  1. Door keyhole Cover Won't Stay On

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Did you ever figure this out? I too am having an issue with the driver's side keyhole cover trying to pop off. It seems to snap in place, but after a couple days the clip on the top comes out and you can see a small gap appears. If I push on the cover I can get it to click back in, but after...
  2. AdBlue refills under the Emissions Warranty

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    That's my read of the settlement too. It specifically says- "AdBlue® re-fillings will also be offered free of charge between service intervals..." The key phrase in that sentence being "between service intervals". So that is actually pretty cool if it is needed.
  3. Was Going the Certified Route Really Worth it? Let me know!

    General Maintenance & Repair
    My selling dealer overfilled the engine... by almost a quart. However someone here told me the original specs for the V6 3.0L Diesel was for 8.7 qt, but they later changed that to 8.1 qt. No explanation except that the electronic oil level may have been set incorrectly and that the simplest way...
  4. Problem? Start button didn't pop back up...

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Today I took the Touareg to the post office, then to Costco, then Lowes, home, out to our country house then over to a party. So 6 starts. When we were leaving the party I pressed the Start button, seemed odd- felt like there was minimal movement but the Treg started no problem. Got home and...

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Is this a set of 2 wiper blades from VW Parts Vortex? Thanks
  6. Electric radiator fan running after shutdown

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Have owned my 2016 Touareg TDI for 3 weeks, something happened today that was new to me. I drove 21 miles on state highway (70 mph, flat) and parked. The fan ran for nearly 10 minutes after I shut the engine off. Freaked me out because it has never done this before. After an hour drove home (21...
  7. Replacements for OE tires

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    From that chart it is a good pick, I can see that. But when I was looking for my OEM 19" size I homed in on the Vredestein Quatrac 5 because I discovered it had that 3 peak snow rating, then clicked on "See ratings for all tires in this category". Which brings up the Grand Touring All Season...
  8. Replacements for OE tires

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    Really good treadwear rating, but weak on snow and ice. I'm thinking I will be happy with the Vredesteins, especially as they are $160 less for the set. Oh, and that snow and ice are a fact of life here for 4 months of the year.
  9. Replacements for OE tires

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    I was able to buy my Quatrac 5s from Firestone Tire Center. They want $2 more than they are on Tirerack, plus mounting. They have a Hunter Road Force balancer.
  10. ABOUT TO ME BECOME A TOUAREG OWNER!!

    Drivers Lounge
    There is a 2016 TDI Lux with low miles at VW of Downtown Chicago. $41,000 but looks superb. Should be a CPO, don't understand why it isn't...
  11. New Touareg secret discovered!

    Drivers Lounge
    Don't try to tell me the "extra" storage thing in front of the right cup-holder wasn't designed for dipping sauces! OMG Perfect FIT!
  12. Replacements for OE tires

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    So now wondering about getting a set of rims/winter tires. Looking at Tirerack and they have a decent price on some 18x8" rims, and the Yokohama Iceguard IG51V snow tires-255/55r18 package is $1,510 mounted, balanced and with TPMS sensors. They appear to be as good as the Blizzak DM-V2 but less...
  13. Seized front rotors?!

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    Even on my old 1993 Pathfinder they had a threaded hole to use for pushing off the rotors. They do tend to get stuck!
  14. Replacements for OE tires

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    So I have narrowed my choices down to the following- Nokian WR G3 (went looking for the G4, not available in my size). Vredestein Quatrac 5 Costs in this part of the world will be- $908 installed for the Nokians, $1,002 for the Vredesteins. Anyone thinking of any reason to choose the...
  15. Got my 2016 Touareg TDI home today!

    Drivers Lounge
    I wasn't sure if I was going to like that brown until I got to see it in person. It is pretty sweet, with the rest of the interior black it looks amazing. My new Touareg had to be anything but beige, my Infiniti EX35 has beige everything (leather seats, carpet, dash etc) and the dirt really...
  16. How long will these V10s run on just battery?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    No battery "puts out" 14 volts. So the alternator is working somewhat, if the voltage is anything over 13 volts the batteries are being charged, not drained. How sure are you on the bad alternator diagnosis? A voltmeter is never a bad investment (because they are cheap) and would give you a...
  17. V6 TDI oil overfilled by dealer

    General Maintenance & Repair
    When I sucked out the oil I took 40 oz, knowing it was too much but figured it was easier to add oil once I finished with the extraction process. It ended up 3 notches below the Full mark. I decided to take the Touareg in to my local VW dealer because the selling dealer was so adamant that I...
  18. What are these for- Inset with cover in rear hatch and one other...

    Drivers Lounge
    Well, I went and opened the Roadside kit that came with the car, pulled out the emergency triangle to see if it goes in there. While you might be correct that it is for that purpose, the triangle supplied with the vehicle doesn't fit, not even close. Which is pretty amazing and stupid, all...
  19. What are these for- Inset with cover in rear hatch and one other...

    Drivers Lounge
    Can anyone tell me what this is for? Inside of the rear door, just below the window. Or what each of these are used for? They were in the storage bin on the left side of the trunk.
