2009 Volkswagen Tiguan SE 4Motion 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
This is the most amazing value in the small SUV marketplace. The car is almost as fun to drive as our Mini ! The car sounds sporty, and looks like it racing along even parked at the curb. Drives like sporty car not an SUV. Gas mileage around town is 26 mpg and with gas price sky high we are very happy ! The quality and engineering are excellent as is to be expected from V.W. Lots of thoughtful features. But, driving is what's it all about, and the Tiguan is sure to put a smile on your face !
Styling, both inside and out. Comfortable and user friendly driver oriented control. Fun to drive. Engine exhaust sound, aka Triumph TR-6 note.
Standard door sills guards. Available as option. Door threshold sill prone to egress and entry foot dragging and paint scratching. An engine prop-up rod has no place on a vehicle in this price range. Car should have gas charged hood prop rods. I-pod should interface with steering wheel.
