2012 Volkswagen Touareg TDI Lux 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 8A)


Quite possibly the best vehicle I have owned and this covers GM, Chrysler, Ford, Austin Healy 3000, Volvo. Volkswagen Group(Porsche & Audi). (Ford F 150ecoboost not included, The Beast).
Fuel Mileage is as advertised...20-29mpg overall. 2(2 -5,800 mile rt's from California to Ohio, via southern and northern routes[28.5mpg avg. Speed to 105mph]. Tire wear(Pirelli) is at the half way point, brake pads are at 9mm. Vehicle speed control maintains speed when ascending long grades(ie, New Mexico and Arizona)Not true when decending.
Was given a rather late model Infinity SUV while waiting on delivery of Vdub. What a joke! Like a buckboard with confusing controls. 6 inch watery marsh, no problem.

Best Features

Engine view. Sound system. Vista View roof. Seat positioning. Sic Torque when Turbo diesel spins up. Cornering. Seating position. Shift lever position. Parking.

Worst Features

Gps map view does not come up to standards as those on my previous vehicle. F150 W/sony system, although it will get you to your destination. Cutain will not close with Vista Roof open as 2009 Tiguan would.
