Steering Wheel Shake

2013 Volkswagen Touareg TDI Lux 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 8A)


I bought a 2013 Touareg TDI Lux a month ago and it has been in the shop for 17 days with an irreparable steering wheel oscillation. It is still in the shop.

So far VWoA has advised the local dealer to try the following: road force balance all wheels, swap wheels from another car, change all four tire to Michelin Latitudes, replaced front drive shafts and replace steering rack. None have remedied the problem.

Other owners have reported the exact same issue and have had difficulty getting satisfactory resolution.

Search for "Touareg steering problem" to find more. Or go to ww.touaregsteeringshake.com. I don't any more hassle, I just want a new car.

Best Features

Tasteful styling. Absence of cheap chromed plastic parts. No flashing light show on the dashboard. Solid construction.

Worst Features

This is a complex and expensive vehicle. VW needs to support the owners of this vehicle if they hope to have a viable entry in this market.
