Not at all what I expected
I have a 2018 vw tiguan 4 motion SEL 90,000 Kms -stored during summer - have had so much trouble with it . I’m ready to ditch it . Engine light on -they found all kinds of issues with thermostat housing leaking coolant and the coil spring broken along with ball joint . Then there’s the control arm bushings that are separated and need replacing . All this happened since my last visit 3 months ago ;( My recommendation: do not buy this version . It’s sad because I waited for the new version of the Tiguan before buying . Guess I should have waited a little longer 🙁
Love this car!!
I love my Tiguan. I have seen some complaints about the seats not being comfortable, However, I find mine to be vastly more comfortable then other cars I have been in. I have the SEL Premium so that may have something to do with it. That being said, The car is beautiful and all of my friends just love it many saying they wish they had a car like mine. Three of them are currently looking at getting a Volkswagen as their next car. Overall, it rides nice, has great features at a price point that could not be beat, and the car does pretty well on mileage in my opinion. I still walkout and see my car and think "wow that is a great looking car." The only issue I have is a pretty trivial one, the sports mode which has a fantastic "zip" uses a bit too much gas. I would buy this car over and over again. I love it I also have never had a problem on any of my trips to and from NY and Florida
Looks nice, not reliable
Had a 2018 Tiguan SE for 7 years, was a great car for the first 5 though its acceleration was weak and it sometimes felt jumpy in the highway, even with new engine coils and spark plugs. In addition to regular maintenance, I would always take it in for a tune up before roadtrips and got any necessary maintenance required. With less than $70k miles on it, during a roadtrip the engine lost the ability to accelerate while on the interstate, after $1,000 in repairs plus a hotel and a delayed trip, it did it again at 74k miles, leaving me stranded in a different state again. That cost me $900 of repairs, a rental, and 3 days of missed family time. This car is unreliable and I would. It recommend it. The interior and body were great, loved the pano sunroof.
