Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1996 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years).

Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet C2500 Suburban battery, and so can frequent short drives.

Your Chevrolet C2500 Suburban could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
