I was awaken at 4am by the popping & eery whistling noises of my 2004 VW Touareg on fire. Still not sure if it was arson or some sort of electrical malfunction that may be typical of this car. I've had numerous electrical malfunctions to the dashboard computer alerting me that my emergency brake was on when it wasn't, or that the tire pressure had changed when it had not, or that the brake pads need to be replaced when in fact they didn't. I want to find out if anyone else has had an experience of their Touareg mysteriously catching on fire?
#263 of 310 Buying our leased vehicle?
Apr 04, 2007 (12:21 pm)
Our lease on a 2004 V6 Touareg runs out June 4. Our buyout price on the car is $21,591.08 with taxes, tag and title.
The car is in perfect (excellent) condition inside and out, has 26,450 miles on it, standard AM/FM singel CD player, fold-in mirrors, Xenon headlights, moon roof, new tires... no other major options.
I was thinking about purchasing it and trying to resell it, as Private Party value is between $26,100-$27,100.
Is it worth it, or should I just give it back to VW?

Post details in our Real-World Trade-In Values discussion to make sure Touaregs are really selling for that in your area. If so, it might be worth the hassle, but you sure don't want to get burned.

I sold my 2004 V6 last November for $24k. It had 45k miles, xenons, PP2, air suspension, and upgraded stereo. It was in perfect shape, non-smoker, one driver, new brakes, new tires, ski racks, all recalls and issues sorted out. It was on the market for 5 months, starting at a $28k asking price. I had a really hard time getting people to even look at it. The first and only people to look at it bought it. I told them to be sure and take a look at what the local dealers had in stock and they found mostly base lease turn-backs with worn interiors, smoker's cars, etc. I had it listed on Cartrader and the local papers. Most of the people that called had various scams to list the car on some site for about $150. Pure BS. Very hard to hook up with real buyers. My advise is that if you like the car and want to keep it, buy it off lease. Otherwise, just say goodbye. You stand no chance to make any money on the car. The dealer will have to certify the car, which you cannot do, for about $1600. That leaves him about $1500 or maybe a little more to turn the car. It would be lucky for the dealer to retail that car at $25k. You won't be able to get $23k. The market for used base 2004 Touaregs is not very strong.

What did you pay?
#268 of 310 purchase 04 off lease
Jun 23, 2007 (8:40 pm)
I just purchased my 04 v6 off lease for 19000. It was much easier for me to do this than go through the hassle of dealing with a new car purchase. I have 26000 mi on it and it has been maintained by the book. My thought was to sell/trade in in a few months, since it seemed that the purchase price was less than the value. does anyone have a comment? also it seems that the driveshaft bushing failed tonight. This should be covered, right?
