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


Review

Bought this SUV 10/05 after looking at MB500. VW is so much quieter. No problems in 18k miles! I love this vehicle and its durability, wear and tear. Everyone who has sat in it wants to borrow it when additional space is needed - they'd buy but can't afford it. Great family car - whether you have kids or just a dog like me! So much fun in the winter and summer! Definitely will buy another after this hits higher miles.


Best Features

Dash, heated/comfort of seats, heated steering wheel, AWD, tilting mirrors, electrochromatic mirrors, sound system.


Worst Features

6 CD changer in dash, better tires, tow package standard, easier folding seats.

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


Review

This is by far the best looking SUV on the road and it stops there. VW went wrong or someone did not follow how an SUV is supposed to last. The brakes are a big problem. You will replace them every 5,000 miles and it will cost you $600 or more to have them repaired. An oil change can cost you upwards of a $150 due to the design of getting to the oil pan. Everything goes wrong with this SUV. Stay away from the Touareg.


Best Features

The lights at night are the best.


Worst Features

Everything from improve the gas mileage to the brakes. This vehicle is very poor for a VW.

Review

The Volkswagen Touareg is a great car. I have a Toyota SUV, but I like this one better. It is great on the highway and in local traffic. The turning radius is unbelievable.


Best Features

The lights on the floor inside and the red lighting at night.


Worst Features

The radio buttons wear easily.

Review

I recently hit a large buck in my Touareg. Although the buck was large enough to total a car, my Touareg handled it perfectly (like the tank it is) and got me safely through the accident with minimal damage. Although it has lousy fuel economy, when it comes down to safety, the Touareg is an excellent vehicle to drive where I live in Pennsylvania where there are LOTS of deer.


Best Features

The excellent handling.


Worst Features

The Touareg's fuel economy needs to be improved.
