"Local Toyota agent phoned, my new battery is here! NZ$3500, including tax and fitting. 6year/160,000km guarantee! This changes everything, suddenly these cars are a bargain."

For those that don't know, some Toyota bigwig made an announcement that replacement batteries would be provided to existing NHW10 owners if they wanted them, at a reasonable price. Many observers were sceptical, since these batteries are no longer manufactured. In fact, we still don't know where they sourced them from. But at least Toyota has supported these older but still quite usable cars, though it remains to be seen how long the offer lasts.
For reasons unknown, Toyota is insisting on getting back the old battery packs. I suspect they want to analyse them, to see if they can learn anything from how they aged, but that's pure guesswork.
