2007 Volkswagen Touareg V6 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
We're thrilled with Touareg. It drives like a car and is solid - nothing is loose anywhere. The doors and sunroof shut tightly and very it is quiet inside. That seems to be the VW trademark, lately. This truck is really well made. Its power delivery is smooth, but it's a heavy car. So be patient. I've had three Japanese cars - a Nissan, Infiniti, and a Lexus and four German cars - a BMW, Mercedes-Benz and VW. Personally, I find German cars to be more sturdy, functional and practical. Some might say Japanese cars are more refined, sophisticated...etc. The Touareg exemplifies all these qualities without losing its German character.
The amazing power outlets, both for 12V and household electrical plugs. If you know a Touareg owner, ask for a demo or goto a dealer.
Offer a hybrid? We love German cars, but more American destined cars need to come hybrids.
