Flawless: the Tiguan II. Its predecessor lies, however fully in the red. The axle suspensions are criticized up to seven times more often than on average, and spring breaks are also common. In return, the steering and steering joints, drive shafts and rust resistance are excellent.
the Tiguan shines reliably. That is in almost all categories VW-SUV below the average defect. Only at the third TÜV appointment can the blinkers of the Tiguan the first generation to be objected to.
