    2014 Touareg TDI timing belt replacement

    I also have a 2014 with 146K on it and I have never got an answer on this website. My VW dealer says it never needs to be replaced. It is super expensive to have done. Like 3K or more. I wish someone would comment on this for our vintage Touareg TDI.

    New 2016 Touareg TDI Sport 60K

    Seen a nice black one at my dealership in the used lot. When I inquired about it, they told me it had 60 on it. When I replied 60K is too many for me to consider upgrading on. She said no I mean 60 miles, less then 100. Selling for 60K with an outstanding warranty. Seems like a lot for a 6...

    2014 TDI TOUAREG TIRES

    Everyone is so tight lipped giving out information on this site. I'm on my 2nd set of Continental LX 25's and like them a lot. They are quiet, good in snow and I get about 50K miles on them.

    First Transmission Service at 141K Miles

    My VW dealership has always told me my 2014 Touareg had permanent fluid never to be changed. It had recently started hanging up in 3rd gear when accelerating slowly with a cold winter transmission. It would always shift but only when rpm's were elevated. I finally decided to get it changed in...

    So Who Has The Most Miles?

    While waiting for an oil change at my VW dealer, there was a guy in there that had 195K on his 2014. His had the emissions mod and said it had been been pretty much trouble free but needed new struts the dealer quoted at $3200 (ouch!).
