FEEL LIKE I HAVE DONE THE BEST PURCHASE EVER
I just purchased this car about a month ago. It is mainly used for daily commute - for work.
My family and I just love how spacious this Allspace edition Tiguan is. It is a 7-seater but when you do not need that extra two seats (mostly meant for children), you get a bigger boot space!
We are happy with the luxury, driving assistance and sound and vision packs too. These packs make driving a more pleasant thing to do and it helps heaps with the parking too! The panoramic sunroof is another bonus to the car!
I would definitely recommend people to get this car if they want something that is not too expensive yet feels expensive!

Best Car I've Owned
This is our weekend car. Its used mostly by my partner. We have already had the screen replaced under warranty and had the Panoramic Sunroof harness changed under a service campaign. But the car is great. Made in Germany.
Purchased in May 2018 at Kevin Denis VW for $54,750.00.
Best bang for your buck.
Best bang for your car vehicle. I purchased the r-line option and it looks great. It is great external and internal and has a punchy engine. No better car for the price tag.

Good, quick and and mostly reliable car
Got the 2010 125kW TSI Tiguan some 9 years ago. Good acceleration (best among SUV), car like dynamics (compared to other SUV). Average city mileage. Not without flaws. Battery changed when 5 yo. Tyres changed at only 40K. A major issue was the water pump when 8 year old (an expensive $1400 service). Quite thirsty in town(11/100), economy increases greatly (8/100) on the freeway. Supercharger getting noisy lately. Would i buy another? If handling and road manners are important, then yes, if luxury and cabin comfort are more important, than my wife's CRV feels/ looks better.

140TDI Diesel is so grunty and very economical! So glad we got all the packs / options 10/10
AMAZING!! This 140TDI is amazing, the fuel economy is out of this world! I am truly loving the power this Tigune has! We get so many complements from everyone, its perfectly styled and we love the aggressive look.
The space inside is very generous and comfortable too. The R-Line pack is by far the best looking pack on any VW in my opinion and having the driver assistance pack makes driving life so much more safe and calm. We all love the huge panoramic sunroof! im so happy we bough this Tigune Highline with all the pack/upgrades. 10/10!!

Intake manifold problem
The vw centre inspect the car and charges me $596 for nothing and just says intke manifold problem which was changed in by the dealer few weeks ago. It has been the dramatic diagnosis and the Vw still says I need to get another intake manifold form dealer
Or either pay 1300 for the new one fitted included labour. The problem here is what if I pay 1300 for the repair and it doesn’t work out. I don’t trust these 2011- 2012 Tiguan car - Tiguan anymore and I don’t believe the Vw Centre in Goldcoast and their diagnosis Style. They should have spare manifold to check the real problem and then perform the report which gives clear vision of what has to be done and what is the one to repair. Performed sin by buying this car. Report says - I take manifold problem if no ecu. Charged $596. I wish Australia had strict guild lines about these Vw car like USA has and followed their path and good legal system to help common citizens. I am sandwiched between dealer and Vw centre for the repair and there is not relieve. Vw all cars are crap and repairers are just evenworst trash....
Purchased in December 2018 at Dealer for $10,125.00.
I bought my 2017 Tiguan froma gentleman who had owned it for about 12 months. It is lovely to drive, very comfortable and has all the features you would expect.
I like the way it handles and the reversing camera. perhaps I was easy to please I had previously owned a Polo which was a wondeful car too. The Tiguan has great seating positions so is very comfortable for a long drive.

I just LOVE my New VW Tiguan Special Edition Wolfsburg 4WD SUV!!!!
I purchased this car from VW Ringwood about 3 weeks ago now. I live in Rural Victoria. I just love this car and all the many safety features that come with it. I purchased it as my retirement car after looking at many, many reviews. Beautifully made - fantastic to drive - and I am still working out the many safety features that this vehicle comes with. It is early days - but so far - excellent. One small down side - to disengage the Stop/Start Feature (This is the feature where when you are in heavy traffic the motor turns off to save fuel when you are stopped - and once you touch the accelerator off it goes again) each time you start the vehicle you have to press the button on the console that then disengages this function. I would have preferred an option to turn it off permanently - and be able to turn it back on if you find that you ever need it. Other than that - so far - I can't fault this vehicle!!

