2006 Volkswagen Touareg V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Controls somewhat cumbersome, transmission is too tight, shifting can be abrubt. But this cars ride and acceleration are tops. I use mine outdoors often, ability to raise body got me through some tight spots. Also has decent tow ability with it's heavy build and motor. the ability to fold seats down allows packing camping gear for 3. When on the road, acceleration in this engine is excellent and mine gives a slight throaty roar during shifts due to the sport gearing. This tranny is DIFFERENT, self shift or select sport gear or just a standard ride. Great city/country car that is reliable.

2006 Volkswagen Touareg V6 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

This SUV really drives like a car until the weather gets bad and then it drives like a very good SUV. The good comments about how the Touareg handles are not overstating it. I use a hitch mounted bike rack to haul bikes around and the Touareg works great for that. I don't have to worry about how primitive the trailheads will be.


Best Features

Overall handling, winter handling, quality of the interior, looks, and the interior smell, love the smell of a Touareg. Makes you forget the MPG.


Worst Features

Audio system. The JBL system in my 98 Expedition blows the base Touareg sound system away. Simplify the controls.

2006 Volkswagen Touareg V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

At first I was hesitant to buy this car because of poor ratings for the 04 model. I'm glad I did. It gets better gas mileage (18 mpg) than the 02 Explorer, had every possible option, sounds outstanding when hitting the gas, and the stereo with navigation is close to what I have in my house. This car drives like the Porsche for about 15K less cash. Excellent capability this winter in the snow, excellent handling.


Best Features

Heated seats all around, backup camera, AWESOME stereo, and navigation is fun to use. Change the language to French or Italian for a twist.


Worst Features

Putting the rear seats down takes some getting used to, but plenty of room is made. The parking sensors beep sometimes when you're in slow traffic and close to people in front or behind. But there's a button to turn it off.

2006 Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI 4dr SUV AWD (4.9L 10cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


Review

This is my second Touareg. The first was a fully loaded 2004 V8 which I really loved. It replaced my Range Rover Classic. Did everything the Rover did, for $20K less and towed better too. With 100K miles on the V8, I figured I would take advantage of the current discounts on the 06 TDI. The vehicle is identical except for DVD navigation on the new one and of course the V10 twin turbo diesel. The V8 was very fast, but this thing flies. Better yet is the fuel economy.


Best Features

Towing capacity. Great interior quality. Good looking design. Power!


Worst Features

Make satellite radio a standard option.
