Hi

I've just purchased a 2004 Touareg V8 and it's such a beautiful car. As you would expect being an 11 yr old car with 135K miles there are a few little problems I need to sort out. Hopefully being part of this community I'll be able to get on top of these issues!

Thanks
Mike

Key thing with an early V8 is being certain the timing belt, tensioners, water pump and thermostat have been and are changed every 80,000 miles or 5 years, whichever comes first.

If the belt goes, the engine is toast.

If you haven't already seen the "buying a used Touareg" thread, the link is in my signature below.

Do take time to read it carefully - you'll probably learn stuff about your car you don't know and, later, save money too.

Enjoy your car.
