Since buying the wife a Touareg I've been searching for my own. After a year and a half and a bunch that had too many problems I finally found one I liked in Kansas City, Ms. I had Bud Brown VW do a vehicle inspection and check DTCs. Flew out and Terry the owner picked me up at the airport and drove us to his house where I did a vag- com, no surprises. Drove back to Utah, 1150 miles in a day and a half and have been fixing the known faults and other misc items. Am excited and happy with my new ride, 07 V8 FSI campenella white with air suspension, factory hitch and keyless entry/start. Thanks Terry?

Excellent purchase. Did you mention how many miles on it when you bought it?
Mileage was 117000, Paid $8750. Bought VCDS and Bentley Repair Manual. So far I've replaced hood struts, serp belt, valve cover gaskets, spark plugs, adjustable camshaft valve O rings, coolant flush, both differential & transfer case oil changes, engine air filters, cabin air filter, 17" wheels and tires, valet key and 2nd keyfob, 2 oil changes and oil level sensor. Still to do ATF and filter change and remove intake manifold, replace all gaskets and O rings and clean carbon off valves and ports, then I hope I'm good to go for a while, love the ride.

Yes, all maintenance done by myself since I have no warranty and I enjoy digging in and getting to know my vehicle.
