      They probably did a reset of all systems when they flashed the new software- that means the transmission has to re-learn your behaviour and I suspect fuel mileage should creep back to what you are...

      The reason I suggested starting with a clay bar is because polishing a surface with contaminants on it tends to work those contaminants into the paint and cause micro-scratches or holograms in the...

      Try a product like Meguiar's Ultimate Polish by hand- you may have to do the area a few times, and then follow up with Meguiar's Ultimate Car Wax. Using a clay bar first may be a good idea. A machine...

      The fuel tank sending unit failed in ours on delivery- from brand new it would never show above about 7/8 full and would never show below about 1/3 tank even when empty. VW likes to blame North...

      I have not had the recall done, and I can hear the fuel pump priming when the driver's door is opened. The vehicle has done this since new.

      Some dealers (not specifically VW dealers) carry products that get sprayed into the AC air intake and deodorize/treat the intake.

      True, though the availability of that type of "piggy back" device is much higher in Europe than in the North American market.

      Even if there are no visible signs the ECA has been removed or tampered with (as is the case if you replace all the shear bolts with brand new ones on re-installation), if you have a tune and the...

      Failing PCV is possible (get to it quick before your rear main seal fails due to crankcase pressurization). It could also be a water pump if it turns out to be unrelated to the CEL.

      It depends on trim level and accessories- our 2010 Highline (like an SEL) and 2012 Highline have identical center console lids and compartments, both with the MDI cable. Earlier models with the...

      The Tiguan has a fair degree of camber on the rear wheels from the factory by design, most likely for handling purposes. Have a look at a brand new one in your local showroom ;).

      Our 2012 with 19" Savannah alloys seems a bit laggy off the line compared to the 2010 we had that wore 18" Pasadena alloys.

      Larger diameter plus slightly heavier makes a slight difference.

      My 2010 Highline had them, and it was a relatively early production model. In terms of the mirrors, apart from the body color they were identical to what is on the 2012 I have now.

      I think you'll find a few different mirrors on the market, but they are more to do with trim levels and motorization (for the optional folding mirrors on SEL/R-Line/Highline models) rather than...
