What Treg to get for first buy
Hi all, I am wondering what Treg to purchase for my first buy.
Should I steer clear of a certain year? I am thinking 2007 would be good.
I heard those do not have timing belts, and the earlier ones do, requiring more replacements, upkeep, etc..
Should I count out 2006 or earlier models because they have timing belts? How often do they need to be changed, do they go faster with chains?
I think the 2006 and higher models have backup cams. Is that correct? I like the idea of backup cams, or at least parking sensors. I have seen most 2004,2005 do not have parking sensors.
Love the idea of air suspension. Does the air suspension fail often? If it does will it render the car useless, or can I still drive it?
I live in the mountains, should I buy TDI? I have heard it is very expensive if it breaks. I will not consider gas v6 because of the power loss. V8 seems fine so far and I def love the power.
Am I the only one who is holding out for the perfect interior/exterior color combo? Black/Teak
