I've owned one of the first '04 V8 models in CA and it had problems. After 18 months of problems VW upgraded it to a FULLY LOADED '05 model and added $8000 in extra options FREE OF CHARGE!
I tow a 7,500 lb toyhauler trailer through 110 degree deserts and 8,500' mtn ranges - no sweat! This is truely an impressive piece of work.
It has many extra features on-board that really come in handy like the 6 speed tranny - great for towing - and the 4-way climate control - great for 100+ degree days.
Engine power is more than sufficient with the 315 ponies, even when towing a heavy load.
Handling is excellent with the 4-way pneumatic suspension - very sports car like - and it comes in handy when launching a boat to raise the car above the water on the launch ramps. Stability and performance is also excellent - 4motion all-wheel drive handles deep sand, water, ice/snow and steep terrain well.
Luxury is also up to par with the big dogs like BMW, MB, Lexus.
Everyone who rides in my Touareg is very impressed and so am I. With this car I truely feel that I'm getting MORE than I paid for! I only wish the V10 diesel was available in CA in 2005 - it would be a nice upgrade for towing at the 7,716 lb limit.
