If you have been following any of the other Lambda forums you probably know the car battery on the Enclave is not under the hood, it's under the floor in front on the 2nd row seats. (refer to http://www.acadiaforum.net/forum/index.php?topic=58.0) I'm wondering if there is any concern here about chemicals. Don't batteries emit Hydrogen gas sometimes? ??? Without actually seeing the setup, I was wondering if GM has done anything with safety in mind here.

I know that on the Saturn Outlook the battery is back by the second row and the explanation was that it added to the lower center of gravity and less heat from the engine added to battery life. Also, there was a special venting system that made all fumes from the battery escape below the car and not into the passenger comartment because the floor cover had a seal. Do not know about the Enclave.

There are remote terminals in the engine compartment for the purposes of jump starting the vehicle.

Some cars have remote terminals specifically for jump starting that are away from the battery(safer that way) - it wouldn't surprise me if the Enclave has such terminals under the hood.

Edit - oops, linuxtwit beat me to it!
