I would buy another Touran without a moments hesitation, but next time with a DSG box
I own a 1.9SE TDi and can only fault it for 2 things, those being rapid front tyre wear and smoke from the auxiliary heater. The car was returned to the dealer within 5 days of purchase after it started smoking and was told to just let it develop. I have taken it back several times since (to another dealer) who have carried out all the modifications available, but I still have the problem. If the problem still exists when the warranty expires I wonder what VW's position will be as the problem has never been cured from when the car was new.
As for the tyres wearing badly on the inside and now down to the legal limit at 13000 miles I am surprised at this.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
