Hi Demkarcom,I have a 2015 GT Cabrio new to me and I am trying to figure out if I need a new battery preemptively. No issues, but they will pop up at the worst moment.
The Model number is a FIAMM 673001440 and there is a date code burned into the top that looks to be 90512 and maybe a big 1 at the end? im attaching a photo of the code. not sure if there is any other markings without removing the whole battery.
If you keep the battery fully charged and the plates covered with electrolyte (assuming it is a lead acid battery), it should be fine until you need your second triple bypass. Attach a trickle charger whenever the car will sit for a week or more. The book Rich Dad, Poor Dad suggests that the rich dad does not waste money, while the poor dad spends as much as he can for as long as he can. Beware: There are a lot of consumerists on this site who believe that more expensive products are naturally better than those reasonably priced, and that Joshua Bell is no good because he played in the DC Metro for a day for chump change. Even when the battery runs down it is not a big deal, although with all electronic gizmos it can be confusing.
