      Open up your wallet, maintenance is going to cost you many times purchase price. Good luck.

    The cooled glovebox and the place for manual was also present in my grandfathers 1993 Opel Vectra.

      6:46 "How many cars have that? I would say probably only the Touareg"
      Actually all VW group of that era had that, even the cheapest.
      Other non VAG brands too, I believe Subaru, MB, Lexus among others.

        My 2000 Skoda Octavia had the sunshade above the rear view mirror. Subsequently deleted I think in later models. Missed it a lot.

          So much butthurt for Touaregs in the comments. I own a touareg 7L with air suspension too. Fantastic car. I also own an Audi allroad - also fantastic car.
          These cars are utterly great cars, and I would not suggest anyone just go out and buy one.
          BUT its not because they are crap or unreliable. Its because they REQUIRE careful, attentive, ownership. You can even own, maintain and repair these cars on a budget if you have the garage space, the tools and a careful hand.
          They are not cars to fix with big hammers, and they are not cars to throw money at with mechanics, because mechanics are not interested in spending days working on these cars with owners who will come back again and again.
          IF you can be your own mechanic, and IF you can appreciate what VAG were doing when they built these cars, then they are a DREAM :-)

              Color new impressed with this purchase! I never knew the Touareg was so ahead it’s time. It seems like it was trying to outdo Range Rover. People like to shit talk VW in general, Audi also. But I’d gladly take most used VW’s over BMW or Mercedes Benz of the same age with few exceptions. Btw the new Arteon is destined to be a misunderstood future classic. This seems a recurring theme with VW 🤔 And clearly they know how to do luxury and design, that’s not just Audi.

                    According to what I saw at the 21 minute mark you can jump this thing.
                    That makes it 100 times better than a Raptor!

                      Nice video, but I would never buy a VW here in Australia (probably anywhere). Funny - just about everything you said about the VW Touareg regarding luxury I can also tic off on my 89 Celsior (basically a Lexus LS400 with some slightly different options, and the Toyota badge).
                      Differences, only 2 seat memory instead of 3, no cooled glove box, no 3rd cup holder and no proximity censors. But that was in 89. About 2-3 years later and yes, all that stuff come on board, including a car phone. Of course, its not off road capable, but does surprisingly well with traction control when going slow on gravel / sandy tracks. Unfortunately, here in the land of Oz, anyone who buys a VW has rocks in the head. Support here SUCKS, and reliability is a BIG problem here, as well as the lies that they tell (and have now been taken to task for).

                        My mother has a 06' v6 tdi for 10 years now and this thing is bulletproof. Never broken down and only maintenance on 150k miles mostly city driving. Early cars especially with the v10 tdi are horrible and far from reliable but the v6/v8 versions up from 2004 are quite solid cars. And men they're capable offroad. They can climb 45 degree angles and even make some jeeps blush

                              My Golf 4 has the small sun shade over the rear view mirror as well. I am driving in pure luxury.

                                  I believe the first gen Lexus LS400 had the little sun visor over the rearview mirror, but they're definitely not common.

                                    God I wish I knew about this car earlier. My dad got a base level Outback a few years ago and he only does mild/moderate off roading, but the Outback doesn't *quite* do everything he wants, like he would get stuck in some snow before he got it lifted. For like half the price he could have gotten a used Touareg with way more luxury, off road ability, and had all the budget he needed for maintainence.

                                        The reason why it's not a TOUREG.. Is because the word Touareg is an african tribe. Know that the VW Touareg also was a Rally Dakar vehicle competing with the Pajero/Shogun/Montero

                                          The Touareg is a cheap Porsche Cayenne. They're virtually identical, except for the price. My 2004 Cayenne has all those features plus 450hp from a 4.5L twin turbo engine.

Better have deep pockets to reach way down into. Even if you got the car for free it is a hot potato. The question is who is going to get caught holding it when it breaks??? 😳👍 When the music stops someone is going to be crying 🥺😢🤯🤬🧐👍

Two of my favorite things about the car was the turning lamps that illuminated the road on either side of the vehicle depending on which way you put the turn signal and you can open the windows by putting the key in the lock and turning and holding it. Had it for less than a week and the CEL came on. Made an appointment to get it fixed and then a deer totaled it. Then I got a Forester.
