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


High expectations for this model turned into nothing but a series of problems. Drive shaft at 17,000 miles, remove and install prop shaft at 17,000, new stepper motor at 16,000 relocate antenna, replace rear hatch glass latch, 11,000 miles, remove and install differential motor 17,000, defective wheel on board notice on going finally installed new computer system, new tires first 15,000 miles. I could go on and on. The straw at 85,000 needs another drive shaft and possibly a differential, cost 2000 to 6000. Continuing vibration when driving went unaddressed until it was out of warranty. Volkswagen offered us 1500 towards the purchase of a new car. DO NOT PURCHASE A TOUREG!

Best Features

Worst Features

offer customer a viable solution to the ongoing problems. admit to selling a lemon and make the customer whole.

yep. never take to VW dealer, they and VW will RIP YOU OFF for parts. Find good independent mechanic, buy aftermarket parts. VW just screws their customers.
