  1. Is VW/EPA going to confiscate my MY09-12 TDI Touareg?

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/vw-buy-back-offer-fix-213819629.html?soc_src=mail&soc_trk=ma Interesting - so what does this mean? Will VW only offer a buyback to 2009-2012 TDI Touareg owners, with no fix available? Does that mean if you decide you don't want to sell the vehicle back to VW, that...
  2. NAV Update Warning!

    Mobile Electronics and In Car Entertainment
    Local VW dealer told my Dad that they wouldn't even order the SD card so they could update his RNS-850 on his 2012 Executive TDI that I originally bought and since sold to him. I told him to call VW and let them hash it out, this is beyond horrible.
  3. 2011 adblue issue

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    My Dad now has my '12 TDI Touareg Exec that I bought new in 2012; it goes out of initial three year warranty the end of this month. I believe this is what he just had replaced under warranty last month, as well. I just bought a '15 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit 4x4 with the 3.0L EcoDiesel and was...
  4. Dead battery on a '12 TDI

    General Maintenance & Repair
    But the Touareg has a battery registration process like Audi and BMW; replacing the battery but not updating the computer will result in the vehicle treating the better AGM battery like the OEM battery, failing to take advantage of the advantages of the better battery. What we need is a...
  5. RNS850 v711 Update for MY2011-2013

    Mobile Electronics and In Car Entertainment
    Awesome, now I can go back to the dealer and tell them to update my RNS-850 and not Fu¢k it up this time. :D Thanks for the post!
  6. 1st oil change 2008 V10 - Mobil 1 ESP Formula M 5w-40?

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    That is interesting about the 5w40, and it makes a lot of sense especially this time of year in the Texas heat. Conversely, I'm not sure I would want to run the 5w40 in the colder climates in the winter. (Maybe a sadist should rotate by the season to play it safe?) #-o Remember though, VW puts...
  7. Adapting Battery Data?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    So as I'm going through these new 7P manuals, I'm looking at the document entitled: "electrical7P" and on page 10, it talks about adapting battery data. http://www.mutiny.com/mytreg/electrical7P.pdf I know BMW does this on my Dad's MY09 335d that we're getting ready to change the battery on...
  8. RNS-850 file limit for MP3s. Do newer updates fix this?

    Mobile Electronics and In Car Entertainment
    I too moved from the RNS-510 in a 2010 JSW TDI and have been nothing but disappointed with the RNS-850 in my 2012 Touareg. I've had the HD radio update applied, but have not noticed any difference since. The main thing that still irks me everytime I use my media on my hd in my RNS-850 is that it...
  9. Audi SQ5 - will there be a VW variant?

    Auto Anything (Non-Touareg Topics)
    I've heard from those who have driven both the TDI and Hybrid Touaregs that although the Hybrid is faster overall, the TDI's low-end torque makes for a more enjoyable/usable thrust, and still gets great mileage to boot. No offense to all those who do (and one of my closest friends has one,) but...
  10. Audi SQ5 - will there be a VW variant?

    Auto Anything (Non-Touareg Topics)
    Saw the new US spec Audi SQ5 in Jan.2014 issue of C&D, and am pretty impressed that for about the same price of my MY12 Touareg TDI Exec ($53k base to $61k as tested), you can get a top line comparable Audi with a 3.0L supercharged V6 with 354hp & 347 lbs/ft tq. Sure, only gets 23mpg on the...
  11. '13 TDI Value

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    That is specifically why I despise the recent rage of black wheels - I clean my wheels and strongly prefer the look of polished/aluminum and or chrome to black wheels, all the time, every time. To me, black wheels are for those too lazy to keep their wheels clean! :D
  12. 2012 Treg TDI Exhaust...

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    I do like the look of that, what about the sound and most importantly, interior resonance? Also, what kind/size of tires are you running?
  13. '13 TDI Value

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    Why don't you all like black? If I could have bought a brown one, I would have. It does seem like most of the dealers either order or VW shoves upon the NA market, a ton of black Touaregs. I even complained to VW (among other things like RNS-850 doesn't organize my music like the RNS-510 in my...
  14. Diesel Fuel Additive for 2013 Touareg V6 TDI

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    So our HPFP's are only good for 100k miles?
  15. Diesel Fuel Additive for 2013 Touareg V6 TDI

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    So the new 2014 Ram diesels are B20 compliant, which is the same engine in the Jeep GC. 2014 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel V6 | Diesel Engine Truck | RAM Trucks The new Chevy Cruze 2.0L diesel is also rated for up to B20. GM's 2014 Chevy Cruze Adds to Growing List of B20-Ready Vehicles - Biodiesel.org...

    Great looking except there is no TDI variant! I've been waiting for these for awhile now, just ordered one off Ebay straight from our friends in China. Kyosho
  17. VW says to NHTSA that HPFP failure is b/c of GAS in the tank

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    I don't know about you, but I'm not letting my dealer touch my rig for this; we'll see what vehicles they come out with and propose this for. I doubt that the HPFP failure issue is solely because people accidentally put a little gas in their tanks, and that it has nothing at all to do with...

  19. RNS-850 v.3 Map Update

    Mobile Electronics and In Car Entertainment
    This is what I was afraid of, you have to have the dealer do the install. I'm sure most dealer will gouge you on the labor even if you bring in your own certificate, too. how to install new maps in rns850 new touareg ?? - Page 2
  20. RNS-850 v.3 Map Update

    Mobile Electronics and In Car Entertainment
    I just posted asking about this, I guess the search feature did not find this thread. Navteq refers to this as VW Map Update 2, btw. There are two part #'s: 7P6 051 236 A - $343 and includes the SD card (for the dealer) 7P6 051 850 A - $303 no SD card (for the consumer) Volkswagen National...
