2005 Volkswagen Touareg V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
Review
I love my Touareg! It had a few issues early on but were fixed as necessary. It is heavy and all wheel drive, so it's tough on tires. I ditched my factory tires at 11k miles for a set of Nokian WR G2's and haven't looked back. Really the best tire for the Touareg. I had an Expedition previously, so gas mileage wasn't an issue. The FSI V6 and V8 on the newer models are a significant improvement over 2004-2007 models.
Favorite Features
V8 is awesome! It tows my 6,000 pound boat far better than my '97 Expedition ever did. And off road ability - center and rear diff locks! I love the looks I get from Jeep drivers on the trails of N. GA and Tennessee!
Suggested Improvements
CD based NAV is a pain but works well. I wish mine had an MP3 jack and deeper cup holders, both of which were fixed in newer models.
