2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL 4Motion 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

Owned this Tiguan 3 months been back to dealer 6 times and after last visit car was there 2weeks for 1 part then find out they said there is a recall for sunroof lighting so they disconnnected feature which at that time I never received a recall. This is the first and last VW been 2 months and no cure for the lighting which we all paid for they knew about this problem but still sold them. Filled out a survey from VW and still have not heard from them after they ask if I wanted to be contacted from VW. They should buy them back with all the problems with this vehicle. BUYER BEWARE DONT BUY.

Review

I am totally sick to my stomach that a new car has to stay in the shop for over 5 weeks in 4 months. Every time my Tiguan went into the shop the dealer had to call VW who sent a vw engineer out to try and figure out the problem'S. BEWARE Tiguan owners...you are now a VW guinea-pig. The delayed acceleration of about 5-10 seconds will KILL you...DO NOT pull out unless you have allot of room. This is a major issue and VW knows about it. Some dealers even quit selling them until the problem is fixed !!! VW SHOULD HAVE NEVER PUT THIS VEHICLE OUT FOR SALE until ALL known issues were fix. (and they did know ) I was even told by VW...that All SUNROOFS LEAK !!!!!!! i CAN GO ON AND ON AND ON. I do know allot about the auto business being a 3rd generation GM dealer and my family in the auto business for 87 years......I sold the dealership in 1995.

Review

Buyer beware! Don't buy a Tiguan (or any Volkswagen) or you'll regret it. They don't care about their customers or making a quality product, and that warranty they hype so much is worthless if they won't actually fix serious safety issues.

The quick summary:
I leased a brand new 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan in May of 2018. In less than 4 months, the vehicle has exhibited numerous problems from minor to major (including some safety problems which make the vehicle risky to drive), and the manufacturer and dealer refuse to help despite several attempts on my part to resolve these issues with them directly.

A detailed description of the problems I have been facing, along with videos illustrating a couple of the issues, can be found at my website "bad tiguan . com" (remove the spaces)

Don't make the same mistake I did. Buy anything other than a Volkswagen.
