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.


We made an excellent choice!

The VW Tiguan is a 4 wheel drive that makes it so helpful during the Winter months. When folding down the back seats, anything can be transported! Bikes, furniture, etc.... It is a sized SUV for those of us who are more comfortable driving a car that is not large. It is a sharp looking car with a lot of power!! This is our 4th Volkswagen!!!


To me this is a luxury car.

Never owned a VW but this car is outstanding. I am totally satisfied. I consider the Tiguan to be the equal of Mercedes, BMW, Audi, etc.


2016 VW Tiguan

I picked up this gem about a month ago and it has been excellent so far. It is roomy and quick on the highway. I will say the turbo is quick to respond so it might feel a bit jerky at first until you get the throttle pressure figured out. Otherwise great vehicle and pretty economical (although you have to put high grade fuel in it (USA gas model)). I got the 2016 S Tiguan which didn't have the Apple Car Play available which kind of sucks but it connects via bluetooth easily so nothing really to complain about.
