New battery or not, get it load tested (don't just measure voltage on the terminals). This car is highly susceptible to poor/failing batteries. There are people here who have claimed a newer battery, but then it tested bad - so you can't rule out a battery based on age.

Your car is 1 yr older than mine. I just changed my battery last fall. I was pushing my luck, as the battery was over 5-1/2 yrs old. You may have been equally lucky and gotten 6-1/2 years out of yours, but now it's finally bit the dust.

Yeah I hear that but look there is entirely way to much **** malfunctioning to just need a new battery I'm talking now today it won't even go into gear it's like it's locked in place and now my rear wiper blade stays on no matter if I switch it off at control I'm going to have to have see the dealership for repair hoo all goes well I'm not financially stable enough to be dropping my third down payment this month I just can't do it

Suit yourself.

But it's an easy, cheap check to have it load tested. Auto parts places will do it, or you can buy a tester for $20-30 bucks at Harbor Freight and do it yourself. If you don't need a new battery, it's cost you 20 bucks. If you do need one, now you KNOW you need one.

The problem is the computers in these cars want good, solid dependable power. Poor/failing batteries don't provide that. Many, many, many issues here on the forum that have been resolved by a new battery.
