2007 Volkswagen Touareg V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
Unlike others here, my experience has been very positive over 60,000 miles. This is a late 2007 with the FSI engine. Mileage is 16 to 18 on highway at higher than posted speeds. Issues - generally minor -- have been quickly resolved at various service locations. Reliability has been excellent -- no issues noted. Handles superbly on the road (equipped with 19" wheels and premium tires/air suspension). Heavy solid vehicle which does lead to limited tire life on secondary roads -- generally 16,000 to 18,000 miles. Brakes are excellent but require more frequency replacement than typical. Quiet and luxury feel.
Xenon lights (articulating); air suspension; good engine power (350 HP); sport suspension setting; Tiptronic transmission control
Better tire life -- current Continental Contact seem to be better than prior Pirelli Zero or Michelins. More torque bias to engine. Less weight.
