2013 Scion FR-S Long Term Road Test

2013 Scion FR-S: A Helping Hand

November 13, 2012

Our longterm 2013 Scion FR-S loaned some electrons to an oft-parked car that really could use a battery switch. The Scion's battery's terminals are easily accessed and the process was dead-simple.

Also, if you're a weight weenie looking for some low hanging fruit, its battery is a good place to start. They don't call them "lead acid" for nothing. Have you seen some of these aftermarket lithium-ion batteries? They're nuts, something like two pounds, tops. Haven't tried one though. I do wonder if they're really cut out for car duty yet. Any experience with them out there?
