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


I have owned this car for a year and a half and it is a blast to drive. It begs "drive me faster." The keyless entry is great. The beeps are so anoying though, like the selt belt, passenger air bag off, and others. If I run into a store my wife has to bucle the seatbelt to make it stop dinging. The VW service department where I purchased my car is terrible. I needed new tires after only 6,000 miles, and my car can't stay aligned. So it has great performance, but the misc. problems make me want to sell it.

Best Features

The engine noise and how it's easy for my wife to zip around in.

Worst Features

Give it less dinging and use better trim components that hold up to wear.
