2008 Volkswagen Touareg Reviews

2008 and up Touareg's have numerous newly designed parts and so forth, and I am finding my 2008 Touareg (also called Touareg 2) is living up to the re-engineering. VR6 engine, overall driving experience, and interior are overall in excellent shape and performance at 50K miles. Great vehicle to buy as 3-5 year old certified preowned, with option to purchase extended warrenty afterwards, and reasonable price. Hard to find TDI versions because its obvious they hold their already higher value, even longer, and owners are obviously not selling them means something. Best to find a VW dealer which also sells Porsche and Audi because they will have more experience with this SUV, and treat your Touareg right.
