2005 Volkswagen Touareg V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
Owned this vehicle for less than a year. Initially we were very impressed with its road manners. The brakes had been done before delivery however we had to have them done again (no charge to us) I drive 12km return to my work. 4 months later, brakes require work. The battery is done. Most of the reviews on these express the same issues. Our other vehicle is a Tahoe and we have had zero problems. We are currently trading it in for another Yukon/Tahoe. Unfortunately this is not a car I would recommend.
Solid and stable on the road. Great interior.
Brakes!! Electrical!! Quick note on the gas mileage, it is what it is. People who have these types of vehicles should know that it is not a economy car.
