Lots of issues
By bkhal on


2009 Volkswagen Tiguan S 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


I leased the 2009 Tiguan and after doing that I will never buy another VW again.
Within the first 6 months one of the door handles came off in my hand.
I had it put back on but it would fall off every few months.
I also had severe leakage problems with my sunroof and had the interior ceiling reupholstered- twice.
This car has serious moisture problems and the windows are completely fogged up every day.
I need to keep a towel in my car to wipe down the window everytime I need to drive somewhere.
The mildew smell is awful and there is growing in the car.
I'm grossed out by the car & can't wait to get rid of it.
It's ashame b/c it's adorable and drives well- just has too many issues.

Best Features

Back seats slide front and back. Heated seats.

Worst Features

VW needs to fix the moisture issue. This is a health risk.
