  1. VW TDI EPA Recall (2.0L and 3.0L)

    Auto Anything (Non-Touareg Topics)
    That's what we did Traded a 90,000 mile '12 Lux for a 19,000 mile '16 lux and still got $ back from VW. Great deal. The only thing I kept from the '12 was the cargo cover - nothing was said about that.

  3. VW TDI EPA Recall (2.0L and 3.0L)

    Auto Anything (Non-Touareg Topics)
    Trade trade trade We traded our '12 TDI Lux That was due for it's 90,000 mile service for a '16 TDI Lux (same colors and everything) that had 20,000 miles and got $3500 in our pocket. The cars are pretty much indistinguishable visually and performance-wise. Great deal that I recommend if you...
  4. TDI post-compliance towing?

    Auto Anything (Non-Touareg Topics)
    Do it! I did exactly that: traded a '12 TDI Lux for a '16 that had 20,000 miles on it. Our '12 had just turned 90,000. Towing seems even a little better mileage-wise and perhaps less effort with the '16. The "feel" is about the same; this is hard to objectively compare because, of course, the...

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    I have a "fixed" 2016 and may be interested in returning transmission to pre-fix. BUT, this thread is now 116 posts long and I hesitate to plod through all that. So... how about an update of details about this fix? I remember reading that there were choices - send in your TCM & have it recoded...
  6. Thinking about selling my 2014 Touareg TDI Sport

    Drivers Lounge
    My advice: get a GTI I've driven sports cars off and on over the years, the last being a 2006 Miata that I replaced with a 2015 GTI. My personal analysis is that for me. the GTI is far more useful, user friendly, relatively quiet, nice and quick, agile and far more convenient to use as a...
  7. What will you miss in the T3 TDI?

    Drivers Lounge
    I was going to do the same thing I was shopping a Chevrolet Colorado diesel, and could have bought it for less than the buyback offer from VW for our '12 TDI LUX. Then, after a second test drive = the GMC/Thai(?) diesel was just too slow and I then knew that the little truck, as nice as it...

  9. '16 TDI Fuel Neck Block??

    Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Thanks to all --- this forum is incredibly useful I looked at the owner's manual since first posting - the guardian of the tank is called, "misfueling guard for diesel vehicles." I think I'll get a neck adapter from Amazon that will allow use of my funnel. Question for Solandri: Do you use...
  10. '16 TDI Fuel Neck Block??

    Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    I just traded my '12 TDI for a complianced '16 TDI that had 20,000 miles on it pursuant to the EPA mess. Happy so far. I will report on the differences later.... I have used fuel additive (diesel kleen) ever since my '12 gelled in 2013. The '16 has a block/door in the filler neck that is...
  11. TDI post-compliance towing?

    Auto Anything (Non-Touareg Topics)
    Has anyone done any towing after having EPA compliance performed? If so, anything to report? Towing is one of the most important duties for our Touareg. I am hoping to trade our '12 for a "fixed" '16. Thanks
  12. VW TDI EPA Recall (2.0L and 3.0L)

    Auto Anything (Non-Touareg Topics)
    Based on this, I am convinced that my recent decision to sell back our 2012 was the right one. The engine braking, torque, were all part of why the Touareg was so great. I will mss it. An aside, maybe even more apropos to the prior post: I see many use the term "fix" to describe the repair...
  13. VW TDI EPA Recall (2.0L and 3.0L)

    Auto Anything (Non-Touareg Topics)
    Very intresting stuff here; contrary to most posts First, the local VW dealer that I go to told me yesterday that they have done NO compliance repairs because a special tool (to disconnect the exhaust from the manifold) is required because they do not want to be responsible if something breaks...
  14. The Grand Tour

    Off-Topic Forum
    I for one dislike Grand Tour and have not watched it since the first episode. From what I read, the following episodes are similar so I stay away. Too much glitz and nonsense and too little substance. LAUGH TRACK for the tent/studio shenanigans? Give me a break. Too juvie* for me. *That's...
  15. Is It Normal to be Using Oil?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Oil used only when towing I have not observed oil usage except when towing. (Guessing here) maybe 1/2 quart over 4,000 miles. 2012 TDI Lux, about 68,000 miles now. No problems except for adblue preheater that was replaced under warranty about 3 months ago after towing cross country, CT to UT...

  18. 57,000 Mile Update

    Touareg Reviews
    2012 TDI Lux Fifty seven thousand carefree miles without issue. NO repairs, only standard scheduled maintenance. I continue to be delighted with the performance and reliability of the vehicle. (estimated 15-20,000 of those miles were towing a ~3,000 lb travel trailer)
  19. 2014 Brake Controller Install

    Off-Roading & Towing
    I have the same issue. Although I show 12v at the 7 prong plug, Touareg does not charge well, and will not operate trailer's 12v refrig, which underway drains trailer's battery and so must use propane while on the road..

    Unstoppable Virus! I decided to only send this important email to my "older" friends and when I was done, the list was longer than I thought! image.jpeg I thought you would want to know about this e-mail virus. Even the most advanced programs from Norton or McAfee cannot take care of this...
