Love / Hate of a V10 TDI Touareg
By Gary on


2004 Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI AWD 4dr SUV (4.9L 10cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


The 2004 Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI is an absolute blast to drive, the V10 engine can only be described as a torque monster. Throw in mid-20's for gas mileage and you have a great package. But...the thing has been back to the dealership every other month for a host of recurring and random problems ranging from repeated air bag faults to vibrations to interior trim that cracks in cold temperatures to power loss at speed. Needless to say, a great package has been marred by a dreadful reliability record. Unfortunately I can't tolerate the lack of reliability, so I must say goodbye to the torque monster.

Best Features

The incredible engine and excellent fuel economy for such power. The interior is spectacular in both design and comfort.

Worst Features

A +$60,000 vehicle that does not have to go back to the dealer 10 times in 20 months of ownership.
