There isnt a specific battery to fit the car. alot of batterys are universal wich means that it has multiple applications. What you need to pay attention to is the voltage. If you are running a sound system or any eletrical appliance in your car thats not stock you should get a performance battery. These are more expensive but they are worth the price. You can leave your keys in the igniton overnight and the car will still crank up in the morning. My recomendation for that car would be an Optima Redtop. you can find this at most of your local automotive stores. Having a high voltage battery also increases the motor efficiency at high RPM's.

They dont make specific batteries for cars. Just look at the owners manual if you have it, it should tell you which type to get. There are different CCA numbers for cars. CCA is cold cranking amps. Just match that to the car and then find one the physically fits in the space. Thats all you need to do. Also, the terminals, make sure you have the right terminals. If someone switched the batttery cables it may have been changed to side mount clamps. If not then standard top mount will do. Sorry if this does not help you.
