Hello all! Has anyone had to replace the 12v battery. At the 45k service they said it needed replacing. How much would it be?

Somebody on this forum was quoted a fairly idiotic price IIRC. It is nothing but a small regular battery, it is hard to see why it should cost much.

Ours seems OK at 40,000 miles. There's no reason for it to be expensive - it is a small, basic 12v accumulator. I doubt that Mitsubishi had it specially designed and manufactured - it must be something like a large motorcycle or golf cart battery.

Just searched around for the battery that is listed in the manual. Could find it in an Aussie website. Saw around 247 euro. (S46B24L)

The looked at the car - and it is a different battery in the car! (X60cmf)

Like others said it should not be any different than another maintenance free battery. You should get a maintenace free sealed battery as it sits inside the car and not "outside" in the engine compartment. I would take out the existing one and make sure I get one of same dimensions (so it fits) and having the poles in the same place (otherwise the cables may not fit, but you need to check). If it is off a little bit in capacity I would not bother. Should not cost more than 100 Euros I would think, but that is a guess.

100 Euros seems ridiculously high to me! I have a golf cart battery which is a similar size and capacity and which I carry around to run an electric pump for our dinghy and inflatable paddleboard - that cost about £40 in Halfords.

I would definitely get a second opinion..... that battery leads a a very easy life. It sits in a nice cool place, never has to supply starting currents, so unless it has been standing fully discharged for a while at some time (unlikely?), there is no reason why it shouldn't last 10 years.

We did have to replace the equivalent battery in out Prius after about six or seven years - again, it only exists to get the systems booted up and to provide some stabilisation on the 12v bus.

Took it to another place. They did a battery test, told me it was fine and should get another few years out of it.
