You can buy a refurbished matched battery from green tec auto for $000.
They work like a champ.
As for the mileage, we put one of those batteries in a 2010 Prius with
350,000 miles on it. Battery was dead, horrible mileage. We bought the
car that was in otherwise decent shape for $,400, changed the battery now
mileage is like a new car. Needs brakes next.

Or you can use the one of many suppliers on craigslist for about half that

to resolve the problem. They bring a replacement pack to you and install
in about an hour.
The triangle error message is not the end of the world. Many times the erro
