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


VW has come late to the SUV market,
great design, good funtion and a
surperb off road vehicle. Here is
what they do not tell you about the
2004 SUV of the year!
Electronics are overengineered as it
relates to warning drivers on a faulty
tire presure system, seat belt chimes
that do not allow drivers to leave the
car running with out being cherped to
death, radio's with on-board map
system must be cleared everytime you
start the car by excepting the
disclaimer "release/acceptance"
button! Something to look forward to
for as long as you have your vehicle.
One of the best dummy warnings is the
airbag warning, buzzer, then
bell/chimes to tell you it is off

Best Features

Interior fit and finish, great front seats and leather treatments. Off road capibilities are not as good as my H2, but very close.

Worst Features

Get ride of the bells, chimes and warning sensors for everything but critical or real life saving safety features. How about having a seat belt warning buzzer go off once you put it into gear. Would like to get into the car in a AZ hot day,run the air without putting on the belts.
