My daughter is now living in cold weather climate, and has been strongly recommended to get a 4WD. She doesn't want to get rid of her fairly new Civic she just paid for, so is looking for an older 4WD for occasional use. Looking at old CRVs, Escapes, Explorer, etc., but stumbled onto a low mileage (108k) 2004 Toureg that looks real clean. Carfax doesn't tell us a lot, like no idea if tranny's been serviced, etc. This is 8cyl, 6spd. I lean to VW from having VWs continuously for forty years, but small stuff like Rabbits, Golfs, Sportwagens so Touregs are new ground. Edmunds shows great user reviews for that year, with 600 reviews. Any thoughts, things to look out for, etc.? Are they fairly self-maintainable? I've done tranny services on DSGs, so figure the Toureg should be doable.
