A great non-grocery getter

2008 Volkswagen Touareg 2 VR6 FSI 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


This is a great SUV but it is not your typical soccer mom grocery getter. Volkswagen designed this to be one of the best off-roaders in the world, while providing exceptional comfort on the road. The 4x4 system is unmatched by anyone in its class and it WILL get you there and back in comfort. This is also one of the safest SUVs on the market. It is over engineered through and through. It may not be the roomiest, cheapest or most readily available but that is not what its built for. Get a Suburban for that. The Touareg mixes a blend of comfort, high class quality, luxury and unmatched off road prowess that very few SUVs on the road even come close.

Best Features

The stellar off road capabilities, truly great. Composed on the road and fantastic quality. Safety and good looks, ours has the optional 19" wheels which add to the appeal. AFS bi-xenon headlights. The optional Dynaudio sound system is very good. Not many on the road. Greatly designed.

Worst Features

The VR6 doesn't have the quickest acceleration off the line but very torquey at higher speeds. Poor gas mileage, unfortunately reliability is not one of its stronger suits. Expensive maintenance but then again, this vehicle is very highly engineered which makes it more labor intensive.
