We recently spent a long weekend driving the same Touareg V-10 TDI that dominated its class at last year's Pikes Peak hill climb. Read the story here and tell us what you think.

You were honest and that's why I subscribed to your magazine.

I love the idea and execution of the V-10 Touareg but all VW's scare me to death with their electrical system problems.

It was bad enough when just VW made the cars-now five different countries provide parts and three build the cars-it's a recipe for unreliability-as you found out.

I wish I could have saved an article by a rival magazine about the then new VW Turbo Beetle.

This thing left those testers repeatedly and even the controls were crosswired so that you turn on the wipers the rear wing-let moved up and down.

What a RIOT!

Unless it's built in Germany with German parts -they won't get my money,sorry.
