Didn't like working with VW service centers but you can find local independent service people that will look after you just fine.

Great Car — We have really enjoyed this car. Its stylish with a 'never go out of fashion' look, has looked the same since it came out in 2004, the sister car of Porsche Cayenne but more powerful with an animal under the hood. OOzes with quality. It takes off like a spaceship with an Audi V10 TDI engine that has won formula one races for them. You feel really safe inside like a tank. In cold weather, the seats and steering wheel heat up, each seat with its own comfort controls same with the ac.

The Touareg — touchy brake pedal- a little too bitey for my taste, but it shed speed without alarm, even in panic mode. Good 4wd system for control, but useless for pulling anyone out of a ditch. Overall, a solid 8. Good car.

Luxury And Realism Combined — After owning and looking at several vehicles, I found the Touareg to be a fantastic blend of handling and luxury with that german finish. The interior appointments are some of the finest in the industry. The exterior styling not only, in my opinion, is fantastic but also useful. The overhangs are short for more front and rear clearance, but the base ground clearance (without airt susp.) works for the vehicle. It isn't too high that the vehicle feels like it going to tip when taking it for one of those brisk drives, but just right. High enough to have more than average gropund clearance and excellent road performance for a sport utility vehicle. Overall the fit, finish, and performance have been fantastic. I have had absolutly no problems with my vehicle either, so I would have to say the reliability is fantastic too

Awesome! — I would love to own another one. The maintence costs were high however the comfort, handling, and performance more than made up for the down side. The 2004/ 2005 model years were prone to some defects but they also came with the option for a V8 and self-leveling suspension; both very cool features.

Houareg — This truck is sick! I can't wait to take it to the mountains this winter and take the mountain. Great performance. Loves to drink fuel, a little expensive on the long end. It's a very fun vehicle to drive. I can coax as much power out of this vehicle as I could out of a turbo'd nissan.

Pros

Quick at any speed 310hp v8, gorgeous lines and curves, versatile SUV with fully capable rear and center differential and 19" range air suspension, and luxurious fit and finish inside with firm leather seats and ample standard accessories.

Cons

16mpgs, not an intuitive Navigation System, expensive long-term maintenance - 80k checkup requires new timing belt at approx $1500 labor and parts.

Touareg (love It) — I'm a VeeDuber for life because of the Touareg - An off-road vehicle that could handle as a sports car. Call me preppy, i even bought my wife the Touareg's cousin the Audi Q7. Both SUV's are built out of the same factory in Bratislava, Slovakia.

I Never Want Another Car. — The Touareg can't decide if it wants to be a grocery getter, off road monster, sports car, or luxury car. It's an awesome crossover that has left me in a quandry about what kind of tires(offroad, speed performance, or comfort) what kind of shocks (same dilema as tires) and how to drive it every day.

Get One. — Performance is outstanding. This is only the V6 model with 220 hp, but with the 6 speed tiptronic it hauls it's 6000 lbs. with amazing quickness and agility. It is built like any German vehicle, like a proverbial rock. Exterior looks sleek and menacing, interior is stylish and high quality. Mileage is not great, heavy and powerful equal unimpressive stats. Maint. has been minimal, parts and labour are costly, but you've got to pay for the best. It is definitely fun to drive. I can tow my 5000+ lb boat with 2500 lbs of capacity to spare or drive the Coqu. at 110 mph as if it was a drive in the park. Little sticker on the dash beside the speedo "Do not exceed 130 mph, vehicle equipped with all-season tires". Need I say more.

2004 V6 Volkswagen Touareg 3.2 L....amazing Rig!!!!!!! — I love my 2004 TOUREG V6 AWD vehicle! I was looking at a jeep seeing as I have 4 big dogs and needed something rugid...the touareg was a government trade in vehicle...why they traded it in I still don't understand! Lots of cabin space, auto windsheild-wipers, nice heated leather seats, "peppy" engine with tip-tronic, dual climate control, realible car all the way aroound! My only issues would have to be price to fix parts and the whole premium gas thing but then again, nice cars always take premium so seeing that the TOUAREG is a luxury car, it's to be expected. The car has the turning capabilities of a sedan and the breaks of a porche. Quiet engine, very quiet ride, you don't really hear outside noises. If you like musc you are in luck! The TOUAREG has a great STOCK sound system with speakers in more places then you could imagine for optimal listening. I love going around racing people in it. Just driving the car in general gets me excited! I'm not a snow driver but when we had a big snow storm about a month ago, I sure did learn how with the help of the amamzing AWD machine. The traction control is anything but dull...Amazing if you ask me! Great for all driving conditions.
