2007 Volkswagen Touareg V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
We have 43,000 miles on the Touareg and still enjoy driving the car. We especially like the quiet solid ride. Handling is shape with good braking. Transmission shifts smoothly in drive drop down to the sport position and the performance gains are note worthy. The power is excellent with a average of 17.5 mpg in SoCal driving. We just replace the front brake at the VW dealer $600 the back brakes should be good for 60,000 miles. The tire were replace at 36,000 miles. The GPS lacks detail but the backup camera make the GPS a fair value. Much better car than the FX45 we traded in. The interior has shown no signs of wear, the heated seats can bake your backside in short order. GREAT SUV
Handling, power, size, quality and dealership service.
Upgrade GPS, center console needs redesign, VW could eliminate the power life gate. In dash 6 disk CD changer, the CD changer behind the back seat is a hassle.
