2007 Volkswagen Touareg Reviews
After 46,000 miles this SUV lived at the dealers. They replace the front power seats, E Brake pedal, engine computer, cooling fans, they could fix the windows and power sunroof opening on their own often in the rain, radio never worked right and got poor reception. We had a 80,000 mile lease for 3 years which we had had on our prior SUV but because Touareg was so unreliable we never took it far from the dealership. Prior to the Tourareg we had a Infinity FX45 which went 87,000 miles and never saw the dealer.
