2011 Volkswagen Touareg TDI Lux 4dr SUV 4WD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 8A)


Was in the market for another SUV, yet wanted something different, not cumbersome nor boxy.
Previously had an 07 BMW X5 - liked the car, yet did not like performance.
With gas prices fluctuating high/low, I considered the diesel.
Drove the BMW diesel, yet it was $9k more than the VW.
My car is new <300 miles, yet in town I avg 19.5 and Hwy 26 mpg.
As the car engine breaks in and I get my foot off the pedal, I know mileage will improve.
Seats are very comfortable, interior is well designed and Navigation interface works very well.
The LED headlights are distinctive and the back end of the Touareg is in my opinion...nicer than Porsche

Best Features

Size, diesel performance & mpg, style, off road capabilities, auto-trunk hatch, Navigation, Stereo and HUGE sun roof

Worst Features

For a $50k car, the steering wheel should be electronic and not manual. If you live in a city where the sun shines hot, the sun roof does not do a good job of keeping the heat out, so I took the car into a window tint dealer and had both driver side windows tinted and sun roof....now, it not only looks better, but the tinting on the roof makes a BIG difference.
