2007 Volkswagen Touareg V6 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
With 42,000 miles the brake pad light came on. The dealers proposed cost for pads and rotors (rotors were required even though no evidence of need) $1690! That is correct nearly $1700 for initial brake work. Oil changes run $130. Any part is extremely expensive. On a BMW this brake job would be free. The care is needlessly expensive to operate.
Include all regular maintenance for 50,000 as BMW does. Reduce the cost of ordinary wear and tear repairs.
