All Hype and Big Let Down
By Gnat on
Vehicle2005 Volkswagen Touareg V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
ReviewI bought the '05 Touareg off a dealer lot thinking I was saving money on a loaded Luxury SUV with 6,000 miles on it. The first night in my garage the battery died and the key was stuck in the ignition. Then a couple of weeks later the sunroof leaked. Then I noticed moisture in the rear tail light. The SUV's engine sounds rough at low speeds and the disc brakes grab to a startling stop. Oh, and the tires, be ready to replace them at about 15,000 miles. Now for the worst part, the gas mileage, LOL. You better be prepared for a shock there. I averaged 10.75 mpg city and 14 Hwy! Now you ask, why did you buy it? All impulse and the ride is nice, but VW has a sub par product here for a lot of money.
Best FeaturesThe radio and nice comfortable seats.
Worst FeaturesGive it better gas mileage, address all of the items in my review and then some. Who engineered this thing?
