Dead in Seven Days

ReviewWe drive this car around town mostly and average about 45 MPG. Several times a year we drive from Florida to Michigan and back. The last trip our mileage average was 48.8. When the car sets for seven days or more, without being started, the battery goes dead. Local dealer and Toyota advises this is normal. Their "fix" for this problem is having you disconnect the negative battery cable and then reconnecting it when you want to start the car. The battery is located beneath the floor in the cargo area.
Best FeaturesThe excellent fuel economy.
Worst FeaturesImprove battery capacity to support the various electrical drains or install a switch to disconnect the battery for long term parking.
