2011 VW Touareg TDI Executive - another by goodmonkey
Since the Touareg was introduced with the V10 engine I have been fascinated, as at the time I still did not have a TDI but drove a Silverado with a Duramax. It wasn't long though before I did get my first TDI, but still could not imagine ever owning a V10 beast. Fast forward to a few years ago, when we sold our TDIs back to VW, I was looking hard at the T2 Touaregs. Instead of going with one of those, I ended up getting the highest mileage Silverado Duramax I could find, with 409k miles. I sold it this week for more than I paid for it in 2016 at 426k miles. I did it so I could get a TDI Touareg at last. Though I did see a few of those V10's out there, I stuck to looking at the V6 TDIs with the extended emissions warranty.

Yesterday I bought one. A 2011 Touareg, black on black, with Executive package. It looks good for it's age, with 138k on the odometer, but there are a few issues. I will have to get new tires almost immediately, as the right rear is almost bald. The rest I could probably get another 5k miles out of. I've also found out that the sunroof leaks. Thank you VW for yet another leaking roof. I'll see if it is just a blocked drain or if I need to take the headliner down, not looking forward to that.

At any rate, here she is. No name yet, no planned modifications yet, but need to get those tires replaced and see if my shaking above 65 MPH is corrected.

Thanks! I'm hoping to get her cleaned up once I'm done with this trip and get some decent pictures uploaded. I've been working out today what my maintenance plan is from 140k-200k miles.

Sunroofs, could we not?
I don't know if it is more correct to say I dislike greatly sunroofs or VW's sunroofs or VW's idea that every upscale vehicle has to have one. The Touareg of course has one, and one of the drains isn't working like it should, instead letting water into the vehicle down the D pillar. I ran line up the drain today and it didn't seem like there were any obstacles until the top. This looks like a headliner drop to fix the line junction with the drain in the rail. Not my idea of fun. At least I can park with the back end up hill and the front drains work.

Nice! When I was shopping around for one, I found the very best deals on them were BLACK ones. Apparently NOBODY is south FL wants one with our heat!
