2005 Volkswagen Touareg

Volkswagen made a few minor adjustments to its Touareg SUV for the 2005 model year. For starters, the V10 turbodiesel option was discontinued, so the Touareg was available only with a V6 or a V8 gas engine (not that that's a bad thing). Horsepower for the 3.2-liter V6 was increased from 220 to 240 hp. Both engines were linked to a six-speed automatic transmission.

In addition, the suspension was lowered a bit (on trims without the optional air suspension) and a full-sized rear-mounted spare tire was added. Satellite radio capability and a self-dimming rear-view mirror were also new for 2005.

Beyond that, the Touareg's long list of standard features included a power moonroof, power windows, remote power door locks, heated exterior mirrors, heated front bucket seats, leather and wood trim throughout the cabin, multi-zone climate control, automatic on/off headlights, front and side airbags, cruise control, daytime running lights, and an anti-theft alarm system. Traction control, stability control, descent control, front fog lights, full-time four-wheel drive, and anti-lock brakes were also standard.

Drivers felt the Touareg's ride was firm and its handling was responsive, and that it was especially smooth to drive at highway speeds.
The vehicle's luxury amenities and styling were also cited as positive points. Negatives included the fact that the SUV was "very thirsty" and that the six-speed transmission had "overly short gearing," which sometimes made for jumpy shifting, especially on downshifts.

Can I Turn Off The Warning Chimes On A 2005 Touareg?

The warning chimes are too loud. The front and back sensor chimes, and the seatbelt chimes are most annoying. Can I turn them off or way down?
