I'm a Passat driver (have participated at VWVortex for several years) but with two growing kids, the need for cargo room on occasion, and now our in-laws who have a pop-up which we can use anytime if we can tow it, I'm in the market for a used vehicle. I was very impressed with the XC when I test drove it a couple years ago. My neighbors are an all-Volvo family so they rave and rave. I've only been leaning toward a used Touareg because 1) I've liked my Passat, 2) new ones are too expensive for me, 3) the ones I've test drove have been well equipped, including towing packages, and 4) our not-quite-local-but-the-closest-I-have Volvo dealer was totally unhelpful to help me know what a XC can or can't tow and how much it's gonna cost me to outfit a used XC. <p>I like how the Volvo is a good all around hauler. It's not quite as luxurious as the Touaregs I've seen but I still like is blend of performance with an attractive package. I just have no answers to knowing whether I can pull a pop-up with this and how I'm gonna know how and at how much cost to equip an XC. An '04 V8 Touareg I called on today had already been traded in by the owner. She complained of the many service issues she had with it, and ultimately traded it in. (I was the first caller in 6 weeks.) She couldn't say enough good about Volvos while steering me at length to reconsider my Touareg shopping. But alas did not know anything about their hauling limitations.<p>Can anyone help me to know what I can and can't do with an XC70? What power it has or doesn't have for towing? This former Touareg owner recommended I come visit this site. . .<p>Thanks!
