2007 Touareg v6 108k Miles - Stretched Chain

$4,500 OBO. If are willing to fix it, this is a great opportunity.

I am selling a 2007 Touareg v6 Grey on Grey. No accidents, paint looks great. It is just a great looking car. Great opportunity if you are willing to do the repair (see below). We bought a new Touareg, so looking to sell this one.

Options:
leather interior
sun roof
power seats
keyless entry
fairly new after market stereo with bluetooth (Panasonic (see my posts))
Proximity sensors

We have owned it for the last 6 years, and it was running great until a couple weeks ago. It has a stretched timing chain. It still runs fine, but not using it to avoid any further issues. This is a great opportunity for someone that knows how to pull the engine (yes, that is why the repair is so much) and repair it themselves. I estimate there is less than $1K in parts to repair it, plus the labor. If you can do it yourself you get a ~$10K SUV in great shape for $5.5K. You can't beat that deal! The dealership gave me a $4K estimate to fix the engine, so if you go that route it could still be a great deal (~$8.5K).

Over all, this is really an opportunity for someone that doesn't mind getting involved in the repair to get a great car. We hate to see it go, but we decided to by a new one. If you have ever driven a Touareg, then you know how great this car is!

Let me know if interested, make an offer!

Wow, 4k to change the timing belt!
I was just sitting here wondering if my 05 v8 torareg had the belt changed at the 80k mark.

I Did the chains on my Vr6 touareg, I get wholesale cost and parts cost around $2k. $4k is too much to ask for a purchase price.

Only your early V8 has a timing belt.

All other Touaregs have chains or, in the case of the R5 and V10, timing gears.

If you are not 1,000% certain your belt has been done, don't delay, change it ASAP along with the tensioners, water pump and thermostat.

You don't want to be like someone else on here who delayed and, as of two weeks ago after his belt broke, is now selling his car for $3,000 as a parts only scrapper.

Edit. The date of manufacture of the belt is printed on it by the way.

And, yes, $4K is a very high price to replace a 3.2 gasser timing chain.

A family member had their's done by a VW specialist for the equivalent of $2,000-2,500.

Others have reported fixing the noise by replacing the tensioner after first priming it with engine oil before fitting.

Others have also reported that the timing chain can be replaced without removing the engine if you have very small hands. Find a female mechanic!
