2007 Volkswagen Touareg V6 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I bought a 07 Touareg a little over a year ago. At first I was very happy. But after a year a lot started happening to it. Little things... But what topped it over, after 34k miles I now have to drop 1700 for 4 new breaks and rotters. Buyer beware... if you buy a touareg you will be dropping a ton of money in it to keep it up - do yourself a favor - go buy a Acura or a Toyota... Stay away from the Touareg and your wallet will appreciate it...


Worst Features

better roters

Review

My wife and I enjoyed the car for the first 45,000 miles but since then the Touareg can't make it 500 miles without a check engine light, bad cooling fans, sunroof and windows that mysteriously open by them self,power seats that fail, X brake that won't release, etc. In fact after the last visit to the dealership we could not even get off the lot because the brakes were locked and would not release. It is VW policy that if a item doesn't fail like our power seats which made a horrible grinding noise and would freeze in the down position VW will not warranty the item. VW would just unfreeze the seat and say that it did not fail and we had to live with the grinding noise. BEWARE OF VW.


Best Features

First 45,000 miles


Worst Features

The day we return the Touareg to VW at the lease expiration. The Touareg simply is not a good value and VW is not a company I would deal with in the future. Make sure you read the warranty very closely. BEWARE

Review

We have 43,000 miles on the Touareg and still enjoy driving the car. We especially like the quiet solid ride. Handling is shape with good braking. Transmission shifts smoothly in drive drop down to the sport position and the performance gains are note worthy. The power is excellent with a average of 17.5 mpg in SoCal driving. We just replace the front brake at the VW dealer $600 the back brakes should be good for 60,000 miles. The tire were replace at 36,000 miles. The GPS lacks detail but the backup camera make the GPS a fair value. Much better car than the FX45 we traded in. The interior has shown no signs of wear, the heated seats can bake your backside in short order. GREAT SUV


Best Features

Handling, power, size, quality and dealership service.


Worst Features

Upgrade GPS, center console needs redesign, VW could eliminate the power life gate. In dash 6 disk CD changer, the CD changer behind the back seat is a hassle.

Review

I got mine since may 2008. I have v6 tdi version. Fuel consumption around 26 mpg in city- 36-40 mpg at highway. Not bad for diesel. If compare to 16/21 for us v6 version, I have done test drive with VW staff. It's amazing what they do with touareg! We were at Nice off road and on airport take off lane. Definitely will take my to us next time.


Best Features

Off road capabilities, low fuel cons, 0-60, sport regime on transmission, handling, ESP, V6 TDI engine ))) 500 Hm))


Worst Features

almost none...

Review

With 42,000 miles the brake pad light came on. The dealers proposed cost for pads and rotors (rotors were required even though no evidence of need) $1690! That is correct nearly $1700 for initial brake work. Oil changes run $130. Any part is extremely expensive. On a BMW this brake job would be free. The care is needlessly expensive to operate.


Worst Features

Include all regular maintenance for 50,000 as BMW does. Reduce the cost of ordinary wear and tear repairs.
