Cost of Maintenance, However, I do not have many problems. Had my car nearly 6 years and did not have to have anything major done to it.

Love My Touareg — I think this would be a great family starter car! Now that my children are growing, we need more room. I am looking for something with a third row. However, my car is paid off and I plan on keeping it as well. That is how much I love this car. It is very dependable!

Cons

Average fuel mileage, maintenance costs can be high

Ultimate Suv Go Anywhere Vehicle — Car is almost perfect. I wish they put 8 speed transmission in these things. Besides that I have no real complaints. The power and comfort is unparalleled. A very utilitarian vehicle that is fun to drive. Rare find and in exceptional condition.

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

Touareg — This is a fantastic vehicle to own and drive,I think the Tuareg is the better of the 3 vehicles Porsche Cayenne,Audi Q7 and VW Tuareg. It is a solid affordable vehicle that has a great owner retention opposed to the other SUV.

Pros

Fantastic handling, incredibly comfortable and well-designed interior, and all of the thoughtful touches that VW engineers pull off.

Cons

Abysmal fuel economy.  Expensive maintenance costs, particularly with the huge disc brakes.

My Favorite Mid-size Lux Suv — Perhaps the most comfortable of the mid-size SUVs, it certainly handled better than any of the alternative. Equally agile in every type of weather I've thrown at it. Once I acclimated to the sticker shock of ongoing maintenance costs, it secured its spot as my primary driver.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

2006 3.0v6 — Good performance for an SUV, stong V6 engine with surprisingly good acceleration, generally well built but with a few little faults that dealer doesnt seem to be able to fix. Very bad dealer service in Slovakia. Very capable off road, specious and comfortable. I would recommend this car to anyone.

2006 Vw Touareg V10 Tdi — The VW Touareg V10 TDI is so powerful and solid. It is the best car I have ever owned, and that is saying a lot because I have owned a lot of really top notch cars. It's lots of fun to drive and it is well-loaded with lots of yummy technology. Mine is in a lovely blue-silver color that is hard to find, and is no longer available in the newer models.

Vw Touareg 2.5 Tdi Se. — Love the looks, ride and power of the 5 cylinder engine. Don't like the extra road tax.

If You Can Live With A Few Quirks, This Is The Ultimate Driver's Suv — This is the ultimate 4X4. Forget the Rangey and forget Clarkson's or anybody who's British reviews. This car has saved my life on a couple of occasions. The only negative is the hesitant turbo in sticky situations (got me in a mess once) and the instrumentation/ computer. Finally after sending it a few times to the garage, they've got it fixed. Now its awesome! That V10 engine growl is almost like sex.

Sweet — I have owned this SUV for over a year. This thing runs great, only 1 warranty issue so far, the horn burnt out. That said I was on my way to Kingston and called the Dealer and they scheduled me right in! This things hauls butt, a little hard on fuel but smooth as silk. I have the air suspension and it really softens the ride. A buddy of mine has one without, I can notice the difference.
