2005 Volkswagen Touareg V6 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
Was lucky enough to buy a 2005 V6 with only 8000 miles, now up to 12000 miles. Free of any problems so far. I love to drive it; it is luxurious with a quiet ride, has an impeccable interior, great handling, feels solid and very safe, definitely underpowered with the v6, recommend driving in the S mode, transmission and shifting is great, heavy and poor acceleration especially when compared with my 2006 X3. The stereo system is disappointing at any volume above 21 (especially the bass). If economy is not your concern, buy the V8 or V10 diesel version.
Elegant, luxurious interior with great ride, solidity and safety. I love driving it over the BMW X5 of that year.
