Better build than our BMW!

2009 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL 4Motion 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Over 3 years now with our 2009 Canadian Highline model Tiguan, and we still love it. 48K kms and no problems. Took a road trip in June through the Rocky mountains and got awesome fuel economy! Winter driving we swap out our 18inch rims for 16inch aluminum ones with Gislavid winter tires (from Finland) and can plow through snow that the bottom of the chassis is dragging on. It takes 5 days after a major snowfall before the County plows our road, and we have alread had one dump of 35 centimetres and last week another 25cm.
Quiet ride and great handling. Heated leather seats and mirrors. Sirius radio when in the mountains. No nav system, we have the 6 pack CD instead and a Tomtom! Adaptive Bi-Zenon headlights that turn with the steering when on high beam. Love the manual shifting on the transmission when we negotiating steep back roads in the mountains, being able to gear down save wear on the brakes.
