I am a huge VW fan and the styling and feature for the money are what made me buy this car. I wanted a 2nd/winter vehicle and thought this would be the perfect choice to compliment my Passat already in the garage. There have been mechanical issues with this car that should have been caught during the pre-sale inspection and after a few trips back to the dealer (the last visit left me without my Touareg for over a week) I am keeping my fingers crossed it's fixed.
The car I purchased is a VW Touareg V8. Runs great. Fairly large vehicle. It weights over 5200 #'s so there is a mass effect.
Gas milage is terrible. Averages about 17 mpg. But is has plenty of power. Has a tow of over 7000#'s.
Drives nice, comfy seats, quality leather. Adjustable everything.
Big tires so holds the road. Goes great in the snow. Very good brakes. Good HVAC controls and confort.
Touareg has a separate website for enthueist. Good information.
Will buy a Touareg again maybe a diesel next time since it has much better milage without scrifices to the comfort and durablity.
