Love the vehicle itself, maybe not loving Volkswagen in general

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

Within the first 9000 miles I started having an issue where something in the rear of the vehicle kept squeaking constantly, making me think there is a QA issue. There is a 7 year bumper to bumper warranty so I hope that will cover this issue. I've also already had to have a part replaced as part of a recall which was inconvenient. However, the vehicle handles very well, and I am getting 30 mpg fuel economy which is great for a compact SUV. The vehicle is big enough to have a small family in. When the back seats are flattened, there is a ton of room to haul furniture or whatever else needed to move, as much as my husband's truck.

2018 VW Tiguan- Surprisingly Spacious

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

The VW Tiguan is a great SUV. It doesn't seem to big on the outside but the interior is surprisingly roomy. It gets good gas mileage as well and is quiet, especially on a road trip. It handles nicely. I'm very happy with it and would recommend it for people that want an affordable, good looking SUV that doesn't look like a tank or a bubble like many SUVs out there

- Nicole N

The best SUV in the market!

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

This is my second Tiguan, I've had ZERO issues with this model. It drives well, it's comfortable, steering wheel is firm. I really wanted to get a Jeep. After test driving one then went back to my VW dealership, the new Tiguan style blew me away! I use the USB port to utilize Apple Play everytime I drive! I get about a little over 3000 miles to a full tank of gas!

Great car with great features at a good price

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

This is a great car. Lots of room, great features like connecting to the phone and stops automatically when the vehicle in front makes an abrupt stop. Also has lights that tell you it is safe to change lanes. It has a rearview camera from when you are on reverse. It also has great sound for music. It has 3 rows of seats so you can fit a lot of people.

- maria Q

All in one SUV that is family friendly.

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

Tiguan is comfortable for long distance or city trips. Has excellent cargo space and a lot of room for kids in the back. The sunroof makes the car feel more open. Gas mileage is average. The technology in the car is very user friendly. Easy to read and use. Apple carplay is a plus and makes phone connectivity very easy.

My Tiguan performance: a very economy SUV

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

Our family case is a Volkswagen Tiguan SE. We really love this case because of its great performance both in the city and in travels across the countryside. It is really an economy car. It requires only few gallons to travel long distances. And also is a very comfortable car for our family. I really recommend it.

- Rosario R

Perfect everyday car for all of your errands with maximum passenger capacity.

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

I really love this car. It looks sleek and very comfortable to be in. It is spacious and you don't feel cramped. The third row seating is also convenient for extra passengers. The third row seating folds down to allow for extra trunk space which is awesome. There isn't anything I would change about the car!

- Dana G

Fuel Efficient, Very Reliable

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

I love my car. It is reliable and fuel efficient. The only thing is the seats are a bit uncomfortable for long trips. It is a smooth ride and has enough room for your passengers and anything else you need to carry. I have been happy with my purchase. The entertainment system is Android Auto and is great.

- Kari M

My vehicle is a 4 door SUV, with a roomy back,

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

Its reliable and roomy, dogs fit in the back, able to take long trips with no problems. The only problem that I have found is that it doesn't have heated seats and it doesn't have a strong take off like other cars, the only other issue I have is that the seats are tan so they show everything.

- Vicki L

Amazing car. Will never drive anything but VW

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

Very dependable. Love the large display console for media. The sunroof is unbeatable. The multiple profiles for drivers makes it easy to set your preferences depending on who is driving the car. The different driving modes makes for getting around in the inclement weather so much easier.

- Alexandra K

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

My car is amazing and comfortable. It's luxury at a good price.

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

My Tiguan is great! Has all the features I want and love. My dogs got comfortable in the back, and I like the convenience of third row seating. I like the leather heated seats. The radio/console is very high-tech and I can use my phone for Apple CarPlay.

New 2018 Tiguan can fit 7 passengers.

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

I love my 2018 VW Tiguan. It's easily my favorite vehicle I've ever owned. My Tiguan is a seven passenger. It has plenty of cargo space and is a lot of fun to drive. The Tiguan was redesigned in 2018 and is now 10 inches longer than its predecessors

- Matt D

VW is an Awesome Buy And Value

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SE

No problems with the vehicle. Love VW. Very reliable car and well made. Quality vehicle. Excellent service when purchased the car and when I go into the service center for maintenance. This is my second VW. I look at VW first when looking for a new car.
