Great performance, i found in similar to driving a Porsche 911. I was originally looking at the Porsche Cayenne S, but then realized that the Touareg was extremely similar, and I actually liked the interior and exterior better on the VW, not to mention the price. I know the Porsche badge might mean a lot to some, but it didn't equate to an additional $15,000 on a used car....especially not one that I found more appealing. v8 is a must and very powerful and responsive, the v6 was too sluggish for the size and weight of this vehicle. Great in the cold weather regions as well

Bought our '05 back in November with 91,000 one owner miles and couldn't be happier. Truck drives and rides like it has 20,000 miles and the interior shows no visible wear for being an '05. Gas mileage sucks, but knew that when we bought it and didn't buy it to run up and down the highway anyhow. Maintenance is expensive, but that is expected when buying a high end German vehicle that if the money is spent on maintence, these things will run forever.

A very capable highway and local vehicle with a sport-truck personality. Plenty of room and very comfortable for long trips as well. 2nd Row Seat fold-down could be easier to accomplish (hence the 4-Star Interior Design rating,) but in light of everything else I like about this V8 4X4 SUV that is a minor issue to me. One of the most attractive SUV's I have seen. East Coast blizzards of 2010 could not stop this vehicle under any circumstances.

VW Props

by from Quartz Hill, CA on October 21, 2011

I love my VW Touareg! You can go fast or ride slow so everyone can see you. The only down fall is the 91 gas. I am not a fan. If they make a more fuel cost efficient one I would buy all over again.

Leaky roof!

by from Central valley California on April 11, 2010

My toureg has a leak in the roof that the dealer can't ever fix. Also, the 15MPG isn't very good. Otherwise, it is a real nice vehicle.
