Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1983 GMC K2500 Suburban? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your GMC K2500 Suburban battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your K2500 Suburban stranded. Your GMC K2500 Suburban won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
