2005 Volkswagen Touareg Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 152005


  • 11,000 miles


I have a 2005 Volkswagen Touareg it has been in the shop for repairs and or problems and re-calls since day one. But my biggest problem seems to be the stepper motor problem which has been tearing my tires to threads. Since day one we have taken this vehicle to the VW dealer and complained about the tires skipping and chugging on the pavement as you turn at slow speeds. This is apparently from what I found out to be caused by this stepper motor. But I did not find that out through any of the service people or mechanics from VW dealerships. Apparently there is a simple fix of some software update. But no dealerships have a working cd for this so-called software update. This vehicle has been parked in my garage and I do not use it often as I cant afford to keep replacing my tires. The skipping of the tires when U turn is cupping them and making the tires very loud while you drive. All I have been told from VW dealers from New Jersey to Maine is that this vehicle is suppose to do that. That's what I have been told since I bought this vehicle new. It wasn't till I joined a club called club Touareg that I then found all this information about the problems with my 2005 VW Touareg. I also have this vehicle aligned every 2-3 even 4 times a year because of the problems with this vehicle. My thought are that this is a very un safe vehicle to drive and someone needs to stand up and help us consumers out. How can a vehicle manufacture be able to produce and sell a vehicle with this amount of problems" do we have to wait for someone to die" before something is done. VW should be made to have to recall all these lemon vehicle that the so poorly made and that our great government has allowed them to sell. But guess your to busy with the economy, the oil spill and yeah Toyota and don't forget that last one. So do something people stand up for us. There are many people out there with this same Volkswagen Touareg problem who unlike me don't no why there tires are being chewed off.
