  1. Gas or tdi

    Touareg Reviews
    Why do you think VW gas motor won't last 200K ? I have had many VW's go to 200K with no problems, brother has 03 Jetta 1.8T with 215K and runs like new! Nothing wrong with a diesel VW but don't sell the gasser's short, we love our VR6 and last trip we got 25.5mpg doing 75mph on Interstate with...

  4. Decided: Toyo Celsius CUV tires for my T2*

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    Thanks for your feedback on the Toyo Celsius CUV tires, our 2011 with the 19" package is going to need tires soon and I have been looking at the Toyo Versado CUV as an alternative to the Michelin Tour HP at $328 each. The Toyo Versado CUV are $195 each. If you stick with stock tire size...

    Go to post #139, it is critical to follow this procedure and use the wheel hanger that is in the back under deck where spare tire is. If it was not there when new then you have a good chance of fixing the SWS by carefully putting the wheels back on. I don't have a TDI but had SWS when we got our...
  6. "Terrific" gas mileage

    Gas/Electric/Hybrid/Powertrain | V6, V8, W12, FSI
    Last May we took our 2011 VR6 from Rochester, NY to Myrtle Beach, SC and back, the calculated MPG was in the low 25 mpg range for trip and the dash display was very close to calculated MPG by the 2nd tank. At 75mph on the Interstate the VR6 gets very decent MPG with the 8 speed transmission.

    You can use the Mobil 1 0w40 European Formula and can usually find at Walmart for a good price. It meets VW 502 00/505 00 oil spec.

    So far my brother has downloaded a VIN Specific manual for his 2015 GLI and 2011 Jetta and finds the information very good, he believes same or very similar to what the dealer uses. When I go out to the back of my local VW dealer to talk with service manager there are no paper repair manuals...
  9. Brakes squealing, reverse only

    General Maintenance & Repair
    We have had the same morning squeal since getting our 2011 VR6 a couple years ago, supposedly if you take pads out of calipers and clean contact points and lubricate properly you have a 70/30 chance of noise going away but we have just gotten used to it at this point. The squeal is actually the...

  11. OE Manufacturers Repair Manual - PAPER VERSION

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I am not 100% certain but pretty sure you will not find a written manual (book) for the T3 Touareg. My brother has been looking for months and he only found VW repair manuals for recent models available via a download
  12. Help! Get the message: Stop, check collant service manual.

    General Maintenance & Repair
    If the level is low top it off for now as described above but this is a closed system and the level should not change so if it is low you have a coolant loss somewhere and that warrants further investigation.
  13. [Need Help] Touareg Car Keys - New Car Owners Please Kindly Help

    Drivers Lounge
    orzking, work a deal with the seller for the second key. VW dealer will need to program new remote and reprogram existing remote to the Touareg and that is usually $95 on top of cost of the new remote.
