life out of it.

In any rate, I purchased an AutoCraft Platinum AGM Battery Group Size 24F, 710 CCA from Advance Auto Parts with a 3 year free replacement.

Total cost: $200
