    Tested my 2014 with 49K miles on it. It went into service in early 2014. It's a bit cold here now, so at about 38 degrees after sitting overnight it measured 12.2 V

    Yup, agreed. I'm hoping for warmer weather and winter to be over. Then I may have a chance to run it into summer.

    I haven't had any peculiar things with the car so far, but I also worry about being stranded and/or mileage ... etc.

    Leaning towards a factory replacement, rather than an aftermarket.

    Last week I was checking my 7-1/2 year old battery. It appeared to be about half charged after sitting overnight from a short trip the day before (12.4 volts). Yesterday it died completely. So when you hear a 7 year old battery should be replaced -- Pay Attention. Interesting side story: That day I had an appointment to take the DMV written test to renew my driver's license. (Yes, us old folks have to do that) Those appointments are Hard to get. Fortunately, I discovered the problem several hours before the test. We have only one car. Not an insurmountable problem but it would have been a bit of a pain. Yes, I passed the test but that's another story.
