    Howdy. Just purchased a 2012 TDI Touareg 90k miles about 3 weeks ago. The Car needed new front brakes and rotors so I took it to a VW mechanic in my area. I also mentioned soft/spongy brakes with no bite. They said they would look into. They call me 2 hours later and say the soft brakes are...

    Thanks for the add! This will serve as my new member and manufacturer input post! Has anyone installed SP Performance rotors? Price and options look awesome and I am starting to see them all over social media. Their reviews are excellent as well!I think I want to try their peak series.

    Need to do a complete brake replacement and am wondering if anyone has a good site to order from? Brake Companies that i should look at (Centric, EBC, etc....)? Any and all information would be helpful! Thanks

    The other day I was cruising with my 2004 V6 Touareg on the highway and all of a sudden my car started to brake (ABS feeling) and ABS/Brake warnings appeared on the display. Scary stuff I must say in the middle of the highway. I calmly drove home where the same thing happened to me at a very low...

    I was told today that my 2012 needs an ABS module. Since we all like a good story, here's mine. The mighty Touareg has been running well since getting the adblue heater repair kit installed back in April (2015 – since who knows when someone might read this). We’ve been on a few longish rides...

    Hi All, Has anyone does any brake upgrades or changes, as I feel my brakes need more stopping power. Currently on, just standard brake pads and discs all round. Not worn out or anything, But just feel when driving I need more or better stopping.:smile2:

    Brakes Access Workshop Message & Not Shifting Smoothly into "R" and "D" I have a 2008 Treg w/137,000 miles. Yesterday I got in and started the car. Initially it did not want to turn over. I took the key out and tried again. It started and there was a loud beep with the message "Brake Access...

    Got an alert light saying that I need to replace my brake pads on Touareg V6 2007. Mechanic told I need to replace rotors and sensors as well. This guy works with VW and Audi only, and his company has a good rating on Yelp. What options are there for long-last rotors and brake pads? Should I...

    I've decided to buy parts online for my 2004 Touareg 3.2L V6. I bought brake pads that say 350mm rotor, and rotors that say 350 mm as well, but after doing some searching around I came to the conclusion that I may have bought the wrong parts. My questions are: Do I need to make sure what type of...

    Replaced the rear brake shoes and rotor. By-pass wiring was installed by previous owner so I simply secured the sensor wires and left them unconnected. Brakes operate properly but 'check brake pads' warning indicator appears on MFI panel. Any idea what would cause this?

    I have a 2012 TDI Lux with 35,000 miles on it that has started shaking when I brake, but only if the disks are hot. So, on highway at 70, put on the brakes and no shake. This weekend coming down a 10 mile hill in Vermont, the brakes get warm/hot (not riding the brakes but from intermittent...

    Most Touareg ads I’ve seen have them driving through streams are tearing across the Baja so they must be tough cars, right? When it’s working, I really like my Touareg but it has been, without a doubt, the worse car I have ever owned! …and I’ve owned a lot of cars. I bought a 2007 V6 in...
