Advantages:

Diesel, low consumption, low tax, great dynamics, high reliability, good off-road performance.

Expensive spare parts. For example, the high beam bulb at the officers cost 10,000. It is probably even more expensive now.

Comment:

Absolutely great car in the Track and Field package with the 2 liter diesel. Has driven 140,000 km in 7 years and no major issues.

Is all the negative associated with the competition. my mileage 50000km, in addition to working in the service, a lot of cars comes through us, in general, there are certain subtleties in almost all brands, the question is what you want from a car, you should always sacrifice something when choosing a / m either dynamics, or consumption, or passability. in this car I had all coincided to the maximum. During operation, all is OK, just often come across at work, that people absolutely do not know how to drive an automatic transmission and robot and variator. sometimes destroying very hard to kill things, do not want to do the recommended service work. By the way, I know the information about the plant in Kaluga from primary sources. All the WAG products are well run and repaired and diagnosed, compared with the Koreans and modern Japanese and Mercedes and Bmw who have more hassle, worth their money!

There are a lot of people write about the rigid suspension, this is you have not yet rolled on the rab4-that’s where the dull suspension! Swapped the rab on the tiga and very very pleased! Another dimension! Rav with a variator did not go, only howled, and the legendary reliability of Toyota that has not justified itself: replacing the valvematic at 75 thousand kilometers weighed my wallet for 80,000 rubles. Noise was absent as a class.

Opened the Volkswagen Tiguan reviews page and am extremely surprised – so much negativity. I have been with Tiguan for 9 years and only positive emotions, and with each new model there are more. Something is not written here. Okay my personal opinion, but I communicate (quite actively) and with other owners of this model – all sorts of little things happen, but in general all satisfied with the car.

Advantages:

Stylish car , diesel 2.0. mileage 1350 km , according to the computer the consumption on the highway with traffic and driving in the cities of Russia 5.6 l.

The stupid and small trunk, that does not correspond to the declared by the manufacturer volume, the HIGH on the highway can play a cruel joke on the overtaking, before you overtake.

Comment:

The DSG is tuned to save fuel, you have to be extremely careful and cautious when overtaking on the highway.When overtaking on kickdown,DSG shifts down two notches from 6th gear and in 2 seconds is 6th gear again. There is no acceleration, time and speed with respect to the overtaking stops, but inexorably approaches the oncoming car, which without reducing speed rushes head-on. All this is not sucked out of my hand, all this happened to me in Tiguan 2.0.0 diesel, where a very decent torque of 340 Nm, which gave me a lot of confidence on the highway. But no,the DSG box sowed my fears that next time I won’t be able to overtake a car on the side of the road so close to it.Now try it ten times and overtake once.Such a catch has never been in Citroen C4 sedan and Kia Optima with engines of the same power and less torque, but with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Advantages:

I own it and enjoy it. Very low consumption, up to 100 km per hour I easily get out of 6 liters per 100 km. In the evening of May 9 I drove along the Mkad, and I got 5.5 liters per 100 km. I am driving along the Moscow Voronezh toll road, 135km/h I eat 7,5. Cabin beautiful, the climate song.

Comment:

Bought in August ’17, need a car to drive to Moscow, do not choose from anything. I read ZR article Battle is not equal. Dealer gave a discount of 150 thousand for the 1984 Six. I was not even shown, the condition was that someone had to buy it back. Estimated in 10 thousand, a friend bought it out for 15 thousand. So, the Tiguan, 1,4, 150 hp, highline configuration, was worth 1813 thousand, the final price was 1590 thousand. At once I drove it to the capital, on a cruise at 90 kilometers per hour and to Moscow. It was dreary, but I got there and was going 100km per hour on the way back, so I was running around. Now the mileage is about 14 thousand. All works, the oil is normal and thank goodness. It rides like 180 horsepower. Yes, I forgot, I took front-wheel drive. I can’t get on the ground except on the roadside. Not a car, it’s great. Later I began to look at similar classmates Honda, Mazda, Kia. On the highway they are dead, I do not regret one bit. I don’t see the need for valet parking, I’ve never used it, but it brakes by itself! Really bailed out, even on the highway at speeds over 130 front lane changes abruptly. Tiguan so great brakes, it was unexpected. I recommend it.

