    No one can pronounce the name.

    I think that's the one that can go up ridiculously steep inclines.

    they used cheap parts in the building of the frame when they shouldn't have.

    It's a damn good soft-roader and has some off-street cred as well.

    VERY high-quality interior, but they did cheap out on some off-roading gear which is A. easily replaced and B. only bitched about by hardcore dirt freaks.

    The early models have awful reliability problems. I'd avoid a first or second year run, but you might not have any problems whatsoever with said model years. :dunno:

    It IS NOT a cheaper Cayenne or Q7. Keep that in mind.

    Yea, I love the car with a passion and have had no problems whatsoever (other than a quirky cd player). However, I would definitely steer clear of 04/early 05 models. :hs:

    i love VWs.
    but not that one. not the early model, anyway.
    and i would take every word on the vortex with a grain of salt.
