  1. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    You don't know me to make such assumptions. You even don't know why I authorized what I did. This dealer has been dishonest ever since it rebuilt its news installation building. I guess "they" want us customers to pay for their new business place. I saw another post of yours, which you posted...
  2. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    So why "TOYODA" and not "TOYOTA"? Same, why "YODA" from Star Wars and not "YOTA"? It doesn't make any sense. I guess it is just funny though. Thanks.:nerd: P.S. Here a true answer to "YODA vs TODA".
  3. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    I have this car for about 4 years now, and I bought it with 19K miles. Now it has about a bit more than 42k miles. The only thing I need to fix is the front bumper cover (some broken tabs near the front fender liners and missing clips), but I can still drive it "as is". The car is out of...
  4. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    I got an email from Toyota USA telling me that this dealer manager will contact me. I already received 3 phone calls, missing calls, but I don't have any intention to contact the dealer manger back. I am sure I will never go back to that dealer; however, I am hesitant to go to any other Toyota...
  5. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Yes, I did authorize the replacement of the "terminal"; however, in retrospect, I didn't think it was a necessary, and they were taking advantage of me, for I didn't know at that time if it was needed. Take a look at the old battery picture. The advisor said the terminal was needed due to the...

    Toyota USA answer to my email complaint... This is the email I got from Toyota USA: I already sent an email back to Toyota USA with my permission to take action. However, I don't know what good this is going to do if any. On my part, this is the last time I deal with Leith Toyota here in...
  7. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Do you really need to replace yours? How old is your battery? Any issues indicating that it is time to replace it?
  8. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Yes, $43 was labor and about $28 was the price for a terminal. You are correct!
  9. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Just an hour ago, I received a phone call from Leith Toyota, but I wasn't able to catch cell phone on time to answer the call. Then, I called back at the missing call on my cell, and that's how I found out that Leith Toyota, possibly a manager, was calling since I posted a "one start" review on...
  10. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Thank you very much for you comments. I think I can change the battery next time, but I need to buy the toys to do this kind of job. I don't think I will need another battery for at least 2 years though I hope it will take longer. Btw, the advisor did explain that because I had a corrosion on...
  11. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    I already posted @toyotausa and @LeithToyota on FB my disappointment with the last 3 services I had @LeithToyota in Raleigh NC. I also send an email to Toyota USA regarding the battery replacement service.
  12. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Short post here: Yelp has more than a few bad reviews from Leith Toyota and other Leith dealerships here in Raleigh NC. Anyhow, I don't know if any dealership is any good any more in the Raleigh NC area. Fred Anderson another dealer which I have visited also but it is a bit out of my way to go...
  13. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Bad Service from Leith Toyota @ Raleigh NC I know what you are saying, and I am sure I didn't get a new cable, for the end of the cable that attaches to the "actual positive terminal" is still the same. By the way, I am angry that this has happened to me, but I am not the type of person...
  14. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    First of all, thank you for your feedback. The advisor did come to me with his recommendation, one of which was the replacement of the positive terminal. I can't read minds, but I am getting the idea that I didn't need a new positive terminal, which ended up costing me an extra $71. I really...
  15. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Toyota Dealer BS or not? OK, today I went to the dealer for a battery replacement, but I am not very happy to find out (I assume lots of BS here!!) that not only I need a battery replacement, but I ended up needing what "they" called a "BATTERY TERMINAL END (POSITIVE)" or a "1 90982-05054...
  16. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Hmm, the battery cleaning was done by the dealer. I got the cleaning for free after I complained on facebook because it was not cleaned at my 40k inspection and nobody asked me if I wanted to have it done. I will keep in mind what other people suggested that I should have "them" (the dealer)...
  17. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Yes, I am what you called a "low milage person", for I try to drive my car the least amount of time possible (I am retired!). Currently my car has 42k miles. Thanks for your comments.
  18. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    I just mentioned "refurbished" because there is such dishonesty around regarding dealers, and any auto repair shops that I have to say something to make my point. It may be that there is no "refurbished" batteries, but these people from dealers and mechanics, the "automobile industry", are so...
  19. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Quick and stupid question here, how do I know if the car got installed a NEW battery? OK, on Tuesday I will take the car to the dealer to get the battery replaced. Is there a way to tell if I really get a NEW battery installed and not a refurbished one or so other "stupid" battery trick from...
  20. Car Battery question: should I replace it?

    Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    I think it is more than 4 years since I believe the battery is the original battery which came with this car. I am sure that battery has been sitting inside my car since mid 2011, which is when the 2012 models started selling. Thus, from, say 2012 inclusive until 2016 now, it has been almost 5...
