Meet Your Old Sexy High Maintenance GirlFriend
March 8, 2019
Three ups/Three Downs: First, I loved the interior—-an Audi interior at a VW price! Second, this is an Old Man’s Car. High Roofed & Spacious—-it’s like a nimble Lazyboy Recliner on wheels. Finally, the little bug that could can haul Ask when needed!!!
Three Downs: xxxx car stranded me three times dead battery 🔋 How so? If you forget to turn off yer lights during the day (Rain, Fog, Smoke rose Smog, she will turn off yer headlights without also turning off yer running lights, meaning you won’t know you’ve left yer lights on!!! No big, buy a Noco GB40 jumper brick & yer done!
The TSi tensioner. If you are buying a 1ST GEN Tiguan, 2009-12 invist VW swaps out its timing belt tensioner before you destroy your engine! The good news is it’s free as of 01JAN2019.
Finally, watch out for failing Hi Side Fuel Pumps which are tre expensive. You must use VW approved Fluids which is a pain in the Ask and Premium Gas.
All things considered, I like my Tiguan and would recommend a low (<50k Miles car that you dump at 80k milesbut I don’t trust her as I did my last cheating Girlfriend!!!
