- gas mileage
I can drive this SUV like a sport car, and still have plenty of passenger and cargo room for 5. Performance and Handling are superior to any other SUV (other than it's brother, the Porsche Cayenne), and fit and finish, complemented with a beautiful line, make this the best SUV for the money anywhere around. . ....read morehide

- Very Comfortable, lots of neat features, great GPS-Map, fantastic stereo, comfortable ride.
- Gas Milage is poor.
We really like our 2005 V-6 Touareg. We bought this VW with many options including the navigation system, 6CD Changerr, leather heated seats, towing package, etc. The VW rides very nice and has a great turning radius, is easy to park and comes with a really neat untrasonic system on both the front and rear bumpers that illuminate and give an audible sound if you get too close to objects when backing out or parking. Very impressive sound system and we love the computer features....read morehide

- Powerful, stylish, uncommonly utile, broadly talented
- Expensive, VW service not yet up to tier
The gargantuan engine is the centerpiece, hauling the massive vehicle (and up to five overweight occupants, their gear, and a boat) with easy authority and astonishing athleticism. The temptation to sprint wildly on every takeoff is overwhelming, as is the urge to "shoot it out" with every potential challenger on the road (probably the biggest liability of ownership). All this while making the best fuel economy in the line. The exterior is smooth, tasteful and distinctive. The interior is very high-quality, pleasing without being gaudy, and simply beautiful at night. The package of accessories and amenities is generous and thoughtful. Most satisfying is the overall competence of the vehicle, which is eager to step into any role the driver projects onto it, be it sports car, luxury sedan, long-distance tourer, family truckster... or mountain goat. You do have to pay for the privilege, but it's good value for money, and the price should help retain a measure of exclusivity. I had to buy the car from an out-of-state dealer to get the colors and options I wanted. After shipping it, I discovered the dealer had cracked the rear tail light while installing the tow hitch. The service manager at my local dealer didn't want to "own the problem," and I had to make many phone calls to arrange for the replacement to be taken care of. The Info Center went haywire after the local dealer tried to activate the OnStar system, but they got it all straightened out while I waited. Every other moment spent in the car has been exhilirating!...read morehide

- i love the fuel economy
- it's da right price
This is my dream car if i want to have a SUV......I think the bmw x5 is to hard and not so comfortable to sit in and the Mercedes m-class has a ugly shape to it and im glad that VW got the SUV that best fits me and my dad and mom.
