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

Review

This car needs to lose 1000lbs. Fast. I just traded a 2006 BMW 330i for my Touarag and love it for what it is. It is a heavy, cumbersome mammoth of a SUV. Truly capable both off and on- road, through any weather and virtually any terrain, even when limited by stock tires. The engine is responsive and flexible, but the transmission hunts for gears way too often. The interior looks well-made; but there are far too many rattles. The gadgets all work together to create marvelous ergonomics, but they're not reliable on a day-to-day basis. Great brakes, fantastic suspension, over-boosted steering. Fuel economy is atrocious, but that's to be expected with a 5200-lb SUV.

Favorite Features

Flexible engine, versatile driving dynamics, great ergonomics, fantastic composure, ride and handling.

Suggested Improvements

Lose some weight! Car feels heavy and overburdened. Improve fasteners and clips on inside of car. Incorporate more modern technology and lighter- weight engine materials to improve fuel economy. Monsoon stereo is terrible. Improve reliability on electrical systems.
