2004 Volkswagen Touareg V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
You will get a love hate relationship with this SUV. It drives great, great in the snow, has great power. It is fun to drive and looks nice. The SUV has some stupid build designs, like the battery is under the drivers seat. Lets talk about how expensive it is to own this vehicle. Replaced thermostat $1200. that right $1200.00 the front part of the car has to be taken off the thermostat is in the front of the engine, so you might as well replace water pump and belt. Your going to have problems with the airbags, the tire monitoring system. The worst part is the battery drain as I hate a car that wont start. So it gets expensive to own the vehicle. Oh and the brakes that was another $1100.
horsepower, ride, handling and great in snow
electrical system!!!!!! they should own up for this problem SUV and figure out a way to fix all the electrical problems better yet give people there money back and scape all these SUV as I will never own another VW again because of this SUV.
