2007 Volkswagen Touareg Warranty

The 2007 Touareg comes with a basic limited warranty, which includes coverage for four years or 50,000 miles. VW also supports the Touareg with a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.

Though many reviewers agree with Auto Mall USA, which says, "the Volkswagen Touareg feels like a well-engineered vehicle carved from a single block," there are questions about the Touareg's reliability, attributable to Volkswagen's recent reputation for problems in this area. The Boston Herald sums up the view of many reviewers. "The Touareg's wild card -- and this is unfortunate -- is that when one is considering VWs these days, durability is, at best, an open question."
