2004 Volkswagen Touareg Problems

Tire Wear Can be Problematic

Tire wear can be problematic, very dependent on driving style. Our technicians recommend regular tire inspection and replacement when necessary.

Coolant Leak from Thermostat Housing

A coolant leak may develop at the thermostat housing, under the intake manifold. Our technicians tell us that revised parts are available to correct this concern.

Odor from HVAC vents

Condensation may develop in the heater case which can cause a musty odor from the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system.  Our technicians tell us a cleaner is available for the heater case. Also, the drain system should be checked for debris.

2004 Volkswagen Touareg Recalls

Seat Belts Do Not Lock Child Seats In Place Securely

The mechanism in the seat belts that locks a child safety seat into place may not operate properly. Dealers will permanently install a clip in either of the affected rear outboard seat belts and provide an owner's manual insert free of charge to resolve the concern.

Rear Seat Belt Latch Bolt Loose

The rear seat belt buckle may not be attached securely to the body. Dealers will inspect and replace seat belt buckles as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System Malfunctions

The wiring harness for the tire pressure monitoring system may be mis-routed, causing the wiring to rub on the parking brake mechanism, resulting in a short and possible fire. Dealers will inspect the harness for proper routing and correct it free of charge to resolve the concern.

If you are going to buy used and it has not been serviced by VW, I would recommend staying away from it as the expense is great to own. At this price range the options are many.
My wife owns this vehicle for a year or so and she felt in love at first site until it started "visiting" the mechanic WAY too often for the same problem over and over again. Cannot shift form PARK. Many parts have been replaced, it works for a while and AGAIN same problem. Also locked us out recently at a shopping mall. Could not get it open neither with the remote nor with the key as it has ...
