Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1984 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your GMC K2500 Suburban battery.
