2006 Volkswagen Touareg V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Having come from four GMC Denalis ('01 through '04) I thought I was getting a baby Porsche at a great price. What I have is a vehicle in search of a gear and with lousy torque. This V8 and six speed transmission acts more like a rubber band unwinding when you have to boot it at any speed above 30 mph. The sport selection helps some but it just won't get out of its own way. Let's talk about the wonderful auto lock that locks all the doors whether you like it or not; or how about the lag in opening the locks from the keyless remote. Finally you have to love the feature where you unlock the car remotely and it relocks itself about 30 seconds later. What's up with that? Mine has no satellite radio and the ties were gone in 15,000 miles.

Best Features

It is easy to park and once you're moving it drives well.

Worst Features

It needs more torque, satellite radio, an easier to use navigation system, longer lasting tires, and fewer rattles.
