    I have a 2009 touareg v6 with 215k miles that I got from my sister In law. They bought it in 2016 and put a little over 90k on it. They are the kind of people who do not maintain their vehicles, so I have no idea what the maintenance records for this car is. That being said, it's in decent...

    Help!! We went on a short drive yesterday for a hike and when we returned to our Touareg, there was a GIANT puddle of what appeared to be coolant. We drove it the couple miles home and when we got there discovered the location of the leak. It appears to be from a hose connecting into a...

    I have just purchased my first Touareg, a 2004 v10 TDI, It's awsome:D, but I've just driven 1200kms down to Brisbane at night and found that the colder it got outside,the colder the engine was running. In the evening when we left it was running at about 80, but when the temp outside got to 7...

    So, the other day I was driving on the freeway and my coolant temp guage was all over the place, its usually at 200 but this time it would climb past it, then come back down and then climb back up, never hitting the red but at one point it got a little close. Anyways, today, not a problem at...

    Hi, About 6 weeks ago I bought a second hand Treg 2004 2.5 TDI PD and after a couple of weeks a message saying "Insufficient Coolant" came on.
