Spotted two Touaregs today. One Blue Silver V6 on I-84 west in Waterbury, CT. The second was an Offroad Gray on Rt 71A in Berlin, CT.

Re: touareg sighting in seattle. (spockcat)

I saw three Touaregs, a Phaeton, a Jetta and a Beetle all traveling together on I-25 south of Loveland CO. Two of the Touaregs were V10 TDI the other was a V6 like mine. They had Florida plates and were dirty as hell. They let me place my clean Touareg in the middle of their caravan and I drove with them about five miles.

V10? Aren't there testing grounds in FL? I guess this could have been a group of VW testing employees.

Re: touareg sighting in seattle. (BRM10984)

No better place to test them than in the Mountains of Colorado. The I-70 stretch from Denver to the Eisenhower Tunnel is pretty punishing on vehicles (witnessed by the 10 or so broken down vehicles every time I head to Breckenridge).
I see all kinds of test mules on I-70 from all manufactures. Mostly see them in the summer when it is hot and the air is REALLY thin. the other place I see them is in or around Prescott, AZ. the Climb from Phoenix to Flagstaff is also VERY punishing.

And yes, that is a very trying stretch of roadway.

Christina,
How long are you going to be in the area? It could have been mine, sometimes i drive in that area. I am starting to see a lot more Touaregs in the area, about one every day or two.

NWroller,
If you ever get a chance to cruise up to Mt. Rainier, please take some pics. That area makes a fantastic backdrop for photos!! I didn't have my Touareg when I lived up there but used to take some nice photos with my previous car.

I plan on climbing Mt. Rainier this summer. I'll try to remember to take some pics with the T'Reg.

Excellent! That's a tough and dangerous climb too
I miss the greenery of the Pacific NW. Whenever I do I look outside and see sunshine and have 70+ degree weather in February and it makes me forget about it..haha.
