All wheel drive Volkswagen.

2011 Volkswagen Tiguan S

My 2011 Volkswagen tiguan is a great car. It is a 5 seater with all-wheel drive which is great for snowy and harsh weather conditions. If you enjoy listening to your own music, this car provides Bluetooth audio. It also has voice activation and am & FM radio. As a used 2011 model, my tiguan often needs repairs but that is not the case for all tiguans. There is also a panoramic sunroof which is a huge plus, especially in the summertime when it is warm and/ or sunny outside. The trunk has a sufficient amount of room to pack up with suitcases and such as well. One con is that the 2011 tiguan does not include a backup camera, which is not a problem for me but if you are used to a backup camera this might not be the car for you. Another con to the tiguan is that it only takes premium gas, which is a bit more expensive than regular gas, so if gas prices are a worry to you I would recommend going with a different car. However if it is not a worry this is a great first car or a great 5th car.

Reliable, safe small SUV great for anyone!

2011 Volkswagen Tiguan S 4Motion

Very reliable and safe car. Love the color and perfect size for buying an SUV for the first time. Very compact and small and not hard to see surroundings when driving. Not many problems other than regular maintenance. Can be pricey to fix/ get regular service. Required premium gas and high quality oil and fluids but well worth it. Good gas mileage and will get you far. I have traveled quite a bit in this vehicle and it is very reliable and pretty good on fuel. Overall I love my car! Comfortable interior that fits a good amount of people and plenty of trunk space! Would definitely recommend this vehicle to first time SUV buyers, first time drivers, or even someone who just wants a small SUV with good gas mileage. Perfect family car.

I love my 2011 Volkswagen!

2011 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

personally, I love my car. I like that it is an SUV/ crossover which makes it easy to get in and out, especially getting the kids in and out of their car seats. We have taken this car on many camping trips and there has been plenty of room in the trunk. We have recently been experiencing issues with the car and it seems to be one thing after another, which I hear is an issue with Volkswagen cars in general.
