I have done all of the recommended maintenance, regular oil changes, etc. However, this car started to fall apart. Should have listened to everyone who said VWs are pieces of $&*@. Not to mention the parts are expensive. Never buying a VW again.


Best car I’ve ever owned

Best car I’ve ever owned. I bought it used with 10k miles for $17.5k in 2018. I’ve drove for Lyft for 2 years and recently drove it from California to South Carolina. It’s has never broke down, had to replace the tires a few times but nothing but basic maintenance. I’m at 112k miles and going strong. One small accident the other 2 cars were totaled mine had minor damage on the front driver side. I love my VW.


What a piece of crap.

Worst purchase I ever made. Car has broken down twice leaving me stranded in traffic on freeway. VW service dept is terrible. Cannot seem to get it fixed properly.charged me over $4000 to fix it last time. It is still not right. All electrical systems in steering wheel are inoperable. Runs terrible. Airbag light will not turn off. Have to take it back tomorrow to fix what I already paid to fix once.



Blower Fan and resistor had to be replaced at 90000 miles, clock spring on recall backorder, cant deactivate TPMS warning light now, air bag light always on now, none of the steering wheel controls work. Can only reset maintenance required light by going to dealer now with computer to clear the code. Even for a oil change.


Very sporty - felt like a GTI only bigger

I bought this car new in Miami after my CR-V was totaled. I've owned at least one VW since 1974 and currently own a 2018 Beetle sedan and a 2019 Beetle Final Edition SEL convertible. I loved to drive the 2010 Tiguan SEL until I reached the 105,000 mile mark and the instrument panel failed and had to be replaced (which was not cheap). I got it fixed and my neighbor finally convinced me to sell it to him. I miss that vehicle and will test drive the new TAOS when it is available.


I found this car on this site

This car was the worst mistake ever and I should’ve listen to my gust but it’s a lesson learned I will never go threw another horrible experience buying a car I am a lot more educated now. I hope no one has to go threw what I did


Ford expedition

I have a car from carhop. And i had to have so many repairs done. I'm paying $320 for a ford escape yr 2005, and the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV i bought is going to be $60 more. I had planned on trade my ford in but it wasn't worth anything. I was so happy that I got approved to be get this nice car a 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan. So thankful



Love. Love. Love. Recommend. Very loyal to the VW brand. Typically driving Jettas, but recently graduated to the compact SUV and I have zero complaints.


No issues

The Tiguan has plenty of interior space. Instrumentation controls are laid out smartly with easy access. Very clean interior and well kept exterior. Quiet ride.


Equipped to suit all my needs

I am happy to say that I am very pleased with my purchase and the dealership as well. The certified vehicle had all I was looking for in a used vehicle and for the right price. I can't wait to take a road trip. Just loving it.
