After owning the '00 Ford Ranger for more than 8 years, we finally got rid of it and picked up a '05 Touareg! So our Turbo S has a cousin in the family!

We searched all over the Puget Sound, Portland, and even enlisted several dealers to help find us our perfect T-reg. We found ours with a V6 (for slightly better gas mileage) with lots of bells and whistles including Nav, parking assist sensors and heated steering wheel (though 77°F isn't all that hot!) It has 29700 miles on it and is well maintained. I'm still searching for the proper color name, which is Blue/Silver for now. It did not come with a Navigation DVD, so I still need to find and order one. Lots to learn!

It certainly is a big change coming from a underpowered and basic Ranger, but it's a welcome addition to my driveway.

I'm attaching the dealer pics until I can make my own photographs! :cool:

I have a 98 Explorer that has to get through one more winter and then bye bye!

Nice looking SUV. I hope you got one of the good ones as I heard these need lots of TLC. :D

I think my favorite feature so far is the "REST." After turning off the engine, REST will use the residual heat from the engine to keep the interior warm for up to 30 minutes. As chilly as it's been lately, it is SO nice to come out of the store and into a toasty warm T-reg!
