2005 Volkswagen Touareg V6 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


This has been a great truck. It drives great and very comfortable. It's not like any other SUV. It handles better than most cars. I manage to get about 19-20 mpg on the highway. It's no econo-car, but it's not too bad considering. Compare that to a Lincoln Navigator. If you want to drive this vehicle in anything other than gas-miser mode (or pass someone), you need to switch the transmission from "D" to "S" or shift manually.... which is fine for me considering current gas prices.

Best Features

This truck has a great ride, it handles like a car, it's very quiet (unlike other VWs), it gets pretty good gas mileage for a 4,500 pound vehicle, and the fake leather interior is surprisingly nice.

Worst Features

The annoying seat belt chime that you cannot turn off needs to go.
