Nice Car but Under Powered
By gregw01 on


2013 Volkswagen Tiguan SE 4Motion 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


I've had my 2013 Tiguan for 2 months now and the new car shine is wearing off.
The car is under powered and lacks any pep.
Conversely, to another reviewers comments about the weird shifting being improved.
It must have been really bad in the past because my Tiguan really shifts weird, especially on hills.
Tiguan suffers from an issue in the 4Motion control in that it cannot distinguish between a steep hill and unsafe driving conditions.
The car slows down dramatically taking away acceleration control up/down on steep hills.
Not a car for the mountains!

Best Features

Interior is very nice and polished. Really comfortable especially for a larger person.

Worst Features

Fix the drive train and reliability items. (Car dies for no reason)
