2006 Volkswagen Touareg V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
The Volkswagen Touareg is just plain fun. I got it recently, but already drove in the snow up to Lake Tahoe and went up winding highway 1 north of SF. The ride is just awesome, it has great handling, is easy to control, and is very comfortable even going through those curves. I got the blue silver which has a more silvery color at night and more blue color during the day. People turn their heads when you pass! My buddy said my truck was so much better riding and looking than his (Mercedes ML350). The ride is also very quiet which is great when you like classical music or soft jazz.
The interior design, silent ride, look, handling, power, automatic windscreen wipers, and interior blue/red lighting.
It has somewhat limited rear visibility. Improve its fuel economy.
