2007 Volkswagen Touareg V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
We have the 2007 V8 with every option available.
Can't say enough about how much we love to own and drive it!
Where else can you get a "car" (remember it is a unibody) that tows nearly anything a person could want to tow. It weighs about the same as a Suburban or Tahoe, so the ride and handling are superb. The factory roof rails run the entire length of the roof which makes mounting boxes or a bike rack a breeze.
We bought a certified used Highlander prior to the Touareg and only owned it for two weeks before we forced the dealer to buy it back. The engine had what Toyota considers "normal" piston slap and the drivetrain whined like it was extremely worn out, also considered "normal".
Turning lights, adjustable interior footwell lighting, air conditioned (very cold) glove box that holds a bottle of wine, plastic front fenders, powerliftgate with remote control, offload nav screen that shows the direction of the front tires, interior bumper sensor lights, low range transfer case, air compressor with attachment to air up all 4 tires, loading suspension height that allows me to wash and dry the roof with out a step stool.
The only dealer in our town is completely incompetent.
Never go to Dick Hanna VW in Vancouver WA.
I cannot stress this enough, they are total crooks.
VW is seriously limited their customer base by not correcting the issues with the management at Dick Hanna dealerships.
