      I'd be interested to see if it is worth it also.

      I found a 2004 3.2 for sale for around 13,000 with about 65,000 on it.

      I'm not sure what they are supposed to go for or what to even look for when buying a used one.

      with that mileage I would get a carfax and ask for service records. Maintenance is important on the Touareg with the correct oil type and service.
      Do a long test drive on different roads and conditions if possible. Take it to get it inspected, if you have a good dealer or relationship with a VW service adviser.


      I have a 2005 v6 with 95k miles and works better than new, will need new brakes soon but love the car.

      Repairs on Touaregs can be expensive for engine, transmission and drive-train.

      Where I live some use Touareg sell very quick.

      There is no timing belt on any of the VR6's. They all have chains.
