Visited/searched/googled CT, WM, Active Green Ross and CC for new car batter for a corolla sedan. (Costco does not manufacture battery for this make/model..)

Do you have any suggestion please for a new battery, and reliable and reasonable shop?

Try to do it yourself. (DIY)

Not knowing the year in which the Car was made, I am looking at a Battery for a car that was made in 2010. Generally the Batteries last 6 years. So, the range that I am looking at will fit your vehicle.

The Original Toyota Batteries will run you between $127 to $181 depending upon where it is that you buy. The same size, YOU HAVE TO MEASURE THE THREE DIMENSIONS, the Width, the length and the DEPTH also, I see there is a range of 640 CCA or 680 CCa, the Best suitable for you are available in WALMART.

Please read the owners manual. for all of the details. Important part is it should drop in place and should also come out easy. If you are a DIY then you can save a lot of money.

Walmart is selling the EVER START, 5 year free replacement batteries for $93 plus tax. Prices change depending upon the location. GTA is a standard price. There is a service REP who will help you. You also get $10 back for the core. Take the old one and buy a new one.

If you know how to install the same, then, drop it and connect the same and drive away. (About good 40 minutes work.)

Simple answer: compare wal-mart and Sears battery price. If the prices are comparable, go with the Sears brand (Die Hard) battery.

Everstart Mexx is $109.99 + taxes at WM. Not sure how to install it so, I will try to take help from WM mechanic. Not sure, how much they charge...

The Walmart Battery is good for 5 Years. 121r will fit in it. The CCA is 600. That is better for the Canadian cold climate. CCA 640 - 680 will be even better. But check the size, it has to fit in. (Die Hard is rated for only 24 Months) There is NO MEAT in it. The lead plates are very thin.

They used to install it for $35.+ Please ask the Manager. The place I checked does not have Auto Service.

They do the checking of your harness and Electrical System. Also a Load test for integrity. It is worth it.

Hi,
Thanks for response.
I went to Walmart. Their batteries 121R are having CCA of 550. I specifically asked for CCA of 600 or more. Their response was they don't have that specification.
Have you seen CCA of 600 or more in Walmart batteries?
