Nice reliable car, high on the maintenance side.

Great vehicle, plenty of power and a pleasure to drive. Only cons are costs associated with maintenance. Oil changes, air filters, brakes and rotors all are more expensive than domestic car brands. Handling is great and I love the comfort of the interior. It also has a number of intuitive features like wipers that sense when it is raining.

My 2008 Volkswagen! Heated leather, power seat, moonroof and tow package.

I bought this vehicle due to the heated leather seats, and the cool sunroof! The seats are very comfortable, there is a back support adjustment. The gas mileage is not the best, I average 18 miles to the gallon. I also have a tow package, which makes it nice for hauling trailers for wood. The color of my Touareg is black, with chrome.

Automatic windshield wipers and the lights that move with the steering wheel.

My car is a little quirky. The back hatch sometimes closes on me when it wants. Have to replace the switch. And the back hatch height sometimes resets on its own. But other than that it has been an awesome SUV since I have owned it. I really liked it so far.
