Sold my VW Touareg (V10 TDI) to get a truck and a car. It was a great SUV and did it all but having a truck is very useful.

Picked up this 2006 Titan CC 4x4 for $4200. It is salvage but a lot of the work was already done to get it back on the road. Previous owner was just tired to paying to the shop for storage so I snagged it.

It is a No Fear edition with the lift and wheels. Has Flowmasters and I added a bunch of stuff to get it ready for towing our family around with our 25ft trailer.

Had an Armada years ago and loved it. Looking forward to taking this thing camping and beating it up on some trails!!

Welcome back to the fold! How did you like the germanic ergonomics of the Touareg? I always find Nissan's tried and true control interfaces to be superior than most other brands. It's usually easy to operate a Nissan right off the bat, whether it's a Titan or GT-R. Also, gotta ask: was your TDI part of the VW emissions cheating recall deal?

The v10 was not part of the recall. I don't think it could really pass a smog test if it tried. They didn't even sell them in the US in 2005 because of emissions. The solution in 2006 was to blast some fluid through the filters when they got clogged. So every 3k miles or so you would pour out white smoke. People thought your engine just blew up. Haha. Fun times.

That being said, it was an amazing vehicle. Do it all. Lower the air suspension and throw on my cayenne 20s for a night on the town or raise it up 18 inches with my nitto grapples for off road fun.

I chipped it and was pushing 380hp and 625 lb/ft. With 21mpg. But maintenance is a pain. No one knows how to service them and everything including on sensors requires the engine to come out. Too much work for a shade tree mechanic

after that, even the PITA accessibility of Titan parts would seem easy going. Welcome

haha totally. I love not even having to jack up the truck to work under it. plus everything is WAY easier to find and cheaper. I'm very happy so far. Looking forward to working it this summer.
