Do Not Buy A Touareg - Ever
By FedUp on


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


This is the most poorly build cars I have ever bought. It spends most of it's time in the VW repair shop where most of the mechanics know little about how to make the necessary repairs. It's been towed numerous times due to electrical issues and recently had it's 4th battery installed. I had new front brakes put on at 50K which cost $1,000, replaced the original tires at 30K, have a back seat that locks, have a $700 issue with the tire pressure system, have another fault light on related to the air suspension, have a xenon headlight that is problematic. My list of issue is never ending. Please don't waste your money on a Touareg. I'll never buy another VW. The Touareg is a LEMON.

Best Features

Heated seats - they are the only part of my Touareg that has not been for repair to date.

Worst Features

Stop selling the Touareg - it's a vehicle that is designed to fail.
