2005 Volkswagen Touareg V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

There is a recall pertaining to the the fuel pump. If looking to buy a Touareg don't be dissuaded from purchasing. The recall is free and done at a VW Dealership. We have had that done. The vehicle is a great design, so many air bags and the comfort/luxury conveniences are really nice.

Review

2012 was a good car (my son's car with 120,000) he still drives it. My 2005 with 72,000 miles IS great.That's from personal experience.
Comfortable ,solid, feeling safe in it.Comfortable seats and plenty of room.
Lock the differential and you can go anywhere.

Review

This is a terrific SUV. Yes, its a gas hog, but the power, control, and creature comforts out weigh that particular negative.
I bought this to haul my elderly handicap parents, and their scooters around town. We all love the smooth ride, AC, and
Its turning capability. Its easy to climb in and out of, and we find that even though we do not plan on having more than three adults at a time, we are all happy with the space provided inside. Check timing belt, and tires. Expensive to replace.

Review

Like previous posts I would not recommed this car to anyone unless they like paying for rental cars and expensive repairs. Just had my drive shaft replaced at 76,000 miles for $1,300. (Tip: search the web for shops that sell re-manufactured shafts for $450 to $350).
At 52,000 miles the internal speaker in the instrument cluster went out, the VW repair is to replace the instrument cluster, the part alone is $1,000.
It does handle nice in the snow but its a gas guzzler and tires (expensive ones) seem to last only about 30,000...we're due for our 3rd set at 76,000 miles.
Also need a slew of special tools to repair if your a do it yourself person. Very noisy, due to wind, with the window open


Best Features

handles nice in the snow. Nice interior.


Worst Features

Make it cheaper to maintain.
