    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hi, I own a V6 3.6L base model touareg serviced by the dealer in Dubai thrice (last service was done at 35k km). Major service was due at 50k, but since the dealer quoted a ridiculous price for it.. I did an oil, oil filter, air and cabin filter change at a local mechanic. He inspected my belt...
  2. Pre-Buy: Timing belt...

    General Maintenance & Repair
    One of the questions I have been asking is if the timing belt has been replaced. All the ones I've looked at are just over 100K and no one seems to know if it's been done. At what point should I be worried? Some of these vehicles have 110K + miles on them. Thanks!

    Hi all- I'm new here and I'm looking at a 2004 VW Touareg V6 with 97K. I understand the V6 doesn't need a timing belt- it's a chain so hopefully we're all good there. I got a copy of the maintenance history from the CarFax and there were a couple things which threw me off. The car is super...

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I just wanted to get some info on the replacement schedule for the engine air intake filter. All my manual says is at 180,000 km this air/snow filter needs to be changed, but no other time. I asked my dealer and they said it's odd that VW lets this filter run that long (and so do I). Should this...
