Supercar Messiah - 7062

Hey , Could use your advice , I have the option to buy the extended warranty for the Touareg for $4,000.00 , 2 years or 40,000km (& $100 deductible)

I just had new brakes (pads callipers rotors drum), control arm , think a new strut too , whole new steering module and pump.

its got 100 000 km on it now ...

it seems like a rip off like most extended warranties , but should I discount it so fast ?

the only thing I've heard about going wrong with them is some of the electrics.

all depends on what engine/how long you want to keep the car.

I never recommend purchasing an extended warranty. You wouldn't get that 4 grand back with repair.

Does that warranty even cover all possible costs?

I usually think this way , but I have seen the parts that have been replaced in the first few years under warranty & it adds up.


but if there is something common like water pump failure at around 100k I wanna know how much that stuff is liable to cost me.

not likely , all friction parts will not be covered. and there is still a $100 deductible , so if a repair is 400$ I still have to pay the first $100 , same goes for all small repairs.

Took a diesel 2010 Touareg out while I was in , it was basically the same car inside as mine but the engine is 15X better , much faster. just over 400 lb ft of torque was great and 20-25% better fuel economy.


they wanted 42K for it with 100 000 km on it ...lol

I looked on auto trader and found some same year 1/2 the km's for 35K

what year is it? that might make all the differnce in the world, but $4k seems excessive.

I got an extended warranty for the GTO because I only had like 6 months left on the factory warranty when I got it. rolled an extra 1300 into the financing for an extra 2 years of coverage, and I ended up getting about 1800 in repairs over the next two years (ECU, radiator, clutch master cylinder, parking brake cable, labor, labor, labor, labor).

I was fighting the mold in the bowl with my pee when a thought popped into my brain

maybe , but all the same financial obstacles still come into play , you don't trade cars without someone taking a piece of the pie.

More importantly I don't see a car in this segment I like as much as the Touareg.

theres nothing I know that goes wrong with those engines. the electrical problems I've seen are mostly with rear lights and I've had to replace 1 wheel bearing (IIRC that cost 1200). end call is up to you. for 4k though I think its a bit much.

I can see that kind of stuff happening on a GM. Good you got the warranty.

diesels are the best engines for cars like this

or infact any car over or near 2000 kg

hell yeah , Parents have Diesel GL and S class and they are pretty amazing.

in NA though our diesel options are kinda limited , they are getting better but they are usually pretty expensive.

They still have my Touareg ,... its been in 4 times (5 now) and they have replace power steering pump , new steering module ... and they still cant find the problem ...

they think it might be electrical ... ( i think its whatever controls the speed sensitive steering for some reason)


symptoms: power steering is erratic , like might turn fine right but left will be stiff as a brick ... if I wilggle the wheel a bit , the side that its stiff might change.

in the morning its stiff and almost non existant.

when you turn a corner , normally the wheel will wrap back to center , currently it just tracks ...

topping up fluid helped , for like a second then back to inconsistent.

might be some air in the system. other than that it could be anything. I don't really have a ton of experience with the touregs (we only get 1 V6 Cayenne that comes to the shop and he hasn't had any problems).
