    Touareg fuel economy

    My 2012 and 2016 TDIs would make the trip from NE to SWFL 1475 miles on 2 tanks of fuel ,driving 75-80 MPH. Did that trip for 25 yrs and always the same MPGs. Pretty good for a tank. Of course now with the pricing mess with diesel fuel the big advantage has changed. BTW I drove the same trip...

    U.S. Comeback?

    Just remember your EV battery is 1/2 of the value of the car and will die in about 10yrs. replacing it or dumping it will be a real issue from an economic basis. Talk about planned obsolescence. You won't see many 20yr old EVs on the road. EV resales are a straight line down to zero over about...

    U.S. Comeback?

    EVs will find a place in US in urban areas and suburbs as a second car. I might get one in a few years when they get their act together. Maybe be another battery system that is better and cheaper. Better hope the roll out takes a lot of time or we will have implosion to the infrastructure system.

    I just had the oil changed and the dealer put 0-30w in

    I'm an old geezer, grew up making hot rods from early flat head ford V-8s,probably used straight 40 or 50weights in summer and 20 or 30W in the winter. lol

    I just had the oil changed and the dealer put 0-30w in

    If you keep the car for the warranty period I guess there is no harm. If you intend to keep it long term and drive in super hot weather all the time I am saying it may just not be good for 250,000 miles on the OD. It is your problem to deal with. We should get an oil expert to tell us if oil...

    I just had the oil changed and the dealer put 0-30w in

    I appreciate updates,but oil isn't rocket science, each level of viscosity represents a different environment the oil will be used in. If I lived in Canada I might agree with the change,but I live in an environment of intense heat 10 months of the year. The TREG was serviced in South west FL...

    I just had the oil changed and the dealer put 0-30w in

    I am confused that the 0-30w is suppose to be what is used now. Manual says 5-40w synthetic for the 2016 TDIs Any thouhts on this? I called another dealer and got the same message 0-30w

    Got a CEL on a 2000 mile road trip

    Circling back ,had the car to the dealer. Found no faults,reset engine light . They said if it comes back on they will dig deeper,but don't want to start to do anything now, no charge for the quick check. Nice surprise. Should know in the next few days if there is a further issue.

    DEF

    I stupid question,did you get the warning at 1000 miles, and a count down on your MFD ? If so did you get reminded as the miles added up? If so call one of the suggested shops and as how to reset the system.,assuming the tank is full. I hate the whole DEF system.

    Got a CEL on a 2000 mile road trip

    I have a 2016 TDI Touraeg with 25,000 miles, had it serviced before this trip of 2000 miles. First fill up left the station and car threw engine light. Called the dealer who did the servicing and he said it's probably a loose fuel cap. Re checked the cap and went on my way. Light never reset...

    Current price of diesel

    just drove from SW Florida 2000 miles to NE and the prices are all over the lot. as low as 5. in FL to 6.50 in NJ. There is a lot of crap going on for sure. I'll be parking my TREG for the summer.

    3.0 cata failed engine

    You need to post the dealer you are working with so other people here will avoid this dealer. I had an issue with an Audi dealer with a bad water pump I complained about while under warranty which they said was fine ,3 mos later after the warranty expired they said it had to be replaced . Fixed...

    3.0 cata failed engine

    The heavy work has been done if the engine is broken down. Chains and tensioners are peanuts compare to having to break down the engine again to do the same job in the future. Audi should have suggested this for the customer's benefit.

    It's all political, end of story. Read behind the lines and it is clear.

    3.0 cata failed engine

    It sounds like they are pushing you into litigation. They need to reimburse you the fair value of the car . I would then move on to something else. I'm surprised VW/Audi would go this route with their premier car.

    DPF needs replacing at 36k miles

    I've been away for a little bit. I had a reason to say VWs "fix" has caused the trouble. I have owned 2 TREGS 1st one was a 2012 with 60k miles on it and traded back to VW for a new 2016 TDI with 1500 miles when picked up . # 1 TDI never had an issue with the DPF warning, #2 got a warning at...

    In FL I can use the scooter for most things, It gets 100 MPGs. The TREG TDI is pulled out for distance trips obviously.
