Shame on VW

published

Since I purchased this car I have replaced the following parts which are common issues for lots of people.Cluch kit which cost me more than $3000
The roof was leaking as is sunroof so i`ve put silicon on the plastic tubes,because of the leak roof liner was gone had to replace that, the roof curtain stopped working new one cost more then $1000.00
After that intake manifold replaced it twice as it fails all the time,next fuel injectors replaced then fuel pump failed, after that started leaking so main seal was replaced
I can only say one thing would not recommend this car to worse of enemy
and again shame on vw for cheating on people

Purchased for A$13,000.00.

Good, quick and and mostly reliable car

published

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.

Purchased in June 2010.

Great no frills little SUV from VW

published

I bought my 125TSI Tiguan in June 2010. So far so good. No repairs needed. It has fantastic acceleration, corners almost like a Golf and much better that the average SUV. It is a comfortable long distance cruiser as well. Plenty of space inside. The luggage area is adequate for suburban living. The car is very economical for long freeway trips at 7.5l/100km and usually gets 11.2l.100km around town. One issue. VW service dealership was overcharging so I went back to my previous Honda service provider.
