Great, except for the transmission
By jxenon on

Vehicle

2012 Volkswagen Tiguan SE 4dr SUV w/Sunroof, Navigation (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)

Review

This is a great car, however, the programming of the automatic transmission is horrible! To achieve high MPG, the transmission shifts to 6th gear around 35 or 40 mph! The result is very low RPM and engine noise. This happens in D mode. Going to S mode is not a solution since then, the shifting point is around 3000 RPM which is then too high. So hopefully VW of North America addresses this and does a reprogramming of the transmission.

Favorite Features

Built quality! Fun to drive except for the transmission problem mentioned above.

Suggested Improvements

VW of North America! Please provide a reprogramming of the automatic transmission! I love this car except for the horrible transmission!
