2007 Volkswagen Touareg V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
Great car for the first 48,000 miles but since then the car has been in the shop every 2,000 miles with check engine lights. The cooling fans, EMC computer, parking brake peddle, several emission controls, radio, windows and sun roof controls have failed and it is in the shop now for new engine coils. My wife will not drive car out of town because we can not trust the car to get her home.
German engineering maybe good but build quality and electronics are sub par. Interior finishes are nice to the touch but the soft touch feature to the knobs is peeling. Electronics are failing. Don't buy a used Touareg!!!
