2007 Volkswagen Touareg V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
This mid-size SUV is a great SUV. It is extremely well built, the fit and finish, as well as quality of materials is excellent. On par with what you'd expect from any of the top German automakers. I was a bit skeptical at first. After all dropping 50k for a VW just didn't seem to make sense, ah but when you test drive it you'll love it. I did and drove a V8 fully loaded home. The ride quality is outstanding and the engine is excellent in regards to accelleration and fun to drive factor. If it continue to perform in this manner I'd definitely buy another VW. Let me just say it's not your Grandpa's VW anymore, it a modern art masterpiece.
The bi-xenon lights, interior lighting color of instrument and dash panels, and mostly the 6 speed auto sport (triptronic) transmission, coupled with the V8 it's like driving a sports car/SUV.
Would make the auto liftgate close with the remote, currently it only opens with the remote and you must push a button on the liftgate to make it close. Also, would leave the passenger airbag off light off all the time, currently it stays on if no one is seated in the front passenger seat.
