I opened the hood looking for an insulating blanket and found neither it nor a battery. Now, I'm sure there a battery somewhere in this 2011 V-6 Touareg Sport but I had to look all over the owners' manual to find out where. To my very great surprise, the manual says it's under the driver's seat and hard to get to, who would have thought? Have any of you had a battery problem and, if so, did you try to take care of it or did you have to go to the dealer to get it taken care of? I know the life expectancy on a normal car battery is somewhere in the vicinity of 5-7 years under non-extreme circumstances, but what is your experience of the life expectancy on the battery in a Touareg? My "new to me" Touareg is now about five years old and I'm kind of wondering when I should be expecting problems with the battery?
