The time has come to sell my 2007 VW Touareg. It is a V10 TDI, off-road grey exterior with teak leather interior. I'm the third owner of this TDI, it was a Colorado car and now resides in Oklahoma. I have had it serviced at dealers in OKC (until I had issues with both locations), now I just take it to Eddies Imports (in OKC) or do the simple jobs myself (prior helicopter mechanic and I'm no stranger to race cars).

For the sake of full disclosure, the current issues are that the parking distance sensors are triggered at random times (usually crosswalks at stop lights) turning this off has just become part of my start-up procedure. The other thing is that the return spring in the emergency brake pedal is slightly worn, so you need to pull up the pedal a bit with your foot after releasing the brake.

The reason I'm selling it is that I just don't drive it much anymore. I got my car up and running after doing a differential swap, and I now have an old farm truck to handle the daily/towing duties.

Extras included: full-size spare, bug deflector, mud guards and running boards.
Mileage: 90,xxx
Asking $19,000
Located in Stillwater, Oklahoma

grateful_carl - I wrote up a huge response to your PM, but apparently the rules changed since I was last on here. Now you have to have >15 posts to send any PM's. I can send you the full response detailing my experience with the dealerships in the area once I get a few more posts.

Here's the synopsis - I take it to Eddies Imports on Western Ave. I highly recommend them as they specialize in VW and seem very knowledgeable. However I'm not sure if they do any major surgery (engine out procedures).

Side note - There isn't a VW dealer in Stillwater, and I don't trust a lot of the shops around here. It seems like there are plenty of oil change and tire shops, but not much else. While doing a differential rebuild on my 350z, I went all around town trying to find someone to perform the tooth pattern check to make sure I did everything right. It took all day and I only talked to one guy that knew a few things. I was much better off with a general mechanical aptitude and a few in-depth YouTube videos!

It's not a spring but a small damper that's duff on the parking brake pedal. Takes 10 minutes to replace and costs about $30 so no big deal for anyone. In the meantime you might find that if you pull the release and hold it out for two seconds before letting go you don't even have to catch the pedal with your toecap to turn the parking brake light off!

Good luck with the sale.

Thanks for the tip! I'll see if I can get that ordered.

I went AWOL for a while due to a perfect storm of injury/surgery, military obligations, and school getting out of control. Anyway, everything is under control now and this vehicle is still for sale.

Had it in for another service with no extra maintenance required. I also replaced the damper for the parking brake pedal (thanks again to NoobyToogy).

Reducing price to $17,000.

If interested, contact me by phone or email.
