Could your 1990 GMC R2500 Suburban be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years.

Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your R2500 Suburban stranded. Your GMC R2500 Suburban won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
