Battery Size?

What size group battery does my 08 Rav4 have I believe its a Group 35. What about an Optima battery? Are they worth the price. Saw them @ Costco but the Costco i went to today didn't have them just their usual Kirkland brand. Since my 08 will be 3 years old @ end of year i am considering replacing the battery before it causes any problems.
i am a believer in preventative maintenance as that's what we did in my 35 year airline mech life.

Post #5 has a great link but it's all good information. Smart move @ the three year replacement.

You can enter at any leading battery manufactures and they have a catalog that can tell you which battery will work on your specific ride. Some call it BATTERY FINDER or Battery Selector. Regardless which brand you pick. It can give you the one that will work, and most of all, the appropriate size. Some batteries we might buy too large for the space we have in our RAV4s. Hope this helps.
