  • A true SUV that doesn't look the part; both engines and both suspensions reviewed

    Oct 14, 2003 by mkaresh is a Lead on Epinions in Cars & Motorsports
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: V8 performance, off-road capability, on-road ride (especially air suspension), handling (among SUVs with low range)
    Cons: No third row, V6 performance, fuel economy, handling not as good with air suspension, styling

    Summary: Back in World War II VW built a Jeep-like vehicle for the German army, and later sold a similar vehicle as the Thing in the U.S. (As a kid I loved those.) Yet the company took its sweet time getting a modern SUV to the American market, finally ... read more

  • An All-In-One vehicle

    Mar 20, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Reliability, comfort. Quiet ride. Safety features.
    Cons: Blind spots. Weak remotes.

    Summary: I purchased my 2004 V6 Touareq back in September of 2003. I was one of the fist people to own this great SUV in my area. It has leather interior and almost all the extra options (no GPS). The looks and the idea of owning a German-engineered vehicle were ... read more

  • no-tour touareg

    Dec 14, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid body construction; good power, well-designed interior
    Cons: Unreliable, guzzles gas, 6-9 recalls or service bulletins first year, abysmal service

    Summary: Have had this V8 with lots of options for almost 18 months. For the money it has great power and handling, and a decked out interior. Now for the bad part. My first V8 leaked oil into the engine within the first two weeks; the dealer took it back and ... read more

  • Less than the sum of its parts.

    May 16, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality, quiet, off-road ability, attractive, V8 exhaust note (really), sales department service.
    Cons: GPS, a serious defect for those who need a serious off-road/tourer.

    Summary: I bought the Touareg because it seemed to be perfect for my business: land investment. It is an impressive off-road machine and a serene--almost silent--road tourer. The build quality is excellent, better than my 1999 Lexus it replaces. All this ... read more

  • Great luxury SUV, Good value with some minor bugs

    May 6, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid, luxurious, advanced technological functions, feels like a luxury sports sedan, excellent off-road capability.
    Cons: minor bugs, VW service dealing with bugs and luxury customer expectations

    Summary: V8, Reed Green with Beige Interior, with Premium Plus package, including NAV system and Premium Plus package. Have owned a Treg for 2 months as of writing this review. All in all, I'm extremely satisfied with the vehicle. There are some minor bugs ... read more

  • VW's Touareg is a very good vehicle

    Dec 14, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The standard features including 10 airbags or air curtains that protect front and rear passengers.
    Cons: The center rear headrest blocks the view from the rear mirror.

    Summary: VW did very well with this vehicle. Co-designed by VW and Porsche, the Touareg is a bit more attractive from the front than the Porsche version, though it lack the Porsche Cayenne's powerful engine. I test drove and or researched a number of ... read more

    Pros: stylish interior, great sound system, lots of room for 5 adults, great price tag.
    Cons: 6 cylinder

    Summary: The new volkswagen touareg is a great car that fits the wallet! I just bought one and im very happy with it. It has to be the nicest interior I have seen in a sports utility compared to the BMW x5, and the Mercedes ml. And on top of that, its cheaper t ... read more

  • Touareg Kung Fu is Strong

    Oct 2, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Powerful V8, sporty handling, flexible suspension, plush and quiet interior.
    Cons: Station wagon styling, no in-dash CD player, no DVD navigation, heavier than the USS Nimitz

    Summary: This is one of my favorite movie lines of late. I have obviously substituted the name of the vehicle here, however, I think the title is fitting based on the (admittedly short) hour I spent with the vehicle. I recently drove a 2004 Volkswagen Touareg ... read more

  • Best SUV for the money

    Oct 2, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Styling, very luxurious, great handling and acceleration, extremely quiet and smooth powertrain.
    Cons: Poor gas mileage, only a single disk CD player in dash

    Summary: I looked at the Volvo XC90 when I first decided on an SUV, in fact, I put a deposit down on one. However, after waiting two months, the dealer pushed my expected delivery date back two more months, I decided to reconsider my options. Fortunately for me, ... read more

    Pros: Great features (on paper)
    Cons: alignment nightmares, electronic problems, VW corporate refusing to accept responsibility

    Summary: After a huge amount of research I turned in my X5 for a 2004 Touareg. Mt initial experience was great. I can deal with the constant error messages (Fault gear running workshop - what does that mean?) and recalls. However, the straw that has broken my ... read more

    Pros: Comfy front seats, screens for back windows, floor lighting
    Cons: terrible computer system, clunky feeling, no spare tire, no leg room, always in the shop!

    Summary: We had this car for a year and a half. In that time we were at the service center almost every month. It had so many recalls to do with safety issues. We also had a huge problem with the internal antenna, which made locking and opening the vehicle ... read more

    Pros: V10 Diesel TDI - Very fast, great handling, comfortable, good gas mileage.
    Cons: Terrible GPS-Navigation system. Buggy electrical that the dealer is clueless about repairing.

    Summary: One of the fastest cars I have ever driven. Even beats the Q45 V8. The V10 Diesel is very quiet and has better than average gas mileage, about 20 mpg, combined Highway & City driving. Great handling and corning at all speeds. Comfortable seats and is ... read more
