Pros: Luxury and Performance
Cons: High maintenance costI have owned my 2004 Touareg (V8) since new and enjoyed every moment of ownership. All aspects of the SUV (power, construction quality, comfort, etc.) are outstanding except the high cost of wear items, e.g. brakes, rotors, etc., but this is a small price to pay for a vehicle that provides so much joy to drive. Although the Touareg weighs in at 5300 lbs., the 310 HP motor will provide plenty of power to propel the SUV from stand-still and roll-on in a manner that almost makes you believe you are in a sports car. By the way, I also own a BMW M5 that I enjoy driving but for all purpose driving I pick the Touareg.
Nice car with great mileage & performance
Pros: paddle shifter
Cons: quattro not available in the US.Being an avid Audi fan & owner, we traded an allroad for this little diesel. Too bad it isn't available as a Quattro. With 30,000 miles since we bought it in mid March, we have had no trouble. The first few months, we traveled a lot with a new GrandBaby in North Carolina. Saved about $300 / month in fuel cost over the thirsty allroad. It lacks a few amenities that we are used to in our TT and RS6. We will trade when the quattro's become available.
