Could your 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Rabbit Convertible may need a replacement battery sooner.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Rabbit Convertible) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
