Wow!!! What a fun ride!
By Tiggin' on
2009 Volkswagen Tiguan S 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
First VW since my 1974 rust bucket bug. Love the power, handling, utility and the price. I bought the base model with the manual tranny. This is one really fun and tight ride. An excellent balance of comfort and crisp handling. I have owned an acura, Nissan, Chevy, Ford and nothing compares to the quality so far. I know VW critics abound, for good reason (and that is why I bought the extended warranty) but I have known quite a few VW'ers who have had good luck w/ their vehicles. Don't know what noir authentique is talking about with the "cargo area is useless" comment, but this is a compact with very Nice interior room for the passengers and I fit 9 full size cases of beer in the cargo area.
The excellent balance of power, comfort, looks, and utility. Nice standard features on the Base model.
Offer the Manual Tranny drivers some options such as the moonroof!!!
