You can buy a refurbished matched battery from green tec auto for $1000.

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 $1,400, 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 price that rebuild the pack with OEM cells. Many times there is just a bad cell or two. Replacing these and re-balancing the pack is all that's neededto 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 error can be cleared with a $20 obd-II tool that has wireless connection to your phone and the car continue to provide good services for months and years down the road.
