Volkswagen Touareg, SUV
Oct 17, 2004 (9:45 pm)
We drove a 2005 Volkswagen Touareg V6 off the lot today.
Reflex Silver, with Premium Pack II (leather trim, powered seats, sunroof, etc), Navigator and Electronic Parking Assistance.
We were given proper documentation and manuals and a set of 10 CDs covering the US and Canada.
Final price was $42,000 including taxes (8.25% here in northern california).
Hope this is of help for others. We made several trips to VW dealers our area and lots of phone calls. It took us about two weeks.
We drove both the 2004 and the 2005 (220hp and 240hp respectively) and there was no big difference.
Can't wait for snow time to make a trip to the mountains
Good luck on your car search

Very good deal!
I bought a new 2004 Touareg V8 with...
Premium Plus Pkg
this came out to be $3800 below Dealer Invoice.
Got the deal from McKenna VW in Huntington Beach through the internet fleet person.
There seems to be quite a few 2004 V8's left out there.
I was considering a Land Rover LR3, but now after 2 weeks with the VW, I am soooo liking my Touareg. I didn't know there was so much positive buzz about this vehicle. I read a lot of car mags and stuff, but even non "car guys" seem to know what a great car this is.
#138 of 310 Is this a decent deal ? Should I be able to get better ?

NYC area dealer
2004 V8 Touareg
(I think this equates to the Equipment Package #2 not sure though if these were sold separately on the 04)
$45000 Before Tax
I would be more happy Paying $41000, I dont know what the incentives are this time of year.
I would be buying the car practically cash and financing the last $10000 (I dont know if that makes any difference to the dealer)
The 2004 V8 is pretty much identical to a 2005 V8, and a similar spec 05 is $49,125 MSRP
Does anyone have any advice ?

The post just above yours indicates a purchase price closer to $43K, but that's in WV.
First, you'll want to hit the "new cars" tab at the top of this page, and build & price your Touareg. That will show you invoice price, MSRP, and the price others in your area are paying for the same vehicle. You'll also get a link to incentives & rebates available for your region.
I had a quick look, and it seems you might have trouble getting down that low, but who knows?

#140 of 310 Bought my Touareg
Nov 09, 2004 (2:36 pm)
I've just purchased a new 2004 V8 Touareg on an internet referral. It's a base V8, but that's OK because it has all the bells and whistles I need.
The price was $36,797. They gave me $17,000 trade-in on my 2002 Nissan Pathfinder LE.
Two weeks earlier the same dealership had quoted me $39,000 on the Touareg and a trade-in of $14,200 on my Nissan. This was walking in off the street. Must have been a huge salesman's commission.
It pays to shop via the net. And do shop because different internet services resulted in different prices as well. this was the lowest, and surprisingly it led me back to the same dealership I started at.

What internet service did you find most helpful?

I bought from the dealer contact via autoweb, but try several. All work with different dealers in an area. One for example had the nearest dealer about 75 miles away. I'd recommend getting contacts from four or five internet services and comparing prices.
#145 of 310 Am I getting a good deal on 04V8?
Nov 19, 2004 (2:46 pm)
I was quoted $42,000 for a reflex silver 04 V8 with:
Navigation I & Sound Sytem II
It is also financed by VW.
Also, the build date for the car is April 2004. Would this date be late enough to give me less problems?
I appreciate any advice anyone can provide.
