      Insurance didn't factor into it, though in Canada and my province specifically the Jeep comes in marginally more expensive to insure.

      Yes, an Unlimited. Not as refined a drive as the Tiguan, but apples vs. oranges in comparison.

      I had a lemon in the 1st Tiguan that I owned for 2 1/2 years, and after hearing from the owner of...

      Went back to a Jeep- a Wrangler specifically. Had an XJ (Cherokee) that gave me ten trouble free years with the only exception beyond regular maintenance items being a starter motor and battery in...

      Had a 2010 bought new- more problems with that one in 2 years than the 2012 also bought new over 3 1/2, but both cars had a lot of parts failures/issues and a lot of down time spent at the dealer...

      There is no "etched in stone" agreement I am aware of. I have had a loaner car 4 times in 6 years of Tiguan ownership (with too many visits to the dealer to fix things that needed fixing or perform...

      45,000 km. It started normally, I drove a half block and when trying to pull away from a stop sign started missing with the tachometer doing a dance. Revs cut out @ 2000 rpm, it made a loud sucking...

      Well, the straw that broke the camel's back arrived- Tiguan broke down, was towed to the nearest dealer (far from home) and was without a car for several days while the dealer played a game of...

      I understand the concept- these two cars have been more like a flat line than a curve :(

      I wished it wasn't- I was assured Tig #1 was the exception. The dealer stated it was a "Montagsauto" and that they never have any problems with these cars.

      While Tig #2 hasn't been as bad as the...

      I've had two of them- a 2010 and a 2012 both fully loaded Highlines (like the SEL in the US market) bought brand new. Both have had a multitude of issues, and the three dealers I've been to for...

      It sounds like a previous owner swapped out the cluster with a colour one as an owner-installed upgrade, and may have adjusted impulse values via Vagcom to adjust the speedometer and get things "in...

      APR is a well-supported tune popular on this forum.

      VW will flag your vehicle in the system if they detect a tune on the ECU, and can subsequently deny any warranty for failures they deem to be...
