2005 Volkswagen Touareg V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
We previously owned a 2004 VW Beetle Convertible and traded into this. We do no off-roading, but loved the body style and needed more room. After eleven months of ownership, I have one chief complaint and that is my Pirelli tires after 17,500 miles are gone. I have been diligent about rotation and inflation, per manufacturer's instructions, but this problem really has me on fire. I to replace them after eleven months of ownership with another brand (Michelin), will cost me $1,200. I have been told by tire manufacturers that the most I could expect to get out of a set of tires would probably be 25,000 miles.
The navigation system is good. The body style is very sleek. It has lots of bells and whistles on the dashboard.
Design more comfortable back seats, they are too hard. Improve the gas mileage. Improve the ride, it's very rough. Improve the tire wear. It needs a CD player in the front dash, not in the rear of the vehicle.
