VW Tiguan's Rugged Ride A Pleasure to Drive

2013 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

We bought our VW Tiguan used and until we reached 70,000 miles, we had no problems. One day, the oil light buzzed and upon checking, we found the oil reservoir was empty. This issue has happened twice. The car uses oil and requires an additional quart between oil changes. This is a known problem with this make and model. Otherwise, it's a comfortable, compact SUV with moderate cargo space. It's warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It's particularly easy to drive in the snow with good tires. I love VW's stiff steering wheel and its rugged engineering.

Great car but costly upkeep.

2013 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

When I first bought the car, it was lovely. Then 10,000 miles in I had engine issues. It was a lease to the dealer took care of it. Since that time everything in this car has been pretty good. I am having some brake issues but was able to get that resolved going to a specialty auto shop that focuses on European/German vehicles. That is has been my biggest complaint thus far. Maintenance for this car is incredibly expensive, specially if you are having a problem.

Family helpful Bluetooth car.

2013 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

I have no major issues with my tiguan thankfully. The vehicle has low maintenance. The performance of this vehicle is better than expected for a SUV. The vehicle is very comfortable for a family especially those with car seats. The Bluetooth feature makes driving and streaming music easy. I use this feature every time I call so I am not using my cell phone.

It's not a big SUV, but not a tiny compact car, & fits 5 people comfortably.

2013 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

When going from intense heat to intense cold temperatures, it took a toll on my car. Randomly, the Car would run, and if I automatically start driving after I turned it on without letting it sit, it would shut off and the battery light would turn on. I would have to put the car in park, shut the car off completely, and then turn it back on.

Best features of my car for you.

2013 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

Love it. Only wish it had nav for the radio. It is very comfortable to ride in and had a ac vent in the glove box for cold stuff. It has a full panoramic sunroof. Only downfall about it is that when it's cold if you leave the ceiling open it will make the car colder.

The perfect compact - spacious, reliable and fuel efficient.
