Very True - Confusing video if there ever was one. I had to go back through the comments to finally see where he had clarified '2006 and earlier'His "issues" are mostly aimed at the early trucks, which were new to him and all VW techs, and a pain to figure out. By the time the T2 happened ('08) most of his "Touareg failures" were sorted. This video should really be re-titled as "Top Problems with first generation Touaregs," although it's not even very complete or specific or helpful about those at this point. (Especially now that high mileage timing belt engines blowing up are probably the biggest failures/expenses facing the prospective T1 buyer, while the "electrical problems" have long ago been dealt with.)
Most "non Treg" people, including Mr. Humble himself, tend to lump all Touaregs together, like "they're all the same." (They're not.) Stick to 08 and up, and you can pretty much ignore the video.
