2004 Volkswagen Touareg SUV V6 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

The base T-Reg is the one to
get. If you are willing to forgo the
pwr seats (one more thing to break),
nav (ditto), and leather this is a
bargain. I got mine with the
upgrade stereo and HID for 36K.
Actually, the "leatherette" looks
great will hold up better than the
real thing esp. with pets/kids/etc. In
Europe, this seating is very common.
The V6 has plenty of power & decent
mpg. It also lacks the drivability
probs of the V8. With std sunrf, trac,
multi airbag, HID, heated seats, auto
dual zone a/c & 4500 lbs of German
steel, VW must be
losing money on every one. This is
truly a BMW X5 for the price of a Ford
Explorer.

Review

Thoughts after 4500 miles: great
initial impression, but as I drove the
vehicle daily I found it was the small
stuff that bugged me. Wipers chatter
& won't effectively interval; in-dash
CD occassionally won't eject disk;
stereo sounds very poor;
always "beeping" to alert you of
something; rear entry requires remote
electronic release; harsh
acceleration; etc ...

Traded in a Land Cruiser for this
vehicle & it was a mistake.


Best Features

- styling - handling - v8 power


Worst Features

- improve electronics - improve stereo - improve wipers "pay attention to the small stuff"

Review

We test drove a Porsche Cayenne in
March 2003. It was a good compromise
for my husband's dream car and the
practicality of a growing family.
However, we knew the Toureg would be
released soon. We are glad we did
because we virtually have the same car
as a Cayenne S for $20,000 less! My
husband still has a Porsche on his
dream car list -- just now he's back to
a car for mom & dad someday. . . .


Best Features

We like the veratility of the Toureg. It has the sportscar feel for my husband and the security feel for me. It feels just as sturdy when we "put the petal to metal" as when we are navigating about town.


Worst Features

Don't limit the counsumer to one choice of interior molding. The teak color is rich but it needs teak modling to match.

Review

There is a lot of reading and getting
used to. The transmission is
unbelievable with 6 gears and auto or
standard shifting. The car is solid and
perfect body work and the motor is
powerful. Interior is perfect and the
dash lights at night are Blue and Red
for easy reading. Headlights are
excellent with high intensity the
brakes are excellent the best yet.
There is some residue on the wheels
from brake dust but a good washing will
fix that. Im very satisfied and so is
the wife.


Best Features

Dashboard lights at night,High intensity headlights,Transmission shifting in auto or manual, blinkers on outside mirrors,rear hatch either opens window or hatch and moon roof for air.


Worst Features

I do not like the model name TOUAREG as it means a Wandering Nomadic African Tribe so I took the bezel off.Now it is only a Volkswagen for me

Review

This vehicle has caused numerous
problems for me. The technology is
constantly misinforming me of things.
For instance, the tire pressure
monitoring system tells me my front
driver side tire is flat. A big
exclamation point is constanly on my
screen. The tire has been checked and
is perfectly normal. My advice
is....give Volkswagen a few more years
to perfect the gliches in this vehicle
before you buy one.
