2005 Volkswagen Touareg V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
VW has come late to the SUV market,
great design, good funtion and a
surperb off road vehicle. Here is
what they do not tell you about the
2004 SUV of the year!
Electronics are overengineered as it
relates to warning drivers on a faulty
tire presure system, seat belt chimes
that do not allow drivers to leave the
car running with out being cherped to
death, radio's with on-board map
system must be cleared everytime you
start the car by excepting the
button! Something to look forward to
for as long as you have your vehicle.
One of the best dummy warnings is the
airbag warning, buzzer, then
bell/chimes to tell you it is off
Interior fit and finish, great front
seats and leather treatments. Off
road capibilities are not as good as
my H2, but very close.
Get ride of the bells, chimes and
warning sensors for everything but
critical or real life saving safety
features. How about having a seat
belt warning buzzer go off once you
put it into gear. Would like to get
into the car in a AZ hot day,run the
air without putting on the belts.
