Losing the love
By ray85158 on
2011 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL 4Motion SUV AWD w/Prem Nav, Dynaudio (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
When I first got my Tiguan, I really loved it.
However, that is beginning to wear off.
My biggest concern on buying a VW is slowly coming true.
All of these are intermittent issues so this is going to be fun with the dealer.
The back lighting on the right side of the gauge cluster is out sometimes.
The radio/nav has now frozen up about 10 different times.
The keyless system is flaky.
About one out of 10 start ups it says the key is out of range. About 50% of the time I cannot open the rear hatch with the key in my pocket.
Fun to drive.
Very peppy around town.
The highway mileage stinks.
I only get about 23-25 on the highway.
City is ok at 20-21.
For reference I have a 3/4 ton Sierra pickup with a duramax diesel and I get 25 on the highway.
Interior is a bit utilitarian.
Material quality is good, but I feel like I am in a 18K car and not a 36K car.
