2007 Volkswagen Touareg V6 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
I love to drive my Touareg and drive about 20,000 miles annually. I enjoy the style, handling, and overall quality of the vehicle. That said BEWARE! The brakes last only about 30,000 miles and cost about $1,600 to replace! The tires are pricey and burn out at under 40,000 miles as well. A small front rattle is common, but minor/easily fixed with felt. Don't get me wrong - I love the ride, but for the money I expect more in services and extras that VW just wont deliver. Check out the Audi SUVs for a better deal.
The fantastic design and fun ride.
It should get better gas mileage (15 mpg is average). An iPod adapter would be useful.
