2005 Volkswagen Touareg V6 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
It's been almost 3 years with my Touareg... it's a keeper. Granted, you cannot be a person on a tight budget for an SUV like this, but it's worth every penny in price, maintenance, and fuel. I truly feel like I can go wherever my heart desires with the Touareg. Yeah, brakes and tires require changing more frequently than expected, but it's a worthwhile trade-off for the performance and amenities on this SUV. Highly recommended. The key is to make sure you can afford to maintain it. If you cannot afford to maintain it, don't buy it. If you can, you will love it.
Parking sensors, motorized fold-in mirrors, seat and mirror setting memory, auto-darkening rear view mrror, AWD, adjustable/removable roof rack, great sound system, auto-sensing windshield wipers, and so much more!
Navigation system, brake life, acceleration from stop, CD changer up front (vs in the back).
