I had to replace my battery on my 2011 CC Sport. I've owned the car 2.5 yrs and have approx. 36,000 miles. I've never had to replace a battery in such a short period of time but I've also never owned a VW. I usually keep a car 8-10 years. I love the CC's ride, but I don't see myself owning it that long. I will be going back to Honda or Subaru.
I also have experienced a small lag during acceleration but nothing like "watchtrader" or "slkr" have experienced.
2.5 years of life for a battery is not that unusual if you live in hot climates. The batteries in our Acura and Lexus vehicles both only lasted 3 years. It was my experience with Honda cars that I had previously owned, as well. The longest lasting battery (5.5 years) I had was in a Volvo, but in that car the battery resided under the trunk floor, away from the engine heat.
