Very Professional and knowledgeable

I called the dealership and was transferred to Ron Askew, he was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, efficient, and professional. I would definitely refer customers to Mr. Askew.


Very reliable and fun to drive.

Very solid vehicle. Handles all weather conditions and always felt safe driving it. Lots of pep and has a large capacity to haul stuff. I would buy another one.


Really disappointed

All sorts of electrical issues. But also just learned I will soon need new struts, coil springs and sway bars - on a 2014 Tiguan with UNDER 46k miles! I didn't have to replace those big-ticket items on my 2006 Honda CRV until it was 12 years old and had nearly 200k miles. No way I should be facing this expensive a repair on a car with so few miles.


Fun, practical and reliable.

Great small family SUV. Trunk is a bit too small but otherwise perfect commuter and kid friendly vehicle. Engine is very reliable and low maintenance. Capable on snow and mud.


Love the interior of this car and how it drives

Love the interior. Leather touches on the inside and chrome touches on the exterior. Handles gear for a SUV. I owed one before and glad I bought another one.


Reliable car I call him baby tg for tiguan

Just perfect for all my drivings,especially long road trips..interior to exterior its perfect..sound is awesome love the panoramic roof I just love my baby TG that's his name..


VW Afficianado - I've owned 5 VWs

We owned a 2007 Passat Sportswagen with the 2.0 turbo, which we purchased used and absolutely loved. We traded that in on a 2012 Jetta TDI, which would get 45 mpg, but we returned it during the dieselgate scandal. We still own a 2012 Golf, which I gave to my daughter who turned 16 this year, which is when I bought my 2014 Tiguan. I also purchased a 2008 EOS, manual transmission a few months later, but it needs a lot of TLC. However, lets talk about the Tiguan. I originally was looking for another used VW station wagon, but couldn't one at the right price and location. I was also looking at a 2010 Toureg, which sold 20 minutes before I got to the dealership to look at it. So, the 2014 Tiguan was a 3rd choice and also at a VW dealership close by, where I have my other VWs serviced. I've been able to stuff a lot of things in the back of my Tiguan. After folding down the rear seats, you can put 20 bags of mulch in the back. By folding down the front passenger seat, flat, I've also been able to bring home a palm tree. So, it's far exceeded my expectations for cargo carrying capacity. The Good: Great acceleration as you would expect from a turbo. Very comfortable and stylish interior. Bluetooth connectivity for playing from my phone's playlist on long trips. It's a good looking vehicle. The Bad: It does not get 26 mpg unless you are doing 60 mph - realistically expect 24 mpg when doing 70+ on the highway. Limited towing capacity @ 2200 due to the limited torque (207 foot/lb) You're only going to fit 4 adults in the car - realistically Now, for comparison, my 2012 Golf (now the teenager's car) gets 32 mpg consistently with the ancient 2.5 five cylinder engine. It's now pushing 120K on the odometer. My 2008 EOS, which I purchases a few months after the Tiguan, has the same 2.0 Turbo and gets 30+ mpg with the manual 6 speed trans. Similarly, our old 2007 Passat with the 2.0 turbo would get 30 mpg on the highway for a mid-size wagon. So, for the Tiguan it has to be the gearing in either the transmission or the differential. Overall I am fairly happy with this vehicle after owning it for almost 10 months.


Fun, versatile small SUV

My Tiguan has been a tremendous vehicle for me and my family- fun to drive, comfortable, good in snow and able to haul kids or stuff or for commuting. Small and agile enough to be great in the city at rush hour, but also comfortable for long trips.


Stylish & Sporty SUV

This car is perfect for me! I recently upgraded from a 2003 Toyota Corolla, so this new car has everything and more that I could have asked for. There is plenty of legroom, the seats are comfortable, the system interface is helpful, and the interior/exterior is beautiful. Great quality and has all the "bells & whistles" for a new college grad.


Fun and practical car that looks great

I just bought this car a week ago. It is an R line which has the best features, and I am very pleased with the amenities. It drives very smooth and the turbo is great. It also has a panoramic sunroof which I love. I also appreciate that it opens much larger than other cars I test drove with similar panoramic windows. I would definitely recommend this car to anyone looking for a fun car that is also practical.
