2006 Volkswagen Touareg V6 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Purchased used 2006 Touareg in May 2009. Within 2 days it had to be towed to get the ignition coils replaced. Shortly thereafter it was dead in the street, alternator and battery. The day after the alternator was replaced, the drive shaft went. Fortunately, all this was still covered. Two things concern me: first, did VW knowingly make a vehicle with so many major flaws that they wanted to compete in the luxury market? And second, what does VW do when the "certify" a used vehicle? To date Burlington VW has been good about repairing everything, but even they are starting to consider whether or not we should keep the vehicle. Despite all above, still like the truck, if it will run....

Best Features

Styling, performance, ride. Despite all my difficulties, I find it hard not to love this truck. It is a perfect answer to a man's truck and a Mom Mobile.

Worst Features

Reliability, Reliability, Reliability.
