Love/Hate my Touareg
By nathanoh on
2004 Volkswagen Touareg V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
3 years with my baby and sometimes I love this truck, and sometimes I hate it. Drives like a monster, raw power, comfortable, luxurious, has been a savior for 3 floods. Electronics are a nightmare, been through 4 sets of tires (almost a grand each time), tons of annyoing recalls. After reading other reviews, I do think it is a dealership issue, as mine has had a loaner car for me every time, and all things fixed have stayed fixed. I have never been without transportation, even when the part I needed took a week. I recommend the Touareg if you have a solid dealership to take care of you and the car, and a nice bit of cash for the expensive maintenance and tires.
Speed and acceleration, luxury, and comfort. Nice looking auto.
Sound and navigation system is subpar for an SUV in this price range. Too many damn electric issues. Mysterious tire issues.
