"I don't know quite where to begin. I purchased my used, 2004 V8 AWD Touareg in November 2014. She is luxurious, comfortable, and sexy in every way but sure is darn deceiving. After three days of bliss, I started experiencing issue upon issue with my used Touareg. Upwards of $5,000 worth of pesky electrical work needs repairs, and today I had to watch my baby get hauled away on a tow truck to the shop because my key fabs stopped working and car won't start. She is beautiful and I love Blair (yes, she has a name), but I am frustrated with the endless issues that continue to arise. It may have been because of a bad dealer who didn't perform the 100,000 service check like they said they did. I'm hoping after these problems are fixed that it will be smooth sailing but I'm skeptical. I would not recommend buying a used Touareg."
Pros: "LOVE the way she corners, even at high speeds."
Cons: "Navigation is not good"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I LOVE my Touareg 2! I have never once had any kind of issue with it. I have a very bad back and the comfort of the vehicle is A+, I can ride in her for hours. She is a beauty to look at and the body style is very stylish. There is plenty of leg-room for four and the tailgate is a breeze. I take very good care of her because I wish to keep her for years and she wants to look as good as she drives. My only complaint would be the navigation system, it's not user friendly, in fact I hope that VW has upgraded that."
Pros: "fun to drive, good off road, comfortable ride"
Cons: "Very expensive to maintain, German prices"

"I love driving the car. Very comfortable off road or on highway. Very well appointed. However, shares platform with Porsche Cayenne, taking it well above VW prices for repairs & maintenance. For that reason alone I would never buy another one."
