Very expensive.

During Cash for Clunkers Subarus had limited incentives compared to other vehicles normally selling at a higher price point and with more content.
20074dr Wagon 245-horsepower 3.0L H6

Very high resale values and popularity make the car very popular for resales. Unfortunately the vehicle has a higher sticker price. This is easily offset in the long run on reliability.
20074dr Sedan 245-horsepower 3.0L H6

$33,000 starting price. For what amounts to a nice station wagon.

Damn, it was expensive (one year old and cost $24K, original price something like $32.5K) but you get what you pay for I think.

VW Credit gave me incredible financing even though I had a foreclosure and a bankruptcy the previous year.

That speaks for itself. My wife saw an ad for the Mercedes CUV, at a better price. "We bought a VW for more than a Mercedes-Benz?" she asked sardonicaly. "Yes, but it doesn't have the VW's goodies." The Tiguan's frills quickly feel like necessities. You NEED the micro-adjustments and seat-cushion tilt of the power seats. My teen driver needs the backup camera. The sunroof is a marvel. And aren't those the best headlights ever, bending 15% so I can pretend to schase them around curves? On a dark road, the left-side high beam rises high as the left, spotlighting that roadside deer you wouldn't see with a fixed high beam. A base Tiguan, in the low $20Ks, probably makes more sense than a Golf. You get a better engine and more interior space, even wothout the options.

Without large discounts, this vehicle is pricey.
