Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Volkswagen Touareg 4x4?
The Touareg is a sizeable SUV with big alloy wheels as standard on every version, so make sure you check each one for kerb damage, because repairs can be expensive. Also, if the wheels are particularly bad, it could be a sign of suspension misalignment, which would led to uneven tyre wear. All tyres will need to be the same brand and type, too, because the Touareg has four-wheel drive.
Make sure there are no deep scratches on the infotainment touchscreen, because that will require an expensive replacement. Also, make sure you clean the screen as per the instructions in the owner’s manual, since it won’t be covered under warranty if you use the wrong stuff.
