Hi all,

New to the forum. I'm looking at this '09 touareg and wondering what to do about it:

Seller seems motivated but after looking through the pictures and asking him a few questions I'm inclined to offer around 5k for it and he will probably wait for the next guy to come around. Am I crazy?
He is at least the 2nd, possibly 3rd owner. As you can see from the pictures, car has some cosmetic issues. And then of course there is the mileage (143k)

This would be my first volkswagen, let alone the Touareg. Any help you folks can provide on reliability, how long I can expect the engine to last, etc. would be greatly appreciated!!
