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.

Wow... i was just trying to find out if the battery was new or not... im not a cheap ass trying to skimp on my new-to-me ride. I tried to decipher the date code via the internet, and it's either not the actual date code or something else. The car was very well taken care of and has brand new Pirellis, new wipers so maybe it had a new battery too?

I will go buy another battery... no problem! I just didn't want to spend unnecessary money if it was brand new.

You all will be thrilled to learn that I have purchased a new battery which was manufactured June 2022 with a 3 yr warranty!!!... I will refrain from specifying the brand and type in order to prevent this thread from generating more controversy. Haha.

Definitely not keeping anyone up! yes, I got a Black Friday deal on a 40 pack of Energizer AA's so the car started once, but all kinds of warning lights on the dash. any ideas what that may be from?

Actually got a Duralast AGM Platinum battery from Autozone. Made by JCL June of 22 and a 3 yr warranty. maybe not everyone's first choice, but the place is close to home so convenience won out over anything else. They had a bunch in stock so I feel good that if something goes wrong I can easily get a new one. Guy at the counter was looking up the car and said "never had to look up one of these cars before ... Dang that's the biggest battery we have"
