This document focuses mostly on Touaregs sold in North America, although hopefully it will grow to become a comprehensive FAQ for all Touaregs sold worldwide.
This document is not intended to function as a replacement for the owner's manual, but does identify and correct several mistakes and deficiencies in the official VW manual.
An owner of a V-10 TDI Touareg in Florida reports a running average of 19.7 MPG in mixed driving and 28.5 MPG at a constant 50 MPH. According to Jamie Vondruska's, article on VWVortex.com, the V-10 Touareg is "the one to get." It has been said that people buy horsepower, but drive torque. This may make the vehicle more suitable to towing, although the official towing rating is the same on all models.
The higher torque output will also allow the V-10 TDI equipped Touareg to accelerate faster than the gasoline V8.
