2004 Volkswagen Touareg V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
The vehicle has been in the shop at least 14 times in 3 years. I have replaced the tires 3 times and the vehicle seems to have gremlins that make the car hesitate and/or surge forward with great anticipation. What's worse than the SUV's performance is the lack of quality service you get from the service departments at any of the VW dealerships. VW has done an awful job of trying to capture the market willing to pay 40K+.
Interior is great!
