Can't speak for the Toyota "special battery" but my 2019 Honda Pilot has the Start/Stop feature. The factory equipped "special battery" is nothing more than an AGM battery. The Pilots without the Start/Stop feature come equipped from the factory with a flooded lead battery.

Some guy is on the Camray forum wild because his new OEM and the dealer can't get a battery for several weeks. They won't put a temporary loaner in for him either. From what they are saying there's a back log on these and manufacturing just can't get caught up . Another senseless thing to worry about. You can bet that the hood rats will be catching on soon too. They'll know how to get in there lock or not. I wonder when the great starter shortage is going to beginðŸ¥µ .
