Prepurchase inspection tips for TDI?

Hi, new member here trying to get into a Treg.
I'm having an indy VW mechanic check a
2010 TDI for me. (Not local to me)
He comes well recommended, but not that familiar with the 3.0 TDI engines.

Are there some things I should ask for him to focus on with engine ? Any specific tests?

This is a 50k miles, air suspension car so rather a rare bird. But its an auction car with no repair records and Carfax shows few records for service.

Any tips appreciated!

If it's a T2 then read the buying a used Touareg thread - link in my signature below.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]
Read Wikipedia:

Thank you nooby, that's a great resource you shared.

Yes it is a T2 USA TDI. I didn't see a lot of mention of TDI specific concerns in that guide, and haven't seen a lot in browsing the forum. I'll take that as a good thing 🙂

Just like with any other vehicle\brand\model, there will always be something that appears to develop somewhat of a reoccurring pattern with owners. It's good to spend some time on the forums and soak up some knowledge. Many users around here have owned or still do own them, so they will have all sorts of experiences to share, and if\when something happens, you'll also get guidance. There really isn't any foolproof approach to any specific brand\make\model or else everyone would be driving the same LIFETIME vehicle.
