    Base model 118 TSI has all we need

    published

    Just bought a S/H 2014 base model 118 TSI. With 50,000km, only the reverse camera option, this CUV seems to have been well looked after by previous owner! Easy to drive, plenty of power when needed and enough storage for what we need. Hopefully wont have to spend much more with capped servicing over next couple of years.

    WATER PUMP FAILURE

    published

    VW TIGUAN. Loss of coolant symptom of water pump problems. Water pump failed at 45,000kms. VW considers this fair wear and tear. Not an unusual problem with VW product, it seems. Very expensive to replace. VW totally disinterested and very highhanded. VW insists only VW mechanic can accurately identify problem - all other certified mechanics cannot be relied upon for accurate diagnosis. Beware.

    perfect car so far

    published

    very good car so far
    been driving to work usually.
    occasional trips with steep roads and the car managed really nicely.
    spacious inside and trunk, plenty of room for a family.
    fuel cost around 9-10L/100km
    only downside is because my car is built in 2015, navigation is still old on screen rather than new apple carplay.

    Fantastic Purchase

    published

    Love my new Tiguan, Turbo Charge and Supercharged, 2016 Model but 2015 built. 118TSI First Brand New car I have purchased... With Carplay easily connect my iPhone to my Tiguan with no worries. The only down side is that it would cost an extra $800 to purchase the product key to use VW's voice control in its software, however Siri does it all for free...Drive fantastic, Performance is great I get around 700KM out of a full tank. Services are expensive but normally you can negotiate these for find an authorised mechanic to do it cheaper.

    New car - fluttering noise

    published

    The performance is good but disappointed with the fluttering noise from the engine. Jerky auto on/off function. Too noisy.
    After only 3,000 kms and spending over $30,000, I expected to own the car I test drove - silent.. Drove other 118TSIs which were fairly smooth. Foreman accompanied me to hear the noise I complained about but denied its noisy.
    Booked in for an overview. Hopefully they find something.

    New engine for Tiguan at 60 000km

    published

    Bought a Tiguan 1.4 TSI in 2010. Was very happy with it, up until last month when it suddenly lost power with no warning. The VW roadside assistance was fantastic. However the vehicle needed a new engine. Since then I've had problems. First the clutch, then a petrol leak, now a knocking noise in the rear.

    Hi Sue, my Tiguan also blew an engine at 67 000km. Could they tell you the cause?

    And you gave it 3 stars? How bad does it have to get for 1 star?

    Elegant Tall riding Comfort

    published

    2 months since purchased, just enjoy driving the 118tsi. Powerful, Roomy & comfortable drive.
    Don't regret the choice over Dualis, ASX or CX5. Impressed with the Bluemotion start/stop technology. The fuel efficiency is much closer to what is claimed by VW. pleasure to drive on a freeway or city. Boot space is a small niggle
