2010 Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI 4dr SUV 4WD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


Review

Overabundant torque completely satisfies all overtaking needs. Having owned a 2004 V8 Touareg previously (18 mpg tops), I hardly miss its full throttle induction roar, instead embracing the low-revving oomph of the turbo-diesel, while averaging 27+ mpg.


Best Features

The 3.0 V6 TDI


Worst Features

Better OEM tires than the miserable Continental Pro Contacts

2010 Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI 4dr SUV 4WD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


Review

We've had it now for one year and it has lived up to everything we could have hoped for. It's an incredibly smooth ride with pretty decent pickup especially considering its a 5000 pound beast. I feel very safe driving and feel as if I'm surrounded by luxury - though there are a few things to be desired. The nav system, like most factory navs, is mostly accurate but has out of date store/gas registries. The system takes about 10 seconds to start up which means if i need the cam., I have to wait. We got the air package and combined without the low gear case it moves effortlessly in 18" of untouched (or compacted) snow. I recommend at least the tech package - it makes the car feel "cool"


Best Features

1) Air suspension. 2) Air suspension. 3) Adblue+Diesel gas mileage 4) Air Suspension 5) 600W Dynaudio Sound 6) Low gear case 7) Air suspension 8) Bixenons put on a "show" when you turn the car on 9) multi function in dash display 10) Sport mode accel. 11) Push start +keyless entry


Worst Features

VW still has its electircal quirks. The bluetooth chip died after a month, but they replaced it unders warranty so no biggy. Exterior body style is outdated, but they fixed that 2011, but unfortunately removed the air suspension as an option which means i'll be going elsewhere next time.

2010 Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI 4dr SUV 4WD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


Review

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


Best Features

V6 Turbo Diesel. Great mileage. Comfortable ride and sharp handling.


Worst Features

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.

Review

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!


Best Features

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!


Worst Features

At this price level VW should have factory installed 6 disc CD changer and splash guards!

Review

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.


Best Features

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).


Worst Features

Needs memory seat for driver and passenger! Cost of Diesel. Potential cost of upkeep, AdBlue and maitenance ( but worth it).
