TÜV report: which VW can you buy used?

Not all used VWs are good!

In the TÜV balance sheet, the models from VW perform differently. Which Volkswagen are worthwhile as used cars? Polo, Golf, Tiguan and Co in the check!

D.he Krone is going to Wolfsburg again: it has almost eleven million vehicles Volkswagen-Group sold around the globe in 2020, making it the absolute leader in the industry. The largest automobile manufacturer in the world unites twelve different brands under its roof, but the Wolfsburg-based company is VW. What about the long-term durability of these vehicles? Are the Polo, Golf, Tiguan and Co. worthwhile as used cars?

Unlike the subsidiary brand Audi, where all vehicles perform above average in the TÜV, it looks at VW different. Many of the cars tested are solid, but some have significant weaknesses.

VW Caddy and Sharan are worried about the TÜV

VW Sharan 2.0 TDI BMT

The family friend is weak: The TÜV inspectors are often not satisfied with the VW Sharan.

VW Caddy and VW Sharan did not do so well. Both models are popular family companions and offer a lot of space, but also many defects with the TÜV. Fragile suspension and damping can become a costly problem. In the Sharan, for example, there are defects in the axle suspension across all age groups. The suspension and broken springs are known weak spots in the van. Also at caddy the chassis is not convincing. In addition, there are problems with the brake discs at an early stage, which also affect all vintages. The brake discs are a flaw with some VWVehicles is known. Even with the Sharan or the smaller Touran, the examiners notice this often and early on. The endurance runner Passat also has an above-average number of defects in the brake discs.

Because it is big and heavy, you could actually expect a mixed TÜV balance sheet for the VW Touareg. But that The largest SUV from Wolfsburg is doing very well – there are no complaints about the steering linkage or drive shafts, which is excellent for a vehicle that weighs well over two tons. On the other hand, the loss of oil, which can occur early, is less attractive. From the sixth year on, things can spill a lot. But what about the durability of the bestseller Golf and its little brother, the Polo? Like this and more VW-Models have cut off in the TÜV report, AUTO BILD shows in the gallery!
