2005 Volkswagen Touareg V6 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
Review
I purchased my 2005 Touareg due to VW's reputation of quality and safety. At 1,200 miles it started to make horrible metal on metal sounds from the transmition that the dealership could not duplicate because once the transmition would warm up it would stop. Starting at 2,200 miles the headlights would occasionally decide to take a break. Again the dealership said all was well. Finally at 4,400 miles the SRS Airbag system failed. According to the dealership this means they will not deploy in a collision. The earliest time they would be able to repair it, but it would take two weeks. So it sits in the garage until then.
Favorite Features
The looks and AWD.
Suggested Improvements
Build a quality product. I will be trading in the Touareg on something domestic with better MPG and reliability as soon as the airbag system is fixed. Buyers be ready for anything!
