Reviews for 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan
Continuing the VW legacy
As I was considering what next car I should purchase, of course my mind naturally resonated toward the VW. It's what I know and love. I wanted something bigger (I was driving a VW Jetta) but I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg. *Oh, and it HAD to be manual. No exceptions. Every time I went to the VW website, I built a Tiguan every time cause it was a bit bigger and it came in manual. Amazing to me that that was one of the first cars I saw and test drove the day I went out there. By the time the test drive was over, I got that "mmm, I like this." feeling and walked away thinking this is a definite contender. After trying a few other vehicles (yes, the VW Toureg was one of them, which doesn't come in manual) my mind was made up. She's bigger (yes, a she) with WAY more knee room than my Jetta ever did. I like that she's higher off the ground too. So far, the gas to mileage ratio seems within a pretty decent range. My other half never felt comfortable in my Jetta but is much more eager to have me drive, since buying the Tiguan. I like the placement of the cup holders, the rear view windshield, and I've never had a hatchback before and so far, it's much more accessible. I had a sunroof in the Jetta (didn't use it much) and do not have one in the Tiguan which is FINE with me. I appreciate the extra head room I have now. *Did I mention she's manual too? :) Plus now I have the temperature listed right in front of me and I like that the dashboard is more digital. The placement of the knobs,etc are very comfortable and I like the the interior light goes on when you shut the car off to gather your belongings and exit. It's only been a few months now and I still get that giddy feeling when I know I am driving EXACTLY what I had always envisioned. The clincher was purchasing the maintainance package up to 127K miles... that way I can drive her with ease, knowing how finacy the VWs can be sometimes. *If your a VW owner, you know what I mean. I am looking forward to enjoying the heck out of my car, as time goes on. Happy VW owner here.
After some research we found that the name Tiguan is a combination of Tiger (POWER) and Iguana (Fuel efficiency) so we call ours 'The Tiguana'. We find that it really lives up to the name. For a four cylinder it really jumps when called upon, especially in the sport drive. And we are very satisfied with the gas mileage. It's small enough to park in most compact spots and still has plenty of room for four (and one small) passengers and two med size dog kennels in the back. To top it all off, it is simply adorable! Sporty, but a little bit sophisticated. It is, after all, not just an SUV... It's and SUVW!!!
Great clean car
