I purchased this vehicle brand new online 6 states away, flew there and drove it back home, I have 2 200 miles on it, so far, it is a real pleasure to drive, acceleration is very good, torque is amazing, gas mileage up in the 30's on hwy, or better depending on driving, 740 miles on one tank easy.
It is a very smooth and quiet ride, the soundproofing is very good, cool factor is that you dont see too many on the road, it feels like it is glued on the pavement, corners like a dream for 2 tons +, truly, what a car!
Now for potential buyers understand that you are purchasing an older vehicle, check windshields with fingernails for scratches from storage, I guess (had to replace mine $800) before buying as it will not be covered by warranty.
The parts have to be ordered , often from Germany, because it is a somewhat rare car, to consider if you break down have to wait for parts and only have 1 car.
Other problem I've encountered is dealership lack of knowledge about the Touareg at least at VW Milwaukee North, where they wont honor the factory warranty I was told it was expired!
Make sure to use your vin # when ordering parts .
I have no regrets so far, just a few minor glitches to take care of but way worth it, I hope I'll get years and miles of enjoyment.
