What Our Members Are Saying about the Reliability and Durability of the Volkswagen Touareg

Volkswagen Touareg Reliability and Durability: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr SUV turbocharged 310hp 4.9L V10 Diesel
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
With so many gadgets, I worry about the reliability....and VW does get dinged for reliability in CR.
2004 4dr SUV 220-horsepower 3.2L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
There are a lot of electronic do-dads, all very nice to have but the reliability of a great number of them is/hes been less than stellar, with the majority of touaregs having to return to the dealers numerous times during their first year.
2004 4dr SUV 310-horsepower 4.2L V8
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
Had a computer problem that took forever to get fixed; ALso spent a riduculous amount of time getting the trailer lights powered. Bottom line - although the tow limit is 7500 lbs, trying to power normal US trailers causes the computer to go haywire.
