Hi Iain and welcome to myTreg.com

Always a pleasure to welcome new members from God’s Country and those brave enough to consider buying a V10 Touareg!

Please remember to provide some details about your vehicle (year and model are a good start) in your signature as it helps the members answer your questions with model specific issues. Your location (in your profile) is useful so that members don't recommend services you can't get to.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:

To search use google with; [site:www.mytreg.com <search words>] for your questions as they may have been asked before, please beware that the site search needs 4 or more letter words, (no limit with the Google search).

Please post your question once in the appropriate discussion forum appropriate to your model and use the topic title & description to briefly summarise the problem. This will assist others and provide for a quicker response - it will also be searchable so ensure that the title of the thread reflects the issue. Be patient and a knowledgeable member or guest will address your question.

New members and guests can use the 'View New Content' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar, as a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were last on the forum.

Although you already have your Touareg; please read this excellent buyers guide as it will familiarise you with common issues you may experience during the ownership of your vehicle.

Every member has a Gallery area in their profile and we love to see photos of your Touareg in action. Why not add a marker where you are located to the ‘Touareg Map of the World’ as well.

Please read the Announcements in the New Members Section which includes instructions on how to add photographs/images to posts and your My Gallery area.

Finally we often recommend the value of a good aftermarket warranty, please read the warranty forum area for our experience and advice.

Kind Regards
The Admin Team.

Welcome BUT DONT DO IT

V10's are a nightmare with even quite mundane jobs requiring engine removal. V10 is a supercar and maintain supercar repair costs even at 16 years old. V6 is a much better prospect, little difference in performance, better fuel consumption and they can be worked on.

If youre old fashioned and still burning fossil fuels, MORRISONS fuel which is the best choice for all Touaregs.

If you have deeeeep pockets and don't mind spending thousands if something goes wrong, fine.

If you are likely to resent having to pay for up to 30 hours of labour to remove and replace the engine to replace an exhaust sensor for example, don't walk away - RUN.

The other key item is knowing that EXACTLY the right oil (VW 505.01 or VW 506.01) has been used throughout its life otherwise the car is likely to have prematurely worn camshaft lobes.

A full VW dealer history is no guarantee, by the way, as dealers often use the wrong oil.

If you open the fuel filler cap, is there a rubber flap with an small screw cap underneath it?

If so then you may need 5 litres of Eolys fluid (NOT adblu) and this is not cheap at around 50 quid a litre!

Do take the time to read the buying a used Touareg thread before you consider completing the purchase.
Tip! Search this forum using Google or Bing with [site:www.mytreg.com word word word ]

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA and the facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 and the facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7

Models, engines, build years, etcetera - all essential reading - is here:

FYI: Porsche Cayenne 955 = T1; 957 = T2; 958.1 = T3; 958.2 = T4; 9YA = T5

If you really recognise the risks, and are still determined to get a V10, here is an alternative one for sale by way of comparison
