2004 Volkswagen Touareg SUV V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

nice from far but far from nice. i'm appalled at the 8.5 mpg i'm getting. brakes constantly wail, clunk on up shift or downshift, leather stiching pulling apart at 3,500 miles and the car has a chime or buzzer for everything, have to pull the fuses to shut it up. should have kept my audi allroad...

2004 Volkswagen Touareg SUV V6 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I tested the X-5, Cayenne V6, MDX, Honda Pilot, Lexus 330 and decided the the Touareg was the overall best V6 suv out there. The interiors are Jaguar/Bentley quality. Great attention to detail and comfort. The v- 6 has enough power for the daily routine. The color selection is better than any other suv out there. The ride and handling are superior. I considered the X5 but thought the ride was too rough and the suv too small inside. The pricing is ridiculous. The Cayenne v-6 is a joke. Go for the V8 if you have to have the Porsche logo. As for the japanese cars, I just dont like the feel and interiors.


Best Features

Interior/exterior quality, sound system, colors, ride, quiet cabin.


Worst Features

More radio controls in the steering wheel.

2004 Volkswagen Touareg SUV V6 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Very comfortable ride. Had a 2000 Jetta before and thought that was nice - this is so much better! The stylish exterior and the luxurious interior made waiting 3 months for it to come in (from overseas) worthwhile. It handles well for its size, and is safe (several airbags on board).


Best Features

Love the auto wipers! Also, the climate control system makes it very comfortable. The double sun shades (4 total) are a big help.


Worst Features

The engine needs to be more powerful for the V6. Hard to accelerate in a hurry - for example, when merging with traffic on a highway.

Review

Great ride & build quality.. Have had intermittant problem with accelerator hesitation that the dealer has not been able to correct. This hesitation has caused many near miss accidents at interscections. Problems with air ride suspension....bags will deflate without warning, causing fault message on in- dash display. will correct itself after 10-15 minutes Fuel economy is much less that expected (15-19 mpg higway, 65/70 mph)


Best Features

Solid construction and fit/finish are excellent


Worst Features

Increase horsepower in V6 and/or reduce weight so that engine is less strained. Improve dealer service training on computer diagnostics
