Battery life

How long do the OEM battery last? My 2012's battery is done & I need a new one & it seems to me that a battery should last more than 4 years? I don't have any stereo system mods.

About 4 years depending on usage and draw but I've had some last a lot longer. My optima red top lasted at least 6 years. Idk how long it went after I sold the car and it got abused by a very large sound system in a daily basis. Also a battery that sits most of the time will not last very long as there is always some draw on it

I guess the life of the battery was around 4 years being a 2012. I've had it for almost the past 2 years & I drive it regularly.

Mine in my 11 is strong and fine. My 06 Denali has the original battery with 149k on it. Just now starting to get weak...

Modern batteries are either all in or all out, pretty much. This is a common problem these days and changing it out is piece of advice # one for any random glitches electrically on a modern car.
