2006 Volkswagen Touareg V6 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
In less than 20,000 miles of city driving it is necessary to replace front and back brakes at a cost of $1800.00. This is considered normal according to the service department. I have driven SUVs for 20 years and have never had to replace brakes. Volkswagen offers no assistance and only warranties for 12,000 miles, which is useless. I would warn any potential buyers of the Touareg that they can expect a $1800 brake expense every 12-20,000 miles.
improve brakes and advise purchaser that they will incur this expense every 12,000 miles.
