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.

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.

Pros

Very powerful

Cons

expensive upkeep

55

High Maintenance Costs But Fun To Drive — it holds the road well, great acceleration, frequent sensor malfunctions, regular drivetrain breakdowns, comfortable interior, good looking, good utility vehicle, great towing, if on the right roads it is very fun to drive, okay gas mileage and very expensive maintenance

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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.

Raw Diesel Turbo Power — The V10 TDI towed a Boeing 747 airliner in 2006. It was been voted as the second most powerful and capable SUV designed. Second only to the Q7 V12 TDI. I towed two smowmoblies up the Vail Pass in Colorado and she did not break a sweat.

I Like It — never misses a beat. No problem- when i think about trading it in for a saloon it will rain or snow and then it cannot be beaten. Less footballers wives than an X5 , more reliable than a rangerover sport. average 30mpg so for of a car of its size and stature it is ok

AWD

Fuel econmy not that of a smart

Great Vehicle — I Love my Touareg. Amazing vehicle! I love the AWD of this vehicle. not the fuel econmy of a Smart car but un-stopable in the winter. never had an issue getting stuck. Great at low speed or high speeds. 7700 lb towing capacity isnt bad either. wouldn't trade it for anything other than another Touareg!

Pros

Safety, off-roading

Cons

Heavy car, needs more power, expensive service, a bit boring

Safe But Annoying — The thing about this car is that it really depends on where you drive it and how. Now has a low rev gear box and individual wheel drive ( or what ever it is called ) for off-roading, so it should be good out there. On normal roads the Touareg is huge. When driving it you can feel how the wind catches the cars side. The car has loads of grip, since it ways closer to 3 tons, so it is safe in the snow and on ice. However, when you run out of grip, there is no chance of a recovery. In the cities you have either got to be a master of parallell parking or rich enough for car parks, and even in the parks you need to scan the place for the bigger parking slots. The build quality varies, apparently, with how much milage you have. Our car has been fine until about 160 000 km, when everything decided to brake at once, and the service station didn't help when they broke the rest of it while fixing the other parts. Bottom note is that it is a safe car, but you need money and patience to own it.

DEALERS & VW!!!

Great Car If You Dont Need It All The Time. — This SUV had many many issues, from airbag issues to just poor quality. If VW and the dealers that sell them stood behind this vehicles they would have been great, however that isn't the case. Because of that I don't believe I will ever own another VW again.

2004 Touareg V8 — I like the car just not the dealerships or the warranty. its been in the shop over 30x and always a nightmare dealing with the dealer. Danbury VW of Ct sucks. The care does have alot of nice features just dont buy the first year it was out. 2004. gas mileage is not very good. It is a very quick SUV and solidly built and many little gadgets.
