I love the Tuareg but the maintainer is expensive.

The maintenance is very expensive. Car rides well. I love the look of the car. It is very spacious and perfect for traveling with pets. Plenty of room. Fold down seats. Love having Bluetooth in the car. Great gas mileage. It has very comfortable seating. Love the style.

Good choice for household of 4.

Comfortable and very stable on different road situation. The car is good for a household of four and will be very comfortable for a household of couple. . Not a good choice if you do not have a garage or parking place bc this one is little too big for roadside parking.

My very beautiful VW Touareg.

I love my 2012 VW Touareg. It is beautiful, on the inside and on the outside, and it rides like a dream. It is very high tech, and I love the back-up camera and beautiful leather interior.
