2009 Volkswagen Tiguan SE 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I have had my new White SE Tiguan for 1 month and I am really enjoying driving again. I sold my 9 year old Camry and do not miss it one bit (it was very reliable but BORING, yet the gas mileage was great). I can't rate the reliability yet, but so far I am very pleased, and no real quality issues to address, but I do agree that the Turbo is rather jerky at times and leaving from a stop light turning right it is jerky accelerating to get going, almost like I am driving a stick in a low gear (which I do not have the manual, and I have no need or desire to use the shifting option). The dealer really came down on the sticker price - I got the pricing below a comparable Honda CRV/or RAV4.
The Cabin is very quiet which I love. Very peppy, fast and fun. Very comfortable interior. I love the all black interior.
Turbo is rather jerky. Ipod integration could be more upscale. Prefer a larger gas tank, have to fill up every 300 miles.
