Volkswagen Touareg 2008 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Touareg 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Ask Smithy Xtra Early updated to brakes on VW Touareg

    The problem is that no one can tell you what is fair wear and tear; there is no benchmark that determines what the life of the brakes should be. In the “good old days” when we all drove around in cars with drum brakes it was relatively simple, the brakes would last a long time and no one worried about brake wear, although the brakes were often so poor in those old cars it was hard to tell when the brakes were worn out. VW is correct in saying brakes are made of different materials today to get the braking performance we want, and as a result they wear out faster. Your experience is not unusual, it happens on a lot of cars, particularly those from Europe. I doubt you will have any success claiming against the warranty; your best course of action is to seek legal advice and perhaps claim the car has not performed to your expectations, and VW has not lived up to its end of the bargain when they sold you the car.
