European Prestige and Class - A true BMW / MB / LR
By Vinod on
2006 Volkswagen Touareg V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
I purchased my VW Touareg V8 after doing a lot of research and testing all the competitors, like the Mercedes-Benz ML 350, Land Rover LR3, BMW X5, and Volvo XC90 V8. The Touareg impressed me the most with its excellent handling (you can do 60 mph round a tight bend and feel totally in control), excellent handling, superb V8 engine, lots of cool technology and excellent VW customer service. Of late, VW has taken a real hit with the customer service, but they must have learned, because the service I received was exemplary. I only have 600 miles on the clock, but it must be said that the VW drives like a dream. My only minor complaint would be the use of too much technology.
This truck is extremely luxurious, a true BMW / Mercedes beater! It has excellent acceleration. The Burnt Orange (teak) interior is very classy. I love the GPS locater.
