Volkswagen Touareg 2 gen - five main disadvantages

1. Electrical failures

This is one of the problems that the Touareg II received from its predecessor. It is not clear why, but there were constant problems with the electrics in the car. Small but annoying. The keyless entry system has become a kind of failure champion - the rare owner of the second Touareg had no problems with it. But in general, a catch could be expected from anywhere.


Power windows failed, heated seats broke, xenon headlights turned off, and so on and so forth. It is impossible to find any logic or reason for this, it just happened (and it still happens on these machines). It was good for the first owners, all such problems were easily solved under warranty, but if it is already expensive to repair problematic elements at your own expense. True, compared to the cost of maintaining the suspension, this is nonsense.

2. Air suspension maintenance

Pneumatic suspension is convenient - high smoothness, the ability to adjust the clearance, excellent comfort when moving. But when it comes to repairs, it's time to grieve. The pneumatic system of the Touareg II is not very reliable. The main problem is a leak in one of the cylinders.

Often the owner finds his car leaning on one wheel. And this is not the most unpleasant situation, because repairs in such a situation can be relatively inexpensive. It is much worse when, with a run of 150-200 thousand kilometers, it will be necessary to completely replace the cylinders and the compressor (the most accurate ones reach 250 thousand, but the moment of replacement is still inevitable).

Therefore, it is better to buy cars with a conventional spring suspension in the secondary market, there is also something to break there, but the cost of repairs is incommensurable.

3. Problems with engines

The pre-styling Touareg II was sold mainly with five types of power plant, although the hybrid version was so unpopular that it can be ignored. And so - two diesels, two gasolines, V6 and V8. Not to say that any of these power units was frankly a failure, but there are questions for everyone. Diesels have a weak point - sensitivity to the quality of diesel fuel.


The new generation injection pump no longer drove chips into the system, as was the case with the first generation, but still one unsuccessful refueling could lead to the death of pump injectors, which were very expensive. In addition, diesel V6s had a strange joint - a noticeable smell of diesel fuel in the cabin. And this is on a premium car!

Gasoline V6 were plagued by leaking front oil seals and a timing drive, in which the chain was already stretched at low runs. But at least it can be repaired for sane money. The scourge of the gasoline V8 was fuel consumption, which easily reached 20 liters in the city.

It is clear that the car is a premium class, but it's somehow too much. In general, each power unit has skeletons in the closet and which one to choose is not an idle question.


It is curious that in all the engines of this generation of Touareg there were no dipsticks to control the oil level - the car produced such information electronically. On the one hand, it’s convenient, you can see everything on the dashboard, you don’t even need to climb under the hood. On the other hand, the sensor was often buggy and ordered the wrong information. And there is no alternative to control the oil level. A prime example of a good idea turning into a problem.

4. Jerking when shifting gears

This bribed many, everyone hoped for a trouble-free operation, but in practice everything is not so cloudless.

The V6 box had a relatively long service life, so V8 engines did not have an enviable resource, especially in the hands of dynamic driving enthusiasts. Already by the “term” of 50,000,000,000 events, there were delays and transition delays. Flashing in such cases is rare, usually used to replace solenoids and flush.

5. Rapid body aging

Cars of this class are usually made with the expectation of longer use than budget runabouts. But, alas, the Touareg body does not differ in the ability to maintain gloss for a long time. No, we are not talking about corrosion, the car is doing well with this. The problem is in appearance.


The paintwork is quite thin, it quickly rubs off and loses its shade, on small runs they lose their appearance and headlights that become cloudy. But the main annoyance is the very rapid “baldness” of chrome parts, they peeled off literally in one or two winters.

As they say, it does not affect speed, but still a high-class car, and they buy it not only to move from point A to point B, the owners also want solidity and appearance. Although, probably, for buyers on the secondary market in our time, this is no longer a strong drawback.

Sediment was from the salon. The quality of the materials is high, but the build quality could be better. Crickets and squeaks appeared already in the first years of operation.
