  1. 200,000 mile report - 2011 T3 3.0 TDI Sport

    General Maintenance & Repair
    The Touareg turned 200,000 miles today. Not much to report. The main thing I want some feedback on is the transmission. The 5 --> 6 upshift seems to have RPM flare, meaning the engine speed bumps around 50 RPM higher than it seems like it should, before the shift is completed. The flare...

  5. 2005 V6 kicks when gear shifts

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    Hi all, I have a 2005 V6 Treg at 215000 Kms. Because sounds creepy and over expensive to me, I needed your kind help from here, before I go to dealer. At first, it all started with hard shifting from 6th to 5th gear. Irregularly, when driving over 100km/h at 6th, and after to slow down under...
  6. Do you tow in 'D' or 'S'?

    Off-Roading & Towing
    Apologies if this is a repost (if so, please link for me) but I'm curious if it's best to tow in regular drive mode or sport. I have an 09 TDI. I know the sport mode holds the gear longer and delays shifting into 6th. I came from the Chevy/Ford world with a Tow/Haul button on the shifter.
  7. Porsche Bash Plate

    Off-Roading & Towing
    Gerald posted in the Aussie/NZ forums, since Porsche presumably market this part world wide, I hoped somewhere someone might know if it will fit on the Touareg?
