Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your GMC Acadia battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Acadia stranded. Your GMC Acadia could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
