2015 Civic Battery or Starter?

On Friday my wife took our 2015 civic for shopping grocery's. She parked the car and after she came back the car wouldn't start.
Thinking it could be she left a light on or something in the car, she got a jump start and the car started back up.
I drove it for on Saturday all day and the car started right up no problems. I took it to autozone on Sunday to test the battery (original battery from when we bought it brand new) and they said the battery is healthy but said it could possibly be the starter (he said that test failed) but would need to remove the starter to bring it in to know if its indeed the starter. He mentioned to drive it for a few weeks and see if the problem happens again. The car has only 60,000 miles. Is it common and possible it could be the starter at 60k?
I just don't want my wife to get stranded anywhere so would prefer to get the issue fixed beforehand.

It's most likely the battery, they don't last as long as they used to

Battery would be the more likely culprit. Honda starters are pretty robust but modern cars take a toll on batteries.

Thanks for your response. Do you recommend replacing the battery then even though the autozone test said its fine and it said the starter failed?
I have been driving it since Friday since it wouldn't start until.jump starting it and everything seems fine.

Do you want your wife to get stranded again? Especially come winter time when battery performance really matters?
Most autozone employees have trouble remembering how to tie their shoes every morning

Re: 2015 Civic Battery or Starter?

You could get a second test done at another place (battery place is the best). The starter could be sticking but not as common. 2015 is not an old battery but it really has to do with how the car is used and the modern cars seem to use up batteries faster.

If it was my wife's car though I would just replace it rather then having to hear about for years to come because she got stranded somewhere
