Tell me about this Autohold feature.

When the car is stopped, you push a button and you can remove your foot from the brake pedal and the computer will auto hold the car in place.

I leave it on all the time (except for car washes).

Just ordered some Verde Plus tires for my, New to me, 2011 Touareg. Will get them put on when I go down to get the "gold plated" ash tray replaced in the back door. Even thought we had to order them, they are less than the Goodyear Eagle OE tires on the two Touaregs on the lot at the dealer.

My local VW dealer is putting on a new set of the Verde Plus' as I type. $90 for the mount/balance and $189 for a 4-wheel alignment. My wife has given me her $500 dealer card as a finders fee for the $500 cash card I signed her up for, nice.

I'm saving the two front DWS as they still have the D and W, but the rears are only showing the D.

I like driving my Highlander wuth the Verde plus's versus the Conti Eco plus 20. Very happy. I know winter tires are worn at 50 percent but still better than all seasons worn 50 percent nooby?

I did a 100 mile round trip and am very happy with the Verde Plus'. They are as quiet or quieter than the DWS when they were both brand new. The ride is improved, probably because the tires are brand new and I can take the on/off ramps just as fast as I could before, all in all, very good so far. I'm looking forward to the rain and snow, but not snow as spring has just started.

The Verde Plus is the best tire on the market for handling and smooth, quiet ride. The only compromise is a slight decline in mpg.

That is odd as they are marketed as a low rolling resistance "green" tire, hence the name "verde".

What are you comparing them to and what kind of mpg decline have you seen?
