What was I thinking!
By J Walker on


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


Problems: $1800 to replace wires in electrical system (quoted$6000); $175 to replace power mirror knob; $875 for driveshaft; $700 to fix AC and rear latch release; $50 per coil wire, bought at least 8, not to mention plugs--currently been told airbag inflator needs replaced ($580) and catalytic converter ($1000). My father is a car dealer, so I bought this from the VW lease line at the auction w/39,000 miles. Had to replace the coil wires and plugs within 1 month. I've been able to save money on some parts and labor with one of my dad's mechanics. Only take to VW when I have to. Always some light on-tire; airbag; brake sensor (need to replace the sensors). Be prepared to spend $$$

Best Features

Love the look of the car. Drives great, when running right! Plenty of room.

Worst Features

VW buys them back from owners:-) Make them less high maintenance!
