Did you own a VW model before you purchased your Touareg?

Hello,

I'm currently conducting research into Touareg owners and was interested if any of you had previously owned any VW models before you purchased your Touareg? and how long you have been a VW customer for?

Would be really interested in your views

Many Thanks..

Have you contacted this site's owner with regard to this research?

BUAC - a bit of background to who you are and what the research is for will always help - people will be more likely to actually vote if they know where the information is going

Thanks for the guidence Kaine - I'm currently conducting research into Touareg owners for a university project; in which I am looking into the role of advocacy and Touareg owners - this reasearch is purley for academic purposes so your help would be greatly appreciated!

If anyone has any thoughts on advocacy in relation to being a Touareg owner I would be really interested to hear your views....such as would you consider yourself to be an advocate of Touareg/VW brand, if so why - what encourages you to act in this way?.........

I bought a Treg because it was understated like the two Classic [Mark 1] Range Rovers I owned [unlike the ghastly taxi-like Mark 2 and the abomination called a Range Rover Sport], far better built, and because it was as cheap as chips with someone taking a 75%+ hit on what they'd paid for it 5 years earlier!

Only if you count my previous Touareg - I'm on to my 2nd, but prior to this I had never owned VW and I've been on the road since 1978.

Hi
Yes I have owned VW's for many years my first half dozen were the original Beetles that were pre-owned with some many miles on the clock. I unfortunately was driving at that time up to 35,000 miles a year. Then a Sirocco .. the family had a Jetta and a couple of Golf's. Currently have Golf's in the family. Then on on a personal note an absence for many years Came back into the fold four years ago with the Touareg and a Phaeton.
Currently restoring a 1971 Beetle, in the family from new.
Mainly supporter of because of reliabity although the current models such as the Touareg have had numerous issues.
Hope this helps

I had a Passat about 5 years ago then 2 A4s and SWMBO has had a Beetle soft top for 5 years.

So the answer to your question is yes

I've had a 1990 Golf GTi 8v and a 2004 New Beetle V5 sport edition.
Loved both of them too.
After having an X-Trail too I wanted to blend the 2 and therefore along comes the Treg!! Sorted Yay!

I have only owned one VW prior to my current Touareg though I have been close to VW's for the past 22 years. I had a Golf GTI in the early 90's but a 60mph disagreement with a black horse one dark December night put an end to that. Nearly put an end to me too but for it being a Golf according to the mechanic that collected the remains of my car.

But I digress. You see my girl friend and now wife has owned only VW Golfs since the Mk1 starting with a standard 1.6, then Driver, 8v GTI's, 16v GTI and now R32. My father-in-law is a life long Passat fan too so when I finally got my Touareg it was very much a case of........."aye lad, finally seen sence then and got yer sel a VW?" Can't doubt 'em really as it's by some margine the most pleasing car I've had in 30 odd years of driving.

An original Polo [GLS?] and a 1.9 non turbo diesel 3olf recently scrappaged by a family friend who bought and ran it for another six years. 5 youngsters learnt to drive on that car and it still had the original clutch after over 200K!
