Why the 2004 Volkswagen Touareg?

Materials & workmanship

Superb quality. All the steel parts are high quality steel ... unbendable. The leather is best quality I have ever seen ... rugged, but still soft. The ergonomic engineering is like those people were inside my mind!

Cargo capacity

Superb clearance. Superb design on the trialer hitch ... all angles slope away so it is accessible. Also, the hitch is built right into the frame ... not added on like the optional kits on other cars. ZERO effect on cornering characteristics when towing.


By far the QUIETEST truck I have ever driven ... and I sit in New York City traffic jams a lot (noisiest city on Earth). Listen to Vivaldi while crawling across midtown Manhattan ... fantastic!

Interior styling

All I can say is amazing attention to detail! The instrument panel is the best designed and most visible I have ever seen. Single bright attention grabbing colors with clear well inteded signals. Reminds me of the old MG dashboards from the 70s.

Why Not the 2004 Volkswagen Touareg?

Dealer practices

Horrible! HORRIBLE! Buy direct or from a private party if you can. This came from a dealership I felt so slimy and dirty after the experience I had to take a shower. Maybe just this dealer but stay away from Parktown Porsche Audi in St. Louis, Missouri.

Audio & nav systems

Very glitchy. THe NAV system is awful. Poor info database, glitchy operation. Originally had the non-NAV version. Put in the NAV system and then threw it away after 2 months. Kept the old factory CD/radio and added a lar Garmin NAV system.
