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


Saddened to write this: Potential buyers beware, dont let the streamlined good looks of this car fool you; its not as fun to own as one would think. For starters, insufficient interior storage- be it for your cell, sunglasses or misc supplies (definitely not a mom friendly car). The owners manual is HUGE, poorly written and time consuming to find what you are looking for and you will be looking. And it lacks basic answers. "Warning" lights are a constant. Needed new brake pads at 12k miles- $600 bucks! An oil change is $100+ and gas, OMG! Also, this car is not intuitive- things are not where they should be and I find driving it annoying on most days. I SO wanted to love this car...but DON'T!

Best Features

Safety...feels like I'm in a high- performance German Tank and I love how secure it feels. The exterior appearance.

Worst Features

The tire pressure light; in So Cal where the temp changes from morning to night, my exclamation light is on daily! Need a sunglasses holder, an area deep enough for a cell phone, larger middle console, less or more space between seat and center (lost a lot in that space and cant get it out)...
