2004 Volkswagen Touareg V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
Where to begin? Everything you have read is true. Brakes seem to go out every two years and when they do, prepare to replace your rotors. Tires go out every two years also and I pay about $900 to have four new tires put on. Oil changes are upward of $100 and dealing with the dealership is a living HELL. Beautiful car, but insane to maintain. I am thankful I don't have car payments. I will NEVER own a VW again!
