  Touareg CR 190TDI Launch Edition

Excellent affordable luxury

Supreme comfort cruising. Quiet, smooth, powerful, safe and feels far smaller than its large size. Amazingly frugal fuel use. Show details

It was fantastic, but injectors have failed

I love my Touareg, but 6 weeks ago an injector failed, then 2 weeks later another one went, and yesterday, I am told that 2 more have gone. I am so sad and disappointed, this is costing me an absolute fortune…. 2 more to go and that will be the full sett replaced. Is this just mine or a common problem ( 2016 model ) Show details

Had one 7P…sold my CR19..and bought another 7P

Have had a 2008,2014,2019…and now a 2017.
All used as a family 4WD,boat puller and off-road.
Great cars..particularly the 2008,2014 and my ( newish) 2017.
Having bought a CR7..I found it too carlike..and sold it and bought another 180kw TDI…
The 2008 and the 2014 did the Birdsville track and many other serious trips..
It’s a pity that VW could not jump the hurdles and have the 7P accepted for what it is..a seriously well engineered,well equipped,industrial, luxurious 4 WD . Show details

Best vehicle I have ever owned (and I have owned quite a few)

Bought new late 2017, I love this car. Quiet, smooth, reliable, great technology, excellent sound system, the ideal vehicle for both our long trips from south coast NSW to central Victoria, and trips around town. We change cars every 3 years or so (2 car couple), and previously owned most Japanese brands, and while we have had a good run from all, this VW vehicle is a step above. Headlights are far superior to any other car we have owned, typical 8/100 around town and 6.5/100 on highway, great towing vehicle (900kg boat), and a pleasure to drive (even better than a Honda). Next vehicle will be a definitely be VW Show details

Getting old but going great!

2011 model with over 320,000 km on the clock and goes like a dream. Pulls our 3 tonne off road caravan with ease. Very economical and lovely to drive. We love it. Show details

Absolutely, Brilliant Motor Vehicle

I am a 71 year old male businessman ( background as, Automotive Engineer ) from Perth, WA who has owned and driven nearly EVERY 4WD SUV or sedan over time. Normally, I swap out cars when 12-18 months old! I acquired my R-Line V8 Touareg new in January 2014....have travelled city and country over 110,000 klms. Simply put, I cannot imagine driving anything else...there is no SUV which comes anywhere near this vehicle for comfort, handling, torque/power, effortless towing, solid build quality, simplicity, quiet, with an enduring body shape. I would thoroughly recommend buying one preferably, with good VW service records... Show details

Awesome vehicle

Purchased to pull our 2.9t caravan which it does comfortably. Fantastic interior, love the massage seats, engine/transmission smoothness, fuel economy best 5.2L/100klm (no van), worst 13L/100klm (vehicle/caravan fully loaded), long term average 7.4L/100klm (over 10k klms). Only concern is the space saver spare capability once away from populated areas and on poor roads. Also the suitability of standard 20 inch wheels. Our options include Innovision pack and panoramic sunroof.

Once over the initial setup for each driver, the Touareg becomes possibly the most comfortable vehicle I've ever driven. The first service has just been completed, no issues or warranty concerns to date. Show details

VW service

Firstly this is my first VW and I started with the best in my opinion. I have a 2015 V6 tdi 180 kw which I purchased in November 2017. After one month I noticed the day time driving light on the driver side was not working and dealer said it needed to be replaced at a cost of $1700. I contacted VW aust. and after complaining about the cost and reliability the review the car’s service history and agreed to replace it free of charge. That good customer service and I love everything about this car, the ride the fuel consumption the towing capacity just to name a few. Show details

Fantastic Car (But)

My 2016 Touareg has fading window trim . Vw don’t want to know about it.
Shame really as the car is the very best of some 30 cars of ever owned.
I have treated it exactly the same as my previous 2009 Touareg and never had a problem.
It is obviously an issue that VW should make good.

Great Car! Love its features and comforts!

I bought a 2017 V6 TDI. Great car I have ever driven. Very comfortable specially, I love air suspension, spacious cabin, leather heated seats, heated steering wheel. Also, It has got plenty of power and quick to speed up even though it is a diesel engine. I usually drive the car for long drive at the weekend. I have been driving this car for more than 1.5 year and do not have any issues so far. Show details

I have a my 14 Touareg 3.6 fsi, an error code B12A122 “Left indirect ventilation flap motorUpper limit exceeded. And code B12A222 “Right indirect ventilation door control motor UPPER Limit exceeded. Both codes are static so they can’t be deleted unless action taken... Air con appears to work fine but with middle vent on open and close alternately,

Bought a 2018 Touareg. Mechanics pre purchase inspection: “ Unable to get fans to spin to push out any air from vents at the time of the inspection. The heater and air conditioning are both not working.”

Thoughts?
