Does mileage matter on a Volkswagen Touareg 2.5 TDI? Also are there any common problems with the same vehicle?

Mileage does matter, of course, but not half as much as service history. If it’s been properly looked after, then the Touareg is well-made and reliable, but the 2.5 TDI engine is prone to blowing turbos, and breaking its water pumps, and they’re very hard on tyres. Also, check automobileefully underneath for any signs of damage from over-enthusiastic off-roading.
