      Yet again, VW sticks North America with a ****tier version of the vehicle the rest of the world gets... NA Passat looks terrible compared to the global one, and now this is nowhere as nice as the...

      When we had some engine sluggishness recently & check engine came on, it was diagnosed as carbon build-up. We took it to Fletcher Jones VW downtown, and I think it was $300-350 for that.

      I like the looks of the new Tiguan from this photo... please, VW, don't F&$( up the U.S. version like you did with the Passat.

      Got our Tiguan back on July 25th... just shy of 2 weeks in the shop. The last few days were simply waiting for the glass to come in (why they didn't order right away when we brought it in, I have no...

      Hail Damage

      My wife got caught in a severe hail storm driving home from work the other night while driving on the expressway, through south side of Chicago. Cracked the windshield in 5-6 different places and...

      If it were just her car, then maybe... but we share it (urban living = one car), and I'm also concerned with exposed bare metal and Chicago's road salt causing corrosion.
    12. Damage to rear Spoiler - repair or replace?

      That makes more sense. I can't see VW dropping current size Tiguan and then only adding a larger 3-row seating SUV and a tiny crossover. As it is, the Tiguan is smaller than the competition (CR-V,...
