I own a 2010 3.0 V6 TDI, and like so many I am trying to devise a plan once a settlement is reached this spring. Besides my 2008 GTI, this Touareg has been one of the best vehicles I've ever owned, and I am hard pressed to find a suitable replacement. I tow a 7x12 V nose (approximately 5,000 lbs), the Touareg is on the beach 9 months out of the year and my daily commute consists of 75 highway miles a day. I would love to keep the T2 and had hopes of owning it forever, however if it benefits me financially, what have I got to lose? *Now to my point; One option I have is to purchase a T3 TDI after it has been "modified". I don't mean any disrespect, but where do these dealers get off asking MSRP when these vehicles are just not worth that kind of money anymore? Example: (and correct me if I'm wrong), according to NADA and KBB a 2015 VW Touareg TDI Lux in good/excellent condition with 15,000 miles has a fair market value of somewhere between $41K-$46K and a clean retail of $43K. Again, I don't mean any disrespect, but I just don't see paying an asking price of $53K-$56K for these vehicles anymore. Any thoughts on this matter? Although we all love these things, what are they really worth these days???
