"This is my second VW. I had a 2001 Passat that was junk nothing but problems so I vowed never to go back. Then I started looking at the 2008 Touarege 2. Very nice car. I down sized from a Ford Explorer but the VW is so much more stylish and classy looking. I have a black one and it has the shiny chrome accents. I love it, however I do wish they would make it with a panaramic sun roof like the BMW X-5 and things like that. The drive is very smooth. I get a lot of stares when I pull up and park. Last I like that I do not see a lot of my vehicle while I'm out like the BMW's, Mercedes, things like that. I have not had it that long so time will tell."
