Excellent question. I just picked up one for my wife. It is an 06' (sold new in July of 2007 - which means the 4/50 factory warranty will run through July of 2011) with only 5k miles. I paid $38k less trade on wife's old CRV - We got $18k for that.

I've only had it now for two weeks, but we love it. As you might expect it has incredible power and torque to pull buildings over and at an original sticker of $71k - fully loaded. I can't opine as to problems as we have had none in the first two weeks of ownership. I had been lurking for quite sometime looking for either a Cayenne TT or a Touareg V10-TDI and this one came up for sale here locally. I'm sure you already know the Porsche holds value much better than the VDub. That said, the fit and finish in the VDub is outstanding and I would have had to pay much more than I did to get a more heavily used Cayenne TT.

A few Pics and a nice video:

Not yet, but the wifey claims poor mileage. I will check it out. I just started commuting to work on my bike (road bike) so we're fine. I'm in the business (oil & gas) so I'm not to worked up about spending a few more dollars at the pump on diesel - if I am in fact doing that. I will let you know.
