2004 Volkswagen Touareg V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
I bought this vehicle new almost off the line pretty much base package, no nav. It's a remarkable SUV with amazing power capability and the safest thing you can own. I have driven this car across the country four times, up and down the coast and mountains alike, and there is nothing that handles extreme weather, harsh conditions, or long rides in any category better. I love this car despite recalls (free fixes) and other issues that occur on any luxury car at a cost. I wish people appreciated the real capability and power this SUV has, it's not an around town vehicle, use it, love it, or leave it.
Power, extreme weather handling, off-road driving and highway alike, safest thing you can own, good looking and unique to own, You're getting an Audi/Cayenne for 50% off.
Gas mileage but it's 6,000lbs+, improve quality of interior fittings like door switches and console buttons.