Bought for my wife, so between other models especially did not choose. She liked the look of it, and you know how hard to change my wife’s mind. I did not try, for me it’s also quite normal. Not huge, easy to park, you sit high, visibility is excellent. I really wanted to get a diesel, but she flatly refused. As it will stink of diesel, won’t start in winter, rattle and so on. Nerves were not wasted, we bought a gasoline. For 6 years except for the usual service at the dealer’s nothing more had to do with the car. So I can safely recommend.

Was choosing between the gasoline version and the diesel version. Ended up taking the Tiguan with the diesel. Bribed by the fact that the price was the same as the gasoline version, although other companies usually have such versions much more expensive. At first, of course, I was a little worried, having heard horror stories about how dies diesels on our fuel, but for all time there were no problems with the engine. In winter it starts without any problems, the interior is heated up quickly (there is an additional heater). I fill up only at the branded filling stations. The separate song is the fuel consumption. I did not expect that in the crossover in the city you can get down to 10-11 l/100 km, and on the highway in 7,5-8,0. The only drawback is the fact that on the road it is a bit stiff, though it steers great. As a result, his choice is not regretted. It is an excellent car.

Before the Tiguan was a Mazda-3, satisfied with everything, but tortured all the time to draw the belly even on small irregularities. It was very low. I decided to change it for a crossover. I chose between it and Toyota Rav4, Nissan X-Trail, Mitsubishi Outlander, Subaru Forester and Suzuki Grand Vitara. As a result, after test drives I settled on the diesel Tiguan in Track&Field version with automatic, bi-xenon headlights, rain sensor, automatically folding mirrors and Offroad package with beveled front bumper. I liked the visibility, excellent suspension, good roadholding and feel confident at 140 km/h. Didn’t like that the trunk is really small, but the back row folds down to a flat floor, plus you can fold down the front seat (a table top from Ikea, no problem). A little later bought a roof box and stopped getting upset about it.

I bought it new at the dealer. For a long time I had to choose among the classmates. But the test drive discarded all doubts. I liked Tiguan for its compact size, well-thought-out ergonomics and excellent dynamics, although the engine on it was only 1.4 liters TSI. We drove it with my wife for the first 30 000 km and could not rejoice, and then it began to crumble. It just …detsya some: firstly the piston burned out, so I had to change the entire piston, then I had to replace the throttle (the engine did not revolve above 3000 rpm), then the steering knuckle, the left front strut. At first I thought I was just unlucky, but on the club forums I found a bunch of people with similar problems and with this particular motor. Good thing all the repairs were done under warranty, but the car was more in the service than driven. And I don’t need such a praised German car industry. In general, not even two years after driving it (I repeat, I bought the car new), I had to sell this miracle of engineering thought. If you want to buy Tiguan, do not dare to take it with this motor.

Tiguan, Sport & Style 2.0 TSI 200 hp, 6-speed automatic. I needed a modern crossover with all-wheel drive, ground clearance of at least 200 mm, power reserve to easily overtake on the highway (often have to go long distances at work), modern level of equipment and safety systems. Small size and a modest trunk did not embarrass me, as I mostly drive alone, a maximum of two. I bought it by chance from an acquaintance who had gone on a long business trip to Austria. Car at the time was only a year and mileage of 12,700 km. I have it for almost nine and I have covered almost 74,000 km. During all this time nothing has broken, and it hasn’t even needed to add oil, although many “experts” were scaring me about it. But soon, I feel the need to repair the suspension, something was unpleasantly buzzing in the back because of our roads. I hope to get rid of the stabilizer bars. Otherwise the Tiguan is a joy to drive, not going to sell.

Cool city crossover. Moderately large, moderately compact. Haven’t changed a thing in 4 years! Even the wiper blades, and all the bulbs are native. Clean sills – a serious +.

Yes, it is a bit stiff. With aggressive driving in the city 11 liters – diesel 2.0. On the highway in 140-180km – 8,5 liters.

2L 200 horsepower, bought in February 2012, Restyled. On Test drive I liked it more than the competition, I gave 1.4 million rubles and happy to go home. Immediately upsetting consumption 16 liters per 100 kilometers Also, the consumption of oil to 20,000 miles was about a liter per 1000 kilometers. At 30.000 km ran broke down the chassis, the pump leaked, there was a hum in the box (not dsg).In 14-m year just barely sold for 1.060.000 rubles and made the cross. I will not buy another VW.

