I saw one and loved the size and style. It was exactly the type I was looking for, but I thought I could not afford a Volkswagen. I test drove one locally, and I loved it so much I went online and started looking. I found this used one on cars.com and drove 3 1/2 hours to buy it. It holds an unbelievable amount of cargo, and the ride is awesome. Even on long drives we don't get fatigued. Best car I ever owned!

Worst Car I have ever owned

I have had problem after problem with this car. If you want to have a lot of issues and put a lot of money into a car, then this car would be great for you. I will never own a VW again. The fuses overheat and melt. The serpentine belt, burns a hole in the A/C hose, so you have to go without AC in the hot/humid Midwest summer. I am beyond frustrated and VW customer service is ridiculous to say the least.

Was needing an AWD to move from TX to CO. (retirement). Looked at MazdaCX5 and couldn't stop looking for a Tiguan. Just loved the look. Found a 2011 with only 25,,000 miles...sunroof, heated seats (nice for CO right) and nav. All the bells and whistles. Beautiful car, so for that I can give it a five. After reading all the reviews makes me scared of the little things that might go wrong? My question is .. I was told I don't HAVE to use Premium gas,, but..I want to do whats best. Can I get some answers on what you use and what you think? I traded in an Altima Coupe I was getting 24 mpg. Just interested in the gas you all use. Thank you.

Volkswagen quality, where are you?

My husband and I purchased a 2011 Tiguan and had traded our 2006 Jetta in. With the Jetta, we had normal maintenance and very few problems. That all changed when we purchased the 2011 Tiguan. Having the problems: fuses overheating, back-up camera issues, struts and our list goes on. From December 2014 to April 2015 our struts have literally died. The shop we took it to (a dealership) could not believe how horrible they were and how quickly they had deteriorated. Having their used car warranty, we were told that at least one of the struts would be covered, only to be told that they were not covered and for $1500 we could get this repaired. Yikes! Now, if this was the first major issue we had had in the year and half we have owned this car, that would be one thing. Yet, the amount of time I have spent at the shop is ridiculous. It took me over a year to have one problem resolved. The back up camera wasn't working consistently and of course there was nothing wrong with it. I was told to video it if it happened again. I did, however I still had to fight to get it fixed. Fixed, not really. Just a few days ago both the radio and the back-up camera died. I made a video and have no doubt that this will be another battle. The first took so long our regular warranty almost ran out. Now it's gone and we are on the VW used car warranty from them and it is the most comprehensive coverage available. Yet, we have just been told NO! to having our struts replaced. Be very, very careful when purchasing a used 2011 Tiguan. This has been a huge money pit and we have never had to put out this kind of money on any other vehicle we have owned. I am hopeful that no one else has had the problems we have and that Volkswagen will step up and do what is right. Both for the struts and the media center.

I bought this car for my daughter with 11k on it. The bang for the buck is untouchable. I have found myself driving this myself a few times for errands. It drives like an AUDI and has everything anyone could want in a car. I wouldn't think twice about buying one again.
