2004 Volkswagen Touareg SUV V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

After years of driving a Toyota Land
Cruiser I opted for something
different. Given the generally
glowing reviews of this vehicle, I
decided to try my first VW. Bad
decision. The LC performed above
expectations while this vehicle
typically disappointed. I've sold
this vehicle after four months &
bought a new LC (actually a Lexus
LX470).


Best Features

Lots of power


Worst Features

Poor stereo; poor electronics; poor wiper blade system; exterior wind noise

Review

Great ride & build quality.. Have had
intermittant problem with accelerator
hesitation that the dealer has not been
able to correct. This hesitation has
caused many near miss accidents at
interscections.
Problems with air ride
suspension....bags will deflate without
warning, causing fault message on in-
dash display. will correct itself
after 10-15 minutes
Fuel economy is much less that expected
(15-19 mpg higway, 65/70 mph)


Best Features

Solid construction and fit/finish are excellent


Worst Features

Increase horsepower in V6 and/or reduce weight so that engine is less strained. Improve dealer service training on computer diagnostics

Review

No other SUV can touch the interior
styling of the Touareg. The quality of
parts and materials makes the Lexus RX
330 look cheap. The outside is stylish
without looking like aftermarket parts -
the RX 330 chrome tail lights - come
on! SO HIGHSCHOOLISH. The Tourag is a
bit touchy in low speeds and gets 15
mpg, but, those are the only lows.
Beats Mercedes, BMW, Lexus and all
others. VW is also cool - who needs
those other stuckup brands? My Touareg
gets looks from all ages. Get one!

Review

Haven't had it very long, but it is the
best designed SUV that I have seen or
driven. I drove a Toyota Landcruiser in
Africa on several occasions and loved
it, but would have liked to have had
this T-Reg. Only question in my mind is
reliability. All these behemoths get
poor gas mileage. We all should have
known this when we purchased these
heavyweights! Navigation system could
use some software changes to make it
more like what I have seen in
Toyota/Lexus vehicles. The dealer told
me Navigation software upgrades are
coming. Not many automobiles make me
want to go out into the garage to get
one last look before going to bed, but
this one does!!


Best Features

Solid feel, ride height, interior quality and design, seals around doors, features, great handling, looks better than a Cayenne and costs much less, etc.


Worst Features

Needs body side moldings to reduce dings. Sound system should be better! Little more power in the V6 and availability of a turbodiesel smaller than the 10.
