2007 Volkswagen Touareg V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
Unreliable, bad service, poor build quality, low resale value, gas hog and these are the best hings about the Touareg. I lease this SUV for my wife and for the first 40,000 miles we were mostly happy with the car but for the last 20,000 miles it has been a horror story. Everything from the sunroof and windows which seem to have mind of their own to the engine control unit have failed. There times when we were not even able to get the car off the dealers lot after service without another failure of a system or part. The VW Touareg and the VW services is sub par. Do not buy this car it will fail you at the worst possible time.
Good handling, power, good tire wear and brake pad life. All things others complained about.
Service, engineering and build quality. VW simply does not build good cars, nor do they have quality service.
