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


I was compelled to write this review on my 06 Touareg after I saw several misguided reviews complaining about mechanical tire wear, gas mileage and maintenance. This isn't a Honda Civic, it's a $40k+ 5,000 lb AWD SUV with tons of safety features and gadgets galore. Tire wear gas mileage & maintenance are all going to be higher, that's what you should expect with any luxury car. If you're not willing or prepared for higher cost of ownership, you shouldn't have bought one. Buy a Honda. That being said this is my 4th VW and although it's more expensive per visit it visits the oil change half as often and has needed nothing more than oil, one set of tires and front brakes over 40k miles.

Best Features

The best part of this car is the interior, and since you spend the most time here, it should be awesome. Everything is where it should be. The car, um er SUV drives like better than a standard Golf which is impressive for a 5000 lb car on high profile tires. It rules in the snow too.

Worst Features

Rear seating, At 6'3'', there's not enough room for my legs. The mechanics for folding the rear seats are a joke. Also, there are too many warning bells, it sounds like a patient going into cardiac arrest. The software for the shifting needs improvement, and replace the intake with a Nuspeed unit.