GREAT VALUE SUV
We bought this car from a Ringwood dealer August 2018. The vehicle was 1 year old and was bought as a demo.
It's the mid spec Comfortline 132 TSI 2 litre turbo.
So far we are very impressed with the economy to performance ratio with the 2 ltr turbo. It pulls away from a standing start smartly with little sign of turbo lag. For overtaking it's a breeze. Safety features are the main highlight of this vehicle and there are tons of good features. The best thing was that the insurance with RACV was so cheap because of the safety rating. We're rapt!
The vehicle is comfortable to drive,has plenty of storage in the front and rear, and it has 4 driving modes to choose from. This car isn't really lacking in anything that I can think of,except my Samsung S7 isn't compatible with Android/Apple car play for some reason.
Perfect for small family
After doing lot of research bought tiguan 118 tsi..it s perfect suv for small family with young kids,for every day use ..i m getting 8 l /100..
Good mileage in summer than winter . haven't had any problem yet .
Purchased in November 2014 for $31,000.00.
Love this car, come with any additional, safety we want, luxury comfort vehicle. Love the driving assistance, panorama sunroof, leather seats, keyless entry and engine start. The most important thing is auto drive, especially on the motorway, the car is driving itself, which is realisable. Love the shape and sporty look with 4 motion drive.
Perfect economical family car!!
We purchased the VW Tiguan Allspace 6 weeks ago brand new and couldn’t be happier!! It is the perfect size for our family and the extra seats have come in handy on numerous occasions. We purchased the 2.0L Turbo Diesel and it fuel efficiency is outstanding!! We use this car for our everyday driving to and from school drop off, work and kids after school activities. So plenty of short local trips done. Have also done a couple of long distance trips to test fuel consumption and couldn’t be happier!! Well done VW you have produced a reliable and economical family car.
Beware new VW buyers. Dishonest. Known common faults on many models. Read our experience
My wife purchased brand new Tiguan. Top model costing $50,000 Even now the new model sounds like a very suitable car for her, but we would never buy another vw product. Just google it for yourself.
Yes the cars feel great to sit in and drive, but please google the faults and VW attitude for yourself before buying a new vw.
Car filled with water from sunroof fault (common problem). Things were floating around the floor.
We had to have the ENTIRE interior removed and dried out. There were small mold trees growing under the seats!
Fuse box burnt out in engine bay (common problem)
DSG transmission erratic (common problem)
Aircon fan blower motor failed (common problem)
Sunroof headlining fell out
Dealer-fitted accessories started to fall off but servicing dealer would not rectify as they were not the actual vw dealer who fitted them. This should have been covered by any vw dealer.
Dash warning lights serially come on for no reason but vw say it’s no problem
Rattles and squeaks, omg! On many road surfaces it sounds like a plumbers work van inside!
Badges faded in colour.
Aircon barely cool on hot days.
During warranty period, dealer ignored our reports of dsg problems.
VW insisted on using a very expensive DSG oil in transmission. Some years later they changed their story and said to use a very different oil and that the special oil had been causing many of the vast number of problems. Poor owners had been paying for the expensive oil and actually causing problems in the process.
The dealers extended warranty wasn’t worth the paper it’s written on, when we looked more closely.
The fuse box caught fire under bonnet and is common. Despite a recall, the Penrith NSW dealership said that only the $1 fuse was covered by recall and we had to pay $800 for the new fuse box. They offered to ask VW Australia for a goodwill replacement of the faulty part and when I questioned this, the service staff member told me that he now wouldn’t even request the goodwill offer. A call to VW Aus proved that the dealer was lying and the repair was fully covered and arranged at another dealer. How dishonest!
Our car is not new anymore, but I urge anyone considering a new vw, go and do some research yourself. Google VW faults and read about the customer experiences and dishonest practices customers write about all over the internet. Read also about customers experience with timing chain (belt?) issues and the lies they have been told. Google is your friend lol
Remember vw falsifying emission tests worldwide?
We purchased the top of the line model, and when it rains I need to run outside and tie a tarp over the roof of the car to stop the water flooding in! Truly, this was the top of the line model at the time? Give me a break. Never again VW for us. We know a number of other vw owners who have reported great disappointment with breakdowns of their vw. Message on the instrument panel indicates one thing but it’s always something much more major and costs a fortune to fix because a normal mechanic tries to fix what the instrument cluster reports, whereas only vw scan tools can detect true source of the problem and they are very expensive repairs. Please google and inform yourself before you buy any vw product.
