Why do people worry so much about the date stamp? LOL.....I even heard people refer to them as "expiration dates" lol....far from
As long as the battery look fresh, all the cells are level, there's no bulging at the sides - I wouldn't fret....
Anyways, back on topic.....that seems like an odd display of the date code....you sure there isn't any other sticker anywhere else on the battery?
That being said, being an ACDelco....how much did you pay for the beast? :P Perhaps it was on the shelf too long
If it was over the 100$ mark, it could have been sitting on the shelf a while :P
