I swapped out my battery on my own using an Interstate battery. I've heard rumors that you have to register/reset (aka have the stealership rape you) but its BS. You can use any battery as long as it has the same spec's as the mfg battery (your local autoparts store or even Walmart can look it up for you). Many other have successfully done this on their own too! Been over 6 months for me with no issues.
