Bought the Touareg for work related driving. Smooth, powerfull, and fun to drive. Handles very well for an SUV. Routinely getting 29-31 mpg with the diesel. Tows our sailboat effortlessly. No problems the first 20k miles
V6 Turbo Diesel. Great mileage. Comfortable ride and sharp handling.
Radio sound quality could be better. Poor AM reception. Key fob hypersensitive with alarm going off 25% of the time when locking. Limited rear visibility due to huge headrests. No Adblue gauge, the idot light just comes on when near empty. Bigger sunroof.
Flew from NW Montana to California to buy this hard to find TDI Touareg.Quiet and comfortable interior for all day driving.Factory Bluetooth is so helpful!Passing effortless with the diesel with a ride like a cloud.Set the auto climate control and had total comfort in 105 degree heat.Got 25.5 MPG on a 1100 mile trip. Have been getting 21.5 MPG in town driving.This is a beautiful machine!
Impressive passing and towing power with equally impressive fuel mileage.Still quite comfortable after long drives and has very attractive interior trim.The exhaust smells like a clothes dryer!
At this price level VW should have factory installed 6 disc CD changer and splash guards!
Have had the SUV for only 2500 miles so far. My "dream vehicle", thanks sweetie! So my 2500 mile review: great ride with comfort, style and plenty of power! Bought the TDI for it's towing capacity and gas mileage. Currenlty avg. 21 MPG for both city/highway driving. Bought the luxury and technology package and haven't looked back. Ride is exceptional on highway. Great in the mountains! This is a ski mobile!! Took it up to Big Bear in S. California and was great. As with other reviews don't know why it doesn't have memory seating?? Very luxurious inside. Nicest vehicle we've owned by far. Inside is small as well as back seat. Don't think it will be a problem for family of 4.
Navigation system ( great!!)/power/driving experience/ exterior/VW features inside and outside. Back up camera along with motion sensors. Heated steering wheel (love this) and seats. DVD player with wireless headphones (bought this separately).
Needs memory seat for driver and passenger! Cost of Diesel. Potential cost of upkeep, AdBlue and maitenance ( but worth it).
This is an excellent SUV diesel which has exceeded my high demands and expectations in every respect: Power, comfort, style and reliability. I have 20,500 miles and virtually no problems have surfaced. Eventually I will probably buy the newer model, but I plan to keep this for many more years because it is so well-executed and realized. Dealership support for the routine service has been exemplary. It is superior in most respects to my former BMW X5 and is more evocative of the Sahara than Wilshire Blvd--a good rugged simple feel with less "look at me!!" attitude than the BMW.
