2007 Volkswagen Touareg V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
My wife and I enjoyed the car for the first 45,000 miles but since then the Touareg can't make it 500 miles without a check engine light, bad cooling fans, sunroof and windows that mysteriously open by them self,power seats that fail, X brake that won't release, etc. In fact after the last visit to the dealership we could not even get off the lot because the brakes were locked and would not release. It is VW policy that if a item doesn't fail like our power seats which made a horrible grinding noise and would freeze in the down position VW will not warranty the item. VW would just unfreeze the seat and say that it did not fail and we had to live with the grinding noise. BEWARE OF VW.
First 45,000 miles
The day we return the Touareg to VW at the lease expiration. The Touareg simply is not a good value and VW is not a company I would deal with in the future. Make sure you read the warranty very closely. BEWARE
