Toyota - New 2007 TCH owner, have questions

Toyota Camry Hybrid - GreenHybrid - Hybrid Cars - www.greenhybrid.com
I just bought a 07 TCH with 110K miles. I know the previous owner of the car. The car had a check hybrid system warning with the Check engine life. I know the battery will need work. I had the following questions:

1. I reset the hybrid battery to see if it was a fake alarm. When I unplugged the 12V I noticed that the battery was a duralast 24-DLG. Is that the right battery? If not should I replace it? What should I replace it with?

2. As mentioned earlier the check hybrid system warning was present. After the reset I have driven 40 miles and the light hasnt come back. The cars performance is sluggish. The dash says I have had 32mpg since last fuel up. The ICE starts up as soon as the car is turned on and the battery meter is at 80%. The battery seems to be charging as soon as I lift my foot off the accelerator. When I push the car hard battery seems to add power with the ice. The car hardly coasts on battery. This car has sat for a period of time.

Do you guys recommend that I take the car on the highway and push it so the battery cells get balanced?

3. Do you guys know any rebuilders in Chicago. I know this company with decent reviews: . They will balance the cells and replace the bad modules. Their charge is $450 to remove open and check the modules and $50 for every module they replace.

4. What other maintenance should I be looking at considering the car is 10 years 110K miles.

Thank you!!
