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


I had no idea it would eat tires every year! Gas mileage was known, but gas wasn't $4.50 at the time. It's been in the shop so much, my wife wants me to sell it now! Service sucks, they can't order the correct parts half the time so we have to go back multiple times for stupid stuff. I will NEVER buy another VW again. I tried, and it was a failure. They say the car is 'heavy' and that's why it eats tires. B.S. My dad has a huge van loaded with his contractor stuff (much heavier than the Touareg) and he gets 30k miles no problem. I think it's the 4WD system chewing up the tires. I'm actively looking at a replacement even though it will cost me $. I like to keep cars 12+ years but not this time
