"This is one of Germany's finest suv. I had it for 3 years, it's a joy to drive. Driving this elephant on roller skate all over central California and Bay Area I get 27-30 mpg. Best of all is that you don't see one on every corner. If you own one of these 9th wonders of the world, you know what I mean. YES I will buy an other one. DAS AUTO ( bulli )"

"I don't understand all of the great reviews, unless my Touareg is unique and having issues where others are not. First, I love the overall style and comfort of my 2015 Touareg. It drives on the highway like a dream. But, when driving in city traffic or cornering, the transmission stutters, "Bangs" into gear after the engine revs and the transmission cannot figure out which gear it should be in, then finally slams into gear lurching the car forward. When cornering the transmission goes in and out of 2nd and 3rd gear causing it to feel like the car is going to stop, then lurches, then downshifts and it feels like its going to stop again. I have had this car into the VW dealership 4 times, with about 30 days of loaner cars. They have "involved" a VW factory mechanic, they replaced a valve body, which made the issue worse. They are now claiming the car is working per VW specifications. I opened a customer care case, they guy told me there was no issue and hung up on me. My second issue is with the infotainment system. It takes 4-5 minutes to start up. I will be out of my driveway, through my neighborhood and onto the freeway before it's done booting up. The dealer told me they could disable Sirius/XM to make it better. They download the entire Sirius catalogue at every start causing the delay. I have not had this issue with other cars."

"I have not had any problems with my 2011 VW Touareg. In fact this is the finest and best engineered car/truck/rig out there. After owning it a few years you really start to appreciate how well it is built. Water drains off perfectly, the paint is durable and easy to maintain. With over 400 ft pounds of torque it is a real power to reason with. Handles fantastic. Speed??? this vehicle is fast off the line and cruise at high speeds with comfort. This touareg is above current technology. It corners like know other and remains level on turns taken rapidly. I can't say enough about the VA touareg"

Cons: "rotate tires @ 5,000 miles"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The Lux TDi diesel version with Vienna leather seats provides pure pleasure to drive and ride with the full function passenger seat - hard to come by in other vehicles. Head rest slides back for neck comfort. In VW style it sticks to the road in avoidance moves. The TDi diesel is strong and feels secure on the interstate. What a cruising vehicle. I feel 100% secure and confident when my wife drives away in it. She absolutely loves it for comfort, handling, storage, and much more. Best vehicle so far. Nothing too complex and overbearing in the controls.. they keep it simple. Constant 30 mpg on the road at 70 & A/C. Great for adult passengers in the back seat. Beats most other front seats."

"This is my six VW and by far is the BEST. TDI is the way to go,,, you can get 40 miles on hwy if you are under 65 miles...with no ac..How many SUV with that power can do that ? Only the 2013 VW Tuareg TDI...Best TDI for the money and awesome overall quality."
