2007 Volkswagen Touareg V6 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
I only have had my Touareg for four weeks now. It has no brake noise at all. I can't feel the transmission shift at all. There is a major difference in the power of this engine vs. the the past one tested last year. It it totally stable on the turnpike at higher speeds and it puts my Acura MDX to shame in all respects, except for the rear cargo room which I didn't need it anyway. It has a real "Euro" ride. I hope it stays this way.
The seats are excellent. The transmission is the smoothest to date and it has more then enough power. It is a pleasure to drive on the turnpike at higher speeds.
