Extremely disappointed - not recommended
By sk14msk on


2012 Volkswagen Touareg TDI Lux 4dr SUV AWD w/Prod. End 10/11 (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 8A)


I bought my 2012 Toureg certified used with 12k miles on it. The steering wheel shakes at 65-75 mph and I took my car back to the dealer two times already. Every time they returned the car to me, they said the problem has been fixed. New tires, alignment, nothing is helping. There are numerous other VW Touareg drivers out there who are as disappointed as I am.
The steering wheel shake makes longer trips very uncomfortable. I am extremely unhappy with this car.

Best Features

Besides the problems mentioned above, this would be a really fun car. Very fuel efficient for an SUV, good interior space, fun luxury car.

Worst Features

VW needs to either find a way to find to fix this problem or admit that this car has a major issue and offer their clients an acceptable solution. Otherwise I might just have to get a Hyundai.

Hi there. If you've done an alignment, installed and balanced your tires, cleaned off any mud, and it still vibrates, you may have a bent or damaged wheel.
