Used 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan S in Dulles, VA for Sale
Reviews for 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan
Costly to fix trim and creature comforts
I bought a 2011 Tiguan SEL three months ago and was just loving it until two things happened. First the Shift knob metal parts (not really metal) started delaminating. I found out that to replace the shift knob from VW it's $500.00. I would buy replacement knob if they would give me a real metal one that would last. The second problem is that the beautiful cloth screen that automatically slides over the panoramic sunroof has come loose from the track, not sure why. brought it to VW and a new one is $240.00 but with the labor it's $1,300.00 plus to replace! I would like to keep this car looking beautiful and new but not with these costs. Such a shame that the engineers don't think about costs to repair these fancy features. I would be very careful about buying one of these fully loaded versions without a manufacturers warrantee. I have Maxcare extended warrantee and neither of these issues are covered...:-( My Tiguan had 41k on it when I purchased it.
Great small SUV
We purchased this car for our teenager to use, and so far we couldn't be happier. It's safe, sporty, easy to handle, and has enough "pep" to move but not too peppy.
Love the comfort, love the ease of maneuvering in traffic. Found overall cargo space a little smaller than I thought-still needed to buy a bike rack for my bike. Lights and mirrors are great for older eyes and heavy traffic,parking. Would love to have a slightly wider view from the driver's window-if not adjusted just right, there is still a small blind spot. Gas mileage and price of gas is the only thing that would make me thing twice about purchasing again-requires 91 or > Octane and gets more like 18-19 miles /gl in town, only about 24 on the road and that is on cruise so I do think twice about just driving around with gas prices where they are now. Love to drive the car- it is "Just fun to drive!" I feel like the Roadrunner-MEEP MEEP!
