Great overall and I sold these in the Valley for a while so I know some inside gouge. The "Soft Touch" treatment looks great at first but does peel and looks bad after a few years. All major mechanical issues (rear diff locker and Xcase motor) were fixed under warranty with improved parts. Lost the A/C blower a few months ago but a very easy fix (DiY). A/C system leaves a bit to be desired in hot climates. Get harder compound tires like BFGs else you'll pay big every 30k. 98k miles and strong with the V6 gas engine. Avg. mileage is 20 highway, 16 in town. Not as bad as it could be but looking for a 2010 V6TDI to replace it. Unfortunately, this vehicle was lost on most of the USA's driving public. VW poured a TON of tech and research into it and most of the rubes driving it could care less. It'll whip a Land Rover and any quasi SUV Acura, Infinity or the other posers put out. The 45 degree climb/descend and the 30 degree off-camber ability is scary to be in when you do. Not even most hard core Jeep guys have 3 diff lockers on their modded rides! It's a beast and for what you get, the value is INSANE! Cast door hinges, (not stamped metal) triple watertight door seals, wax flooded panels to prevent rust, aerodynamic NACA venting on the lower panel and a turning radius like a shopping cart. The list goes on. 2011 saw a dumbing down consistent with the rest of the VW line. Not as cool but cheaper. Viva la Touareg!
