When the #2 and #3 batteries in that car were almost new, the car did hesitate to start after two weeks of non use...at least once with each of them. However, that might not be a fair comparison as those were both series 26R batteries, rather than series 35.

Started it last night. This time it was a bit over 3 weeks. Started just as strong as it did the last time.....with 2 weeks of 'sitting' at that point.

I'm looking at replacing the OEM battery in my 07. One of the batteries I'm looking at is the Motomaster Eliminator AGM from Canadian Tire. In my research, I've come across people saying that the CT batteries are crap, though the ratings on their own website is good. I've also read that exide made batteries aren't that great either. Anyone have any opinions on this particular battery or any exide made ones?

Pro tip, if your battery dies go to advanceautoparts.com, choose your battery (I chose the autocraft 575 CCA) 2 yr replacement + the regular month prorated program.

At checkout chose local pick up and enter TRT41 as coupon code and save $40. With taxes my battery ended up costing $77.

This is what I got http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/a...hTerm=battery#

good deal

The Napa battery is slightly bigger and is the correct size for this car. It also has better reserve capacity, I assume due to the larger size. But $77 bucks is a good deal.

thats true but there is no Napa in PR. The battery came with a plastic bracket that helps secure the battery using the OEM holder. I could have gone even cheaper with the 525 CCA model but got the 575 for peace of mind.

Optima red top 720cca. One spacer used for factory height. Paid $143 for it july 2013 from advanced auto. Pricey but I commute 49miles to work and 49 home. Wanted a very reliable battery. So far so good.

Necro thread but i just started having issues with my 07 yaris being sluggish to start. Had to use the booster pack a few weeks ago and put a good overnight charge on it last week. Well, today it is back to being sluggish so i decided to get a new one.

Parts store has given me a 26r and i will try installing it tonight to see if it fits.

Just wanted to say that this 07 was still on it's OEM Panasonic 55d23L MF battery. Over 200,000km and 13 years!!!

I would love to even see half of that in this new one.

That's impressive!

My GF's car was starting to be sluggish - and in an effort to keep trying my luck for what, another 2-3wks? I went ahead and got a new one.

700 CCA, as this thing sits outside (no garage at her place). Years ago, I started fitting on battery blankets I find in my buddy's scrap (battery) pile. So I installed one of those off a Ford of some sort... :)

FWIW I use the EverStart Maxx 35 . In 2014 I replaced the original and at the time, the warranty was 5yrs but that has since changed since to 3 yr replacement. They did away with the pro-rating of the extra two years.
I replaced it last month with another EverStart Maxx just because of age.
