Won't buy another VW

2005 Volkswagen Touareg V6 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)

Review

I was initially really excited about my Touareg, but became suspicious after a road trip that included lots of error messages. When I brought it to the VW dealership to have it checked out, they were not willing to take the time to find out what was going on and told me to come back if it happened again. After a short year and a half we had to put $3000 into it for new tires, breaks, rotors, etc. None of which were included in the warranty although it was leased, I should have known, but was disappointed anyway. The lights go out while driving periodically for no apparent reason. The lining on the door handles are also peeling. Fuel economy is poor, but we knew that. The CD player is poor.

Favorite Features

It is a nice looking car.

Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy, quality CD player and speakers, standard navigation, electric seats, knowledgeable and efficient people in dealership repair shop.
