2005 Volkswagen Touareg V6 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

this is the best car i have ever owned.. performance and handling are outstanding ... the only drawbacks are: - the v6 is slightly under powered 0- 60, tough very robust from 30-100, - it sucks down gasoline.


Best Features

Worst Features

more 0-60 power..

2005 Volkswagen Touareg V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I have enjoyed the pleasure of driving this quality vehicle. Other than the Pirelli tires, the vehicle has been very reliable. However, if some problem does manifest itself, VW dealer has been most helpful in correcting the problem. I would think Volkswagon would take some responsibility for the lack of wear and realibility of these tires since it was VW's engineers that chose these tires for the production line. Stepping away from the tire issue is not a good way to resolve the issue.


Best Features

The entire passenger compartment is a favorite feature. The way the vehicle rides on long trips and it's handling ability on mountain highways make it such a pleasure to drive.


Worst Features

Improve the gas mileage on the V8. Equip the vehicle with tires that are not only reliable and do not blow out as the Pirelli's on my vehicle have done but that have a longer tread life.

2005 Volkswagen Touareg V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Dash lights failed. Entire assembly needed to be replaced. Tires worn out at 15K. Dealer recommends alignment when tires changed. At slow speed turns it feels like the U joints are catching and releasing. Told it is caused by the tires that need to be replaced. Warning lights appear and need to be "recalibrated." Accelerator pauses occasionally. Told it was the brakes that don't allow the accelerator to function - not true. Very expensive car for this to happen in 6 months.


Worst Features

See above Quality control needs a lot of work. This car should NEVER be driven off road unless you are ready to align the wheels each trip.

Review

This is not your father's VW. It accelerates like a sports car with the luxury of any top European sedan. It also has the convenience of having the road view of an SUV enabling the driver to see far down the highway. Like many SUV's you may take it off road. My off road experience has been limited to date but I do know that mud and snow are easily accessible. This is my fifth SUV and I do not think of it as an SUV at all. I think many men will buy this as a family car and end up wanting it to be their very own.
