Every three years. You need a new battery every three years.

^^^Truth^^^

But if you let it go and get past 5 years then you're obligated to see how much life you can squeeze out of it.

The OEM battery in my '15 C7Z lasted eight years, just replaced it even though no issues, went with Delco, as outperforms the $400 ones I put in my Caddy.

Eight years is more than double what I get from others, SE FL beats up batteries, tires melt too.

My 2016 Cruze still has the original battery. Longest I've ever had a battery last...6 years, a new record.

Nope. Simple deductive reasoning.

The vehicle appears to be red.

There are 45,347,122 red vehicles registered in the US

Only 14,125,478 have a black interior

Only 325,523 of those vehicles have a VIN ending in 317

Of those, only 5,334 are cross referenced to owners of Braun LED flashlights

Of those, only 1213 have their battery access inside the vehicle.

Of the 1213, only 1 has an owner that is unable to drive his vehicle to get a battery because the battery is DEAD !!!
