I don't know how reliable the newer versions are though. They look nice but fully optioned out to a similar level of an overland / summit pushes the price well into the 60s.
I had a 2008 (which we got rid of for the JGC), and I couldn't agree more. I loved the Touareg, but it wasn't worth the headache outside of warranty. We had an extended warranty, and ended up selling it with about six-months left. Was sad to see her go. Was happy to get the Jeep.
One reason we skipped the newest gen Touareg (T3) was because all the bells/whistles were pretty much eliminated. It had half the prowess it did before.
SORRY ALL FOR THE OFF TOPIC POST...Back to your regularly scheduled HA discussion.
