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


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.

Review

Although the Touareg gets loads of attention - looks nice, feels nice - it seems to have a lot of "bugs" to work out. The car is highly computerized and sometimes needs to be rebooted (yes, just like your comptuer at home). This means actually turning off your car, then turning it back on. There have been MULTIPLE recalls on the Touareg and has spent a lot of time in the shop. This has the potential of being a great car if they could work out some of these annoying problems.


Favorite Features

Beautiful exterior, comfortable interior with loads of extras.


Suggested Improvements

More reliability. Needs to improve rear seat passenger amenities (better cup holders, rear earphones for radio). Would love a 3rd row of seats!
