Can someone recommend a good battery for 2008 V6 SR5?

My trusty original Panasonic battery has finally died after 12 years. I'm now looking for a replacement. What is a good replacement battery for the 2008 SR5 V6 4x4?

Yep, these are good batteries. Most batteries are made by 2 or 3 companies with different stickers and may be different internally. Check out this recent video from Projectfarm.

Ive been running an Optima Red for the last 6 years in my Ď08 6 cyl. Need to make sure you get batt with terminals on the correct side.

This was me a couple years ago... I was happy/impressed with the oem battery that I just walked back into the Toyota dealership and asked for a new one. It's been fine these past couple years.

Iíve had an Optima Red for maybe three years now. No complaints. Only time will tell how long it will last. I can look at the part number for you if you need in the morning, it was weird figuring out the correct one at the time I think.

If you liked OEM, Iíve heard of people downloading coupons to specific local dealerships online and getting them for a good deal. Might be worth calling around.

Interstate batteries are great. Even better when you get them at Costco for much less than most any battery elsewhere.

Toyota

I have had good luck with Toyota batteries, one on my 93 truck lasted 9 years and the current battery in the same truck is going on 6. My 99 3rd. gen is also running Toyota battery and my 87 FJ60 is going on 5 years on a group 27 battery.

From what I understand they don't sell them in this country. They only go in new cars made in Japan.
