If your car was starting fine before you dropped it off at the mechanic, then in all likelihood you don't need a new battery. He's just trying to fleece you. That's one major reason why you should never just leave your car at the mechanic. Unless you absolutely trust him. At the very least, make sure that you ask to see the old battery.

Incorrect. The battery is checked as part of any standard multi-point inspection. It can still start the engine even if it is in bad condition, therefore it gets checked with a battery analyzer.

My family has been in the mechanic business since the early 80s and we NEVER KNEW that checking the battery was part of a Lube, Oil and filter. Guess we learn something new every day.
Just in case you are to stupid to understand...this was a sarcastic comment showing how stupid you are.

It depends on the car and where your buying it. My car was $175 buy I got the best battery and it came with a warranty.
If she bought it at a mom and pop mechanic the. I can see it costing more money.

Many car batteries do. The last administration had several lead production facilities in the US which raised the cost of lead, and, subsequently, the cost of car batteries and ammunition.
