The negative and positive aspects of the VW Tiguan.

I do not like the way the brake pedal will go all the way to the floor. But I like the fact that it is compact and comfortable. It has good cargo and passenger space for a compact SUV. It also has a smooth ride and a long list of standard and available technology features, good combination of space, and family-friendly features. Another negative point is that three adults cannot sit comfortably in the back because the seats are too small for adults. Also, its lone available engine has lethargic acceleration and subpar fuel economy. I just read that the VW redesigned the Tiguan for the 2018 model year. The new edition's engine puts out 16 fewer horsepower, but it feels more energetic and gets about 2 more mpg than the old engine. The old six-speed automatic transmission is swapped for an eight-speed automatic. While the previous-generation Tiguan sat just five, the 2018 model is larger and offers a third-row seat that ups seating capacity to seven. The new 2018 model has much more cargo space, a larger infotainment touch screen, and many more driver assistance features, including adaptive cruise control, a surround-view camera, pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.

Great for small family with few slight flaws.

None so far fairly new drives awesome. Delay in the computer with backup camera. Little extra storage room in trunk, gas mileage is great for city driving also. We are a small family of three and the vehicle is perfect for us now with more than one car seat it would be a little tight. We wish the car light were automatic we have left it on and completely killed the batteries which is connected to everything including door locking mechanisms.

Purchase of used Tiguan: love it despite issues.

The car is really comfortable. It has good Bluetooth connectivity, heated mirrors, and plenty of storage compartments. It is spacious and drives smoothly. It also features a rear-view camera which is super helpful. However, I did buy the car used and a day after buying the car the battery died. My tire pressure monitoring system is also broken. I am not sure if these are issues due to the previous owners care or typical for this car.
