^^^ Yes I agree. Scheduled for the week after the lease runs out assuming I buy as planned.

Too late. Car did not start this morning. Battery at 5.6 volts does not really work. :roll:
Toyota towed it away for a warranty battery replacement.

Reset my clock to 24 months for next replacement.

Does this one from BatteriesPlus sound good?

That seems a lot more expensive when compared to the competition (AGM / 60ah / Group 24F). It might even be the same Enersys battery as the Bosch, Exide, and Sears Platinum, just with another sticker on it.

"Exide Edge FP-AGM24F Flat Plate AGM Sealed Automotive Battery
Bosch S6508B S6 Flat Plate AGM Battery
The two above batteries are identical, except for superficial color and markings."

Yes, both batteries are made by Johnson Controls Inc (JCI) and are identical. Shop for the best buy.

Goes for most car batteries, too. If the specs of two brands are identical, then there's a 99% chance that they're made by the same company. JCI batteries come under more than 50 brand names. Some ARE custom made for a client, but if for example, you see the same specs for an Interstate, Everlast, Kirkland, Walmart, Sears, Autozone, Duralast,Advance Auto Parts, Autocraft, Western Auto and even a number of OEM batteries like Toyota, Ford and BMW they most likely came off the same factory line with only the labeling different.

AGE of battery does matter, so check the date of manufacture and get the newest one.

I got this error the other day, and it restarted after 5 tries. But I think I'll replace the starter battery. Can anyone (Tony) tell me the best method to do this so I don't inadvertently brick the car?

Replacing the 12V battery is quite simple. The hardest part is getting to the bolt under the front plastic piece.
See the 12V Battery replacement thread here. The AGM battery shown at that link is highly recommended and is available from a couple sources with different branding.

I replaced the battery today with the Exide Edge FP-AGM24F Flat Plate AGM Sealed Automotive Battery, and it's a little taller than the old one. I was not able to get the j bolt to extend through the hold-down bracket hole. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm planning to get a new j bolt; I might have to get the 12" one and cut it down. The j bolt I have is 9 3/8" in actual length; not sure if a standard 10" version includes the length of the bend, so that's why I think I might need a 12". Annoyed!

The Bosch version fits (I've installed a bunch of these) and the sister battery with Exide branding are identical except for color.

60ah / AGM / Group 24F

You most likely don't have the J-Bolt re-installed in the correct position. The hook of the J could engage in different ways. Play around with it before the battery is in place to see what I'm talking about. I just checked a picture of my Bosch AGM installation, and it appears that I had more than 3/4" of extra thread left on mine. In fact, the front side which is at the bottom of the picture and is not adjustable, is a little loose. See below.

The Exide battery looks just like your picture, but there was no finessing the j bolt. The j bolt came free during the installation, so I have no way of knowing if we put it back right. But there only seemed to be one location to hook the j onto that I could see (hole in metal tab extending from the plate below the pan). It was a little hard getting the negative connector up and over the terminal, so the battery did seem a little taller in general. I don't discount that we did something wrong, but I hesitate to uninstall it now 'cause I'm afraid I'll mess something up.
