New one is a great car, I wouldn't say the same about either previous one.

The items listed above failed on my Touareg, each of them is part of the diesel emissions control system. Read the VW and Mercedes forums and the same things fail with high occurrence on DEF-using vehicles. The high rate of failure of these items is why the reliability is questionable. Actually, there is no question, these vehicles are unreliable.

edit: the turbo is not strictly a part of the emissions control system. It is a high failure frequency item on the VW 3.0 TDI.
Ps. Isn't all that crap covered by 10 year emissions warranty?

Original or did you replace the plastic piece of shit they use? Replacing the plastic impeller and RFT's are my first two steps on any BMW. Good luck with putting humpty back together again.

Since they are older, reliability and maint costs is likely a high priority. If that's the case, I'd got Japanese. The Acura MDX is hard to beat.
