Volkswagen supporter forever. I am on #3.

2013 Volkswagen Tiguan

Problems: none yet (knock-on-wood). I have owned 3 Volkswagens and I loved each of them. Sometimes the parts are more difficult to get and more expensive to have replaced. They are such good quality that it is rare you need to. However, some accidents are unavoidable. Performance: amazing! So much power for a vehicle with decent gas mileage. So easy and fun to drive. Reliability: coming from someone who has been in multiple accidents, I feel much safer in Volkswagens. It makes a huge difference when you are in a strong, well-built care. I rely on mine for safety. Comfort: wow. My Tiguan might have some upgrades (not sure of details) but I think it is very spacious for a small SUV! Plus, the back seats can convert into a bed/lay flat. Great for car camping. Features: like I said, mine might have some upgrades. I am not sure what comes standard. I have a huge moon roof unlike any cars I have been in. The stock sound systems are far above average and have great sound/base. Bluetooth and touch screen display. Controls on the steering wheel. And one more favorite: awesome stock rims. Nothing small of cheap looking. This car (and my other two Jetta's) came fully loaded!. In my opinion.

Its extremely responsive and reliable.

2013 Volkswagen Tiguan

No problems yet - bought it used with a two-year warranty that I haven't needed to use so far. Love the wine color and styling - perfect size for me. The Tiguan is very easy to drive with controls that are logical and intuitive. The driver's seat has multiple adjustment options, which is important to me. The center console is very handy and accessible. The moon roof is extremely user friendly with regard to options of operation. The backseat area is quite roomy and comfortable with a center console with cup holder and phone charger. The cargo area can accommodate multiple suitcases with ease and, when the backseat is folded down, can transport large items such as furniture, large pictures, plants, etc. Overall, I am extremely happy with my Tiguan and have recommended this vehicle to others.

Reasons to be in love with a Volkswagen Tiguan named Maurice.

2013 Volkswagen Tiguan

My Tiguan handles absolutely any type of terrain and always without any issues. I have driven miles upon miles and my Volkswagen has held up tremendously. It is a great sized vehicle and is perfect for transporting lots of stuff, or just friends. It is easy to drive with sensitive gas/brake pedals. The only issue I have had with my vehicle has been the tires. I had to replace all tires, but have had no issues with my car since. The gas mileage is also nice, but the car does better on the freeway than on surface streets. In addition to freeway driving, sport mode is an addition I didn't know I needed! I love my Volkswagen Tiguan.
