I own Touareg 2004. Great car with high maintenance cost. Any visit to Work shop cost more $1000 ( of course other then regular fuel change etc).
I own a 2004 Touareg, loaded and only serviced by VW since new. I would not expect a vehicle at this price to have so many problems. I would not buy another. 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 only one possible way to get in: driver's side. Nothing at the trunk or nobody could find a way to get into the damn SUV.
Don't ask my wife about this vehicle because she will say NEVER AGAIN, sorry Volskwagen...!!!
I own 04 Touareg V8 fully loaded w/Air Susp/Nav/Heated seats & upscale radio/CD charger. For 6 yrs now, am still loving the air ride,the music and overrall design of this SUV, my children loved it since day one. No reasons for change inspite of it's expensive maintainances unfortunately at the dealer here in MD. I will buy this car again & again any time. Am considering to up grade to the newer 2011 Touareg or her bigger sister,Cayenne.
Anyway, the new potential monthly payment alone on these babies are scary when you think of it.
Stay safe to you all Touareg Lovers

Worst car I have ever owned. Numerous manufacturing and design defects. VERY expensive to maintain and repair, terrible gal mileage. Spent 19 days at the dealership the first year, and still like to visit regularly. Some things are great, as they should be for a car that cost close to $50,000 in 2004. Electronics are particularly crappy.
Great car, two detractions - The button controls covering and the tpms costs too much to replace after 5 years
They made as close to perfect as I could hope for. But for the price they should have done more research on the longevity of the soft touch rubber button covers. Additionally during either brake assist or traction control it feels as though the vehicle is moving forward (as though it is under power) but my pressure on the excelorator is either constant or decreasing. This sensation is felt during extreme slow turns while on incline
