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


This has been a great SUV. I read a lot of disgruntled reviews which you would expect to see on this site, but my experience has been satisfying with this truck after driving it for four years. I use it to tow a race car each month and it has great towing power. I haven't had any of the electrical or tire issues like others - I regularly rotate and align the vehicle which has definitely helped. Put new tires on at 25K miles. This SUV also performs extremely well in the snow or winter driving conditions with its AWD system. If considering the V6 vs. the V8, stop considering and immediately get the V8. This SUV is way too heavy for the V6 and MPG difference is nominal.

Best Features

V8 power, SUV luxury, Porsche chassis & Audi engine with $15K discount, strong towing capability up to 7700 lbs, great in foul weather, comfortable ride

Worst Features

Annoying door chimes and beeps, fold- down seat mechanism could be improved, more standard features for the price
