Any horror stories?
I think you've got the idea
Of all of those the Touareg is probably one of the least costly to run and it still costs a fair bit.
Local MPG we get around 18mpg
On long run without trailer 26mpg
On a long run with a trailer 20MPG
Costs £105 to fill up with diesel lasts about 10 days of my wifes local school runs shopping etc.
Tyres are 250 each (19" alloys) and last about 14k miles
Servicing is about £350 for a average service until you get need a cambelt change then you are looking at about £1000
Tax is £400.00 p/a
If you want to extend teh warranty after the 3 years is up then you are looking to fator in a cost of about £600p/a for a decent aftermarket wty.
However they are great cars to drive and certainly ideal for towing the rib!.
