Funny how things change.
There is a very strong rumor among Veedubphiles that the brand name is about to be dropped faster than a hot Edsel. Seems the SUV's namesake, the actual Tuareg people, triggered the coup in the Mali capital Bamako last year that was later hijacked by Islamist jihadists.
Not exactly good press for the brand name when you Google "2012 Tuareg".
What was I thinking?
