Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.346 reviews) This car is solidly build. That goes not only for it feeling like a fortress when you're in it, but also the drive quality. It doesn't come across as a low quality vehicle in any way. Even the seats are firm, but extremely comfortable. I'm looking forward to our long road trip next month. Looks relatively small from the outside, but has so much room on the inside. The sliding rear seats are probably the key to the extra space when you need it. We got this car because my wife didn't really like her fully loaded 2010 Forester which began to show some wear after just 17k miles. This one gets significantly better mileage than the turbo 4 in the Subaru. There are so many factors that we found made this better than the Forester. Her major attraction to it is that it's cute and there aren't so many of them on the road. This is our second VW and we're now wondering why we haven't had one is 5 years. We trade out cars pretty regularly, but I think this one will be sticking around longer than usual. My only knock would be that I'd like the option of the V6 that gets put in the Audi Q5 (or a diesel option for that matter). But since that is their premium brand, I understand why it's omitted from the possible options in this one.

Great Car

Compact yet has room for groceries and many other items . the right rear seat folds down for more items. it has seat warmers!! so neat!! I had an aftermarket rear view mirror installed. I love the mirror, but the camera is right where the trunk release is. When you open the trunk , you have to be very careful not to touch the camera.

Terrible car

I have owned many cars over the years and VW's are by far the worst. I owned 2 Tiguans. The first one a 2010 i had for almost 2 years and some of what they had to replace or repair the following: brake pads rotors door handles door locks ignition body side trim The left rear door handle came off when I tried to open it one day. The door locks would not work from the remote very often and you would get locked out of the car since it has no exposed key holes. For this they tried to replace the door locks, which did not help, so then they replaced the ignition after having the car in the shop 5 times for the same problem. The trim around the wheels was defective and had to be replaced. So I thought maybe a newer one would be better, how wrong I was. The second one a 2012 I owned for only 10 months and gave up on it, some of what it had to have replaced of repaired: brake pads rotors cabin filter fuel pump water pump transmission software engine management software body side trim front trim under bumper The car when put in to Reverse would make a terrible grinding noise, this they said was a known problem and just like on the 2010 they replaced the brake pad and rotors within a month of ownership. The engine was making a whining noise which turned out to be a bad water pump. The car was and automatic and would try to get to 6th gear as soon as possible so it would lug and make a droning noise as normal street speeds, another known problem and they updated the transmission software. Then the trim on the driver�s door was falling off and they said it was defective from the factory when installed and they could not fix it and had to replace it. The car also had a terrible smell inside and VW determined there was a defective cabin filter and changed it. The front trim under the bumper was falling off twice before they determined it had to be replaced as it was defective. I was driving on the street and the car suddenly shut off and I lost control of it due to the electric brakes, steering, and gas pedal design. I was able to glide it to stop luckily without incident. After a week in at VW service they changed the defective fuel pump that they had to order from Germany and had to update the engine computer to accept it. The next day after I got it back the check engine light came on and they had needed to open a case with VW to attempt to fix it. I then gave up and paid to get rid of it. These are just some of the reason not to buy a Tiguan or a VW in general. The only reason I see to buy one is if you want a free Gremlin with every purchase�.
