My 08 3.0 at 41,800k is reaching the end of its warranty and I am looking at options. It has surprisingly solid trade/sale value, and I am looking at moving to a new diesel. The candidates are the X5d and the Touareg2 diesel. One of the appeals of the latter is, " and now for something completely different," to borrow a phrase from Monte Python. Another is the increasing sense I have that, although BMW builds good products, it has lost some significant degree of integrity and post-sale customer orientation--for example, its shameful response to the premature auto trans problems to early 2000 3- series cars. Comments on the Touareg or other aspects of the above?
