Quote, originally posted by priggly » Am considering the purchase of a new Tiguan with the panoramic sunroof but am concerned about leakage/breakage problems with a sunroof this size.
Are these a significant concern or are such problems infrequent and not a reason to avoid this roof?
Also, can anyone make a comment as to whether a sunroof this size compromises the safety element of the car? Would the roof be more likely to crumple were the car to be involved in a rollover accident?
Thanks very much.
While I can't comment on sunroof problems, you should take a look at these posts and the IIHS video if you're at all concerned about the structural integrity of the Tiguan with the Panaromic Roof ...
and yes these are 2 different Tiguan crashes, both with drivers, and I think passenger(s) that for the most part "walked away" <-- paraphrased by me. You can read about their experiences in the posts.
