Full of faults

Have had this car for a couple of years. Regretting not having sold it after the first fault during first month of purchase (brand new) - Leaking pipe resulting in overheating. It's been one thing after another and am pretty sick of going to the local dealership for warranty repairs. Plus Android Auto is hit and miss most of the time. If you value your hard earned cash, spend it on another brand. Show details

ANDROID AUTO TOTALLY USELESS

We purchased our 2017 VW Tiguan 132TSI 2 years ago. It only had a 3 year warranty and as soon as the warranty ran out recently, we lost Android Auto functionality and a car seat that has jammed up and we can't elevate or lower the seat. Unfortunately the VW dealer couldn't do anything for us without charging for it.
For a relative young car, it's pretty poor that things like this are happening.
On reading reviews online about the Android Auto problems on VW vehicles, I can understand why they don't want to pay for it as there are so many problems and complaints about it.
Apart from that ,the car performs very well and we're happy with it overall, but just disappointed with the lack of support from VW Show details

Excellent purchase

Bought the VW Tiguan last year as a demo with <100km on the clock. Fully kitted it. No faults as yet, not enjoying reading some of the reviews - with an eye to future possible faults. Great car, little smaller internally that wanted and a little heavier on fuel (premium at that) than warranted for such a new car. Would recommend. Show details

European quality and safety

If you are looking for a quality car, with European safety don’t go past the Tiguan Comfortline. Volkswagen’s focus on safety is paramount so if you value this, more that fancy trinkets, this is your car. Show details

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! Show details

Excellent car

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.