Advantages:

The Tiguan impressed me with the comfort and thoughtfulness of the cabin, spacious seats both front and rear, great cabin transformation, great handling, good noise isolation. Quality of finish materials is inimitable (after Volga and Hyundai).Low fuel consumption.

Short gears. Due to the small volume of the engine, has repeatedly stalled when starting off (not enough power to start up at speeds close to idle, the blower does not have time).The engine is very delicate, with little margin of safety, not passable in our conditions. Suspension is unbearable, breaks down by 40 thousand even with careful driving. Cabin warms up very badly, hoarfrost on windshield when t is below 10 gr., trunk button often freezes in the beginning of spring (transitions t through 0). Electrics often glitchy.

Comment:

Tiguan 1.4 liter, all-wheel drive, manual. The first fly in the ointment appeared in half a year, when run about 5-6 thousand: in summer, suddenly there was an episode of double-start (started, but immediately stalled), sometimes the car jerked during heavy acceleration. In winter, closer to a year, mileage 10 thousand, I began to notice: an unusual murmur of the engine immediately after startup which was gone in a few seconds; there appeared squeak-squeak when vigorous pressing the gas pedal. In the Internet, on forums I found information about my doubts. I began to wonder what I had bought. At the first service station reported my observations. As a result, I had a warranty repair: changed the phase shifter and the pump (so I was told). I was very upset – after 12 thousand in the car the engine was repaired. The courteous manager in the showroom, advised me to sell the car, change it to 2 liters. Had no money to replace it. Decided to drive more. After learning about the weak engine, I was very careful with the choice of gas stations. Always one, only Lukoil, only 95 (90% of mileage was in the city). In March, the trunk door button froze (became oaky, can’t press, can’t open the door from the outside) (this has been repeated every spring, I couldn’t fix it). Soon stopped burning the light in the trunk (although when you open the door sometimes flashed, it seems stuck contacts). In winter, just below – 10 degrees, frost covered the windows, not only outside, but what is more painful – inside. The cabin does not warm up at idle, only in motion and for at least 10 minutes. How to drive if the glass is in the frost from the inside (you can clean it off the outside), if you don’t drive, you won’t get warm air. What I did not do (antiinternet, cooling the cabin before closing), the freezing of the windows I could not overcome (street parking). Thought about installing regular electric heater (it appeared on next year’s cars), but they do not install it on my year’s car. By 40k electronics began to malfunction: there was a check of external illumination failure, parking lights turned off and then lighted up again, self-winking turn signals – lever on the right turn signals, but left turn signals light up first, and then the right ones. Almost all mileage in the city, rarely on the highway, in the woods and off-road never left. To the dacha from the asphalt 0.5 km of smooth dirt. At 36k cracks appeared in rear arm supports, front right shock absorber leaked. At 50k all front suspension master-blocks, wishbone, front strut bearings, front shock absorbers, rear hub bearings, rear suspension wishbone (wishbone replacement along with arms), rear brake pads, rear socket guides. In short, by 50k the suspension had to be thoroughly shaken out. Even before suspension repair I began to notice that the car when driving in a straight line, especially shaking, begins to drift to the left, along with an independent turn of the steering wheel. Alignment of camber after the repair of suspension did not eliminate this bug. All service maintenance is done by authorized service stations only. At the age of 50 ths. the check engine lighted up. The officers have sentenced it to overhaul: cracked piston of the third cylinder and clogged valve of choke. Changed piston group, choke, flushed everything. Changed the timing chain. The mechanic has told me that these engines can only be fed with 98 petrol but where to get it. In the dry residue at mileage of 50 thousand: spent 50 thousand rubles on suspension (for unofficials non-original spare parts); 100 thousand for the engine (the official); stopped working climate-control (does not cool).

The engine parts were warranted for 2 years. After the overhaul the engine showed signs of its demise. As well as in the first time, the injectivity decreased, the farting sound in the exhaust system appeared during intensive acceleration (naturally heard from the cabin), when the tachometer arrow begins to cross 2-2.5 thousand (with further increase in revolutions the sound disappears), at startup the check engine lit up once and then disappeared. I realized that I couldn’t wait any longer and got rid of the Tiguan.

Volkswagen Tiguan 2021-2022 owner reviews

Volkswagen Tiguan 2

The pros and cons of the Volkswagen Tiguan 2021-2022 new body are revealed based on reviews from real owners. More detailed pros and cons of the Volkswagen Tiguan 1.4 (150 and 125 hp) and 2.0 with manual and DSG robot, as well as the 2.0 diesel with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive 4×4 can be found in the stories below.

