Our much beloved 2000 Jetta TDI gave her all last Saturday. Managed to hit a Dodge 2500 Cummins + 2-axle travel trailer. We're all ok - Jessie the Jetta not so much.
Want to stay in the VW family so we're considering an 04 V8 Touareg, 120K miles, vin around 84000 - dealer asking $11,500. Will get the CF report Saturday. From what I've read in the FAQs here VINs > 45K or so are better. I work from home so the mpg doesn't scare me *that* much ( considering 48-50mpg from Jessie ). We live in the Rockies and love exploring new trails/places so are thinking the 'reg will be a good fit. Owned nothing but VW's since 79. As for family size - 2 adults, 50lb dog and a 3 year old kiddo. Might have another kiddo one day - not sure yet.
Just looking for your input. TIA.
