Great Volkswagen Car Review

I love my car! Being a college student, my car has been incredibly reliable. I have to travel from Michigan to Texas to get to my school, and my car does a great job. It has great gas mileage and rides very smoothly. I have not had any issues with it and am very thankful to have such a consistent car! It is a very cute style and color and my friends love it. We all fit into my car comfortably and enjoy taking trips in it. The car is amazing at cooling down in the summers and heating up in the winters. I love the heated seats during the Michigan winters!! Overall, I love my Volkswagen Tiguan, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a cute, comfortable, and reliable vehicle.

Greatest car I have ever owned.

The tiguan is very comfortable. It is easy to get in and out of. The front driver's seat moves forward and back and raises and lowers to fit the driver. The gas mileage is good, especially on highway drives. You do need to use the highest grade gas. Car has a turbo engine. It does have a blind spot when backing up.

VW Tiguan 2009 - amazing!!

This car is amazing! I bought it used close to 2 years ago and there has not been a problem once. I have taken it on long distance trips and it is extremely reliable. Got into one accident and the other car was totaled, but mine only had a dent. Therefore it is extremely safe. I absolutely love this car!
