2010 Tiguan SE 2.0T (avg MPG 17) Same here! Turbo seemed to be failing, as well as some weird engine surging issue, and since the vehicle was still under warranty, I could not fix it myself, needless to say the dealer claimed the vehicle was operating "within specs", in other words, they did nothing, except charge VW for scheduled maintenance. I am sorry to say, and having owned many VW autos, I will not purchase or lease another VW vehicle, very expensive to repair, and repairs aplenty. If you don't mind spending your free time at the dealership waiting for your vehicle, and you don't mind visiting your local gas station often, then buy this vehicle, otherwise, check out a different auto manufacturer. I was so annoyed and disappointed with this vehicle, I wrote to VWoA and the dealership outlining the various repair and maintenance issues to see if we could come to some type of resolution, and to my amazement, the dealer offered to take the leased vehicle back at no cost to me, although I lost the down payment, but, that's okay, because I got a reliable, fuel efficient and maintanence free Vibe, at half the price. Best decision I've ever made. Drove the AWD Vibe from MI to MT and back, absolutely zero problems, averaged 32 MPG. If you're listening VW, take a lesson from some of the other car manufacturers, and provide the service that you claim you do, and treat your coustomers fairly. The dealership I used was pathetic and I always felt that I was being scammed. I am so glad I got rid of that piece of junk, and I only put 15000 miles on a brand new vehicle in two years... nothing but headaches with the Tiguan.Report it
