My battery is dying. It won't start after it idles for a short period.

At the moment, it still has the stock battery installed (Panasonic 55D23L).
Any suggestions on what I should replace it with?

Living in Toronto, Canada so the weather will fluctuate during the winter (not sure if that matters).

Thanks

That's weird. I looked through all the major (non-oem) auto parts stores online and seemingly none of them can find a battery for the 2016 Scion iM.

I searched for the 2017 Toyota Corolla iM, and was given various results, but Size 35 batteries are the most common. I'd start with that, I guess.

I know right? Was in Walmart and they have a terminal where you can look up your car and it will tell you which battery is compatible. No Scion iM but 2017 Toyota Corolla iM was there. Said the same thing - 35N ($215 CDN for the AGM).

Wonder how much it would be if I just went to a Toyota dealership parts desk and bought the battery there.

The OEM battery is definitely a BCI size 35. If it helps, the dimensions in inches are:

Length: 9 ⁹⁄₁₆
Width: 6 ⅞
Height: 8 ⅞

Just to close of this thread... I ended up buying a Toyota battery from my local Toyota dealership for $157 (simply walk up to their Parts & Services department).
The battery is a non-flooded group 35 (size), cold crank amperage (cca) of 550 and reserve capacity (rc) of 90 minutes. Any battery matching these specs will do.

Swapped it myself to save on the labor charges.
