2010 Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI 4dr SUV 4WD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


Love this SUV.
Purchased at 38k miles and have driven to 41k.
Have NOT towed much, and that is a large part of why i purchased this car.
7700lb capacity is impressive.
My list of praises is nearly endless.
I'm focusing on gripes to inform the consumer.
Consider everything else perfect.

Best Features

sturdy feel to most parts. Doors, tailgate, hood, knobs, etc. Dash layout is great. diesel strong and fun.

Worst Features

Parking sensors - annoying, but can turn off Leaks on back hatch - crazy flaw. pours water from tailgate to interior when hatch opened 12v outlet switched - none are always on Battery under seat - jumpstarting?? No electric brakes - 7.7klb towing capacity, but only if you get electric brakes, which dealer doesn't sell. Acceleration - eversoslight delay before accel Biodiesel - should be rated for B20. Disappointing ony apologetically rated for B5. Doors auto lock - annoying Lights always on - can't turn off headlights Intermittent wipers Phonebook directory - can't load all contacts Towing transmission - no "overdrive off" button Seat belts grab when pulled quickly. Annoying.

sabotva, Please read the owners manual. Most of your gripes will become praises.
