I didn't realize that Panasonic made auto batteries. That's interesting!OEM Panasonic / Made in Japan batteries:
a) Wife's 2008 RAV4 Limited v6 - replaced with a Johnson Controls WalMart battery, in 2015.
a) My 2000 4Runner SR5 v6 - purchased from original senior owner, 2 years ago.
- my guess, battery is a Dealer replacement / as SUV is now 17 years old
- who knows, unless Japan battery was manufactured before my T4R build date