We fear the transmission will fail anytime soon...despite recording our concerns at every service and being ignored.
She is still driving the car, but what a joke to have to tarp the roof when it rains and find undercover parking whenever the forecast says a possibility of storms.
What a disappointing experience owning this “quality European car” has been. I think in fact it’s built in Mexico?
Dreadful experience overall.
German engineering at its best!!
We use the Tigaun as a family car, it's very spacious and comfortable! Plenty of room for 5 people and our puppy, serviced every 10,000 kilometers. Mechanic said this is a very reliable and fuel efficiency is excellent! We love the turbo diesel and will definitely be purchasing a future model
So much better and roomier than the previous generation
We love our Tiguan, it has all the benefits of the Golf but with a great ride hide and comfort. We had the previous Tiguan and found while good, it lacked the space to be a true family SUV. The current Tiguan is just perfect in so many ways, the size, power and features.
Lovely car to drive, would like to see some improvements in the newer models
I drive the car mainly for travel to and from work, school pick up and drop off and any other errands etc that I need to travel around for. I use the car daily, there are very few days that I don't drive at all.
Mostly really like this car, the sensors took a little getting used to and I love the reverse camera and birds eye view when parking. I have 2 car seats in the back and when it is just the family in the car, this is ample room for all. If we need to put someone in the middle on the backseat, it is very squishy. The navigation system on the car is not as good as the navigation through Google Maps when the phone is connected. The climate control and heated seats are great. Love the screen and the options available. Controls on the steering wheel make it easy when driving. I don't like the engine shutting off when staying still at lights etc as there is a bit of a lag when it starts again, have had this on other cars and when the engine restarts, there is no lag. Otherwise a great car.
Purchased in May 2018 at Ferntree Gully Volkswagen.
Lovely little car
LOVE this car so much! It's such a joy to drive and easy to navigate. There is plenty of space within the car without it being super bulky. It has great speed and great modifications. I am very tall so get very uncomfortable on long drives but the Tiguan is super comfy and added bonus that it looks super smart too. :)
Best car I've owned
This is my second Tig. I bought a used 2010 model 3.5 years ago and loved it. A year ago (October 2017) I wanted to upgrade and bought the 2017 110 TDI Comfortline version. Couldn't be happier. The options that come with the Comfortline are amazing. Love the leather seats, front seats heated, sunroof, driving assistance package (cruise control, lane assist, etc) and I could go on. The Adaptive Cruise Control function is something I use every day, whether driving on suburban streets or the freeway - it's ability to moderate the speed according to how close you are to the vehicle in front is fantastic and makes driving much less stressful, as well as helping to avoid unintentional speeding fines! I found the boot space in the earlier model a bit limiting, but they increased it in 2017 and I find it adequate. You can easily release the back of the rear seats to fall forward if you need more space - you can do this from inside the boot itself as well as from each side of the rear seats - another convenience.
The economy of the diesel engine is also great. Around town, I'm usually achieving between 6 and 7 litres per 100 kms. On a trip, it can go down to around 5 - can't complain about that!!. And although the smallest diesel VW offers in the Tig, it has plenty enough power. If you plant your boot, it will take off fast. If you want to tow a trailer with a good load (rated up to 2000 kgs), it handles it easily (be aware, however, that VW only allow max. 100 kgs on the towball, so you have to be a bit careful how you load the trailer or the type of caravan you tow).
All round, I highly recommend this as a family vehicle or just as your normal vehicle because as an SUV it's higher off the road and for a 70-year old like me I find it much easier to get in and out of than my wife's Mazda 3 (which by the way is another great car in all other respects).
Nice dry weather car
Front sensors and cruise control can cease to operate in light rain. Sales staff say they are unaware of the problem. Our car is early 2017 model and Management were saying at the time they were unaware of the problem, it's happened to us 5 times in 16 months and we know how dry it's been, now there saying refer to the Manual which says it can happen in extreme wet conditions, who reads the manual before they buy a car, and it can happen in any sort of wet conditions. VOLKSWAGON HAS IGNORED ALL OUR COMPLAINTS, AND NOW SAY THE CASE IS CLOSED.
Recently purchased a used 2008 TDi model for my son. Came with a near new tow bar and the full sun roof. A one owner well maintained car.
I am really impressed with this car. Good solid well build German engineering. Runs on the smell of an oily rag. Happy to recommend this as a great family car.
