    So now that I have a commute again I had to get a daily driver. Last week I posted a vehicle in the Craiglist find thread, and well one thing led to another and the following day I purchased it. That's right, I went from 5 cylinders and 1 turbo to 10 cylinders and two turbos. Guessed it yet...

    Hey Friends, I work at Dorman (we make aftermarket car parts) and we’re looking for a 2006-2018 3.6L VW CC/Passat/Touareg for a valve cover try on. We would give you a $500 VISA card to do this try on because otherwise we will have to buy the car and we don’t really feel like doing that. We...

    Picked up a 2012 T3 Exec (VR6) this spring. Runs great and everything worked until a few weeks ago. I think introducing a 10 year into the world of back seats and the door opening and closing so much as angered the right rear door and VCDS is now saying the keyless entry handle is showing a...

    Hi all, I’m looking to buy a ‘15 Touareg Lux with 45k miles/3.6 L V6 engine. What issues should I check for before buying? Any known issues I should expect between now and 75K miles?

    Pretty well, is the short answer. It's no secret that the original Touareg is one of the more over-engineered SUVs to roll into dealerships. So much so that old models are still one of the best off-roading deals you can get. Even against a mighty Grand Cherokee with mods, the aging Touareg...

    If you’re a greenie who loves hauling your compostable tote to the grocery store in search of climate-conscious vegan food, Volkswagen’s U.S. lineup likely leaves a lot to be desired.

    It's the last of the V8 Touaregs. The 4.0L twin-turbo, 664 lb-ft super SUV that happens to be a diesel. And the head of VW marketing things it'll be a collector's item.
