Toyota Battery Replacement Details

The battery stores and supplies the electrical energy used by the starter to initially start the engine. When the vehicle is running, the battery serves as backup power if the alternator cannot meet the electrical demands of the vehicle.

Common Symptoms:

  • Engine may crank slowly or not at all
  • Engine may stall while driving
  • The battery may leak causing corrosion on the cable ends, mounting surface, and points below the battery

What the Mechanic Should Do:

  • The battery cable ends should be inspected for corrosion and cleaned or replaced as necessary whenever the battery is replaced
  • The average useful life of a vehicle battery is around four years. This time will increase/decrease depending on the integrity and performance of the charging system.

I just feel they like they know there stuff. They take care of the customers to the best of their ability, basically that a lot of car places fix things without telling. They fix things that don't need to be fixed and then charge at a very high price or even for basic just simple and small repairs there very expensive. They're just very honest and by far the best shop I've ever been to.

by - Verified Customer September 14, 2015

They were friendly. The service was adequate.

by - Verified Customer September 12, 2015

The gentleman or mechanic was transparent. They explained the whole process to me. It was great. I had to get a rental car because it was going to take longer to fix. They covered the cost of the rental. He explained why the repair took longer. They kept me in the loop. They were easy to understand. I liked the generosity of the shop.

by - Verified Customer September 11, 2015

I took a diesel in. They said it's not their specialty. They preferred not to work on it.

by - Verified Customer September 09, 2015

I can't give it a ten. It was the ease of access. They got to it right away. It was the price that we agreed on.

I feel they charged me without fixing the car. I felt it was a lot for a diagnostic. The person who used to own the place was amazing. I had to switch and it was difficult.

They were really helpful. Reasonable prices. They were very friendly. I felt safe leaving my vehicle with them.

by - Verified Customer August 12, 2015

You couldn't get me to recommend anyone else. They were awesome. They showed me why it wasn't working. They showed it to me so I would know what had to be done.

Great customer service. The last service done wasn't done right so they gave me a free service. That made me happy and satisfied.

by - Verified Customer July 21, 2015

They do good work. They fix the problem. They tell you what needs to be done and they don't do anything else without asking you.

I'm totally committed to them. They're great people. The owner is wonderful.

by May 20, 2015

The problem was I had explained what I needed. I knew what the problem was. I went to get the price and what he told me was way over my limit. He wanted to charge me for looking at it. They he changed his mind and said he wouldn't charge me.

The mechanics weren't knowledgeable. They tell you what you want to hear. They don't find out what needs to be done.

by May 09, 2015

They were friendly. They were open and available. Reasonable prices.

by - Verified Customer April 24, 2015

They are very helpful and friendly. If they give you a quote they stick with that price. If you bring in a different quote they will match it.They know what they are doing and they have people who are qualified for emissions.
