Report: Tire Wear Can be Problematic
Volkswagen Touareg Problem
Average Mileage: 30,825 mi (19,651 mi - 42,000 mi)
Tire wear can be problematic, very dependent on driving style. Our technicians recommend regular tire inspection and replacement when necessary.
Brought my Toureg in for the 20K service and I am being told my alignment is out and I need to replace all my tires because of inside and outside uneven wear. The service tech said he recommends front end alignment every 5-10k because of the roads in Spokane. I told him I thought that was included in the 10, 20, 30K service and he said no. At the 10K service nobody from the dealership mentioned a front end alignment. I think tires should last more than 20K no matter what type of alignment. I am very upset!!!

My rear passenger side tire has prematurely worn out and will need to be replaced. This is the only tire that has worn down yet I must replace the two back tires simultaneously so as not to cause damage to the alignment. I just bought all new tires less than 6 months ago. I anticipate that this will be a constant problem and am thinking of getting a new car.