Owners’ reviews

In a 1.5 million car, the 5 door opener button froze up completely (this at -2 degrees), and condensation formed in the taillights. At the same time sweating of both lights is not a warranty case (for the removal-installation of the lights and drying them on the battery within 5 hours, the officers charged 1,800 rubles). Such German quality…

Gasoline consumption of a new Tiguan (automatic, 2.0 liter) in winter, with a vegetable drive, below 16.5l/100km did not go down. And this after a competent running-in (no more than 2 000 rpm during 1,500 km).

I liked: drivability, comfort, dynamics, noise.

Did not like: the fuel consumption, the lack of USB-entry on the car stereo.

Video review

They write about the steering wheel, usb, etc. – it’s all nonsense. The main drawback of the new Volkswagen Tiguan 2 is the fuel consumption of 15-16 liters … If you do not mind it, I kindly envy.

Otherwise, the ideal crossover for the city. Optimal value for money. After six months of intensive use I have no questions.

Sergey Krel, drives a 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0 (180 hp) AWD DSG.

Driving a new VW Tiguan 2 since March 2016. Configuration – CLUB. First checkup was at 11 km, i.e. before 15 thousand. By the way, all dealers VW on Sundays action – 20% discount on TO. Before our service – we filled our tanks with 95, some whistling appeared for a few seconds, then disappeared, RPM dropped to 0,8 for a couple of minutes. Passed the service – everything is OK, changed the oil, filters.

Asked about the whistle, no one had any clear answer. We live in the Crimea, 98 petrol is delivered to us since September. We have switched to it. And, ho-hum. The whistling has disappeared and the engine speeds drop for 10-15 seconds after starting the engine. The car is frisky, the turbine turns on when the driver needs, that is, when overtaking in low gear and is very helpful.

The noise insulation is good. When we bought it the oil consumption was feared but nothing like that. Consumption was virtually nonexistent. In general, comfortable, decent, crossover)).

Consumption on the highway – 5.4-6.0, the city – 8-10, up to 11 – if traffic jams. Has a good function – Autohold – holds the car on downhill and uphill, like a handbrake, when you need to move off, you press the gas pedal and there is no rolling back at all.

It accelerates well and sharply, holds the track steadily. The speed of 120-130 km/h is not felt. I don’t like the interior trim. Better fabric would be desirable.

Irina, review of the Volkswagen Tiguan 1.4 (125 hp) mechanics 2019

Very comfortable car, dynamic and economical, stylish and modern. A daily drive turns into a pleasure for the whole family. In 30 years of driving I have changed 10 cars – Tiguan did not disappoint. Of the shortcomings I’ll note only that the material paneling of the seats could be better.

Marina drives a 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 1.4 (150 hp) AWD DSG

The car was purchased in the spring of 2017. I had three main requirements: diesel, webasto and off road bumper. That’s what I bought – the Comfortline package + six option packages.

I often go to the countryside (fishing, mushrooms), so I decided to change the BMW sedan for something higher. Replacement in principle satisfied, but, as they say, there are nuances. After purchase I wrapped film all the front of the car (I drive fast and sometimes far, and the headlights and paint gets muddy in a couple of years). Installed the grid in the bumper – too defenseless look radiators)).

LED swivel headlights, especially at night and in the rain – it’s cool! I also liked the LED strips in the doors and sills, cozy.

Don’t like the fabric upholstery on the doors – gets dirty quickly. Under a windshield washer tank they have placed some electric connectors for some reason – you miss them a little bit and the liquid gets on them. The rear-view mirror shakes and vibrates on some modes. Near beam – well, very near beam.

Review of the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0 diesel (150 hp) with robot and all-wheel drive.

The car by design is purely masculine, austere, as my friend says: “not too poncey and not too simple, spectacular – that is the golden mean.” I completely agree with him.

I am 99% satisfied with the car. What confused me initially – a little rigid suspension. In my configuration has 18 wheels, 17 is decently softer, but I do not want to change the wheels. I like how they look. About gasoline consumption – yesterday from work to home 9.8 liters. Today back 12 liters, collected all the traffic lights.

Aerodynamics is also at a level. Side windows only get dirty by birds, and on the hood cats walk around and leave their paw prints. VW has not provided this))
