Ive had no issues with my tiguan, after 16,000miles in one year and plenty of abuse such as hundreds of redline shifts in 1,2,3rd gear and taking it on quite a few deeply rutted mountain roads. It still has no issues, squeaks or rattles. Everything is like the day I bought it. full 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan review
 

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan

2015 Volkswagen Tiguan Gas Mileage: Neutral
YearComment
2014 The Tiguan's EPA ratings of 20 mpg city, 26 mpg highway place it near the bottom of the segment. The Escape with the 2.0T engine and all-wheel-drive does a bit better, 21/28. Neither can match the BMW's 22/33. But the BMW cheats by being barely tall enough to be considered a crossover at all--it's more a tall station wagon. The Tiguan and Escape are about five inches taller. In the real-world, the VW's trip computer reported higher numbers than the Ford's. In the suburbs I regularly observed averages in the mid-20s (vs. low 20s in the Ford). On a 70-mph highway I observed 25. In general crossovers struggle to match their EPA highway ratings at 70 mph, as the EPA test averages 48 mph. As speed increases, fuel economy suffers more in crossovers due to their height. full 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan review

Swapped the paper filter for a K&N filter, kept the original air box. Get over 24mpg city, close to 30 on the freeway w/ moderate hills. full 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan review

For a small crossover/suv its pretty good. Went on a 400 mile round trip to the mountains (5,500ft elevation) for the weekend and back (2,00ft elevation) and averaged 26mpg. Day to day driving I get about 25.5mpg without trying to be conservative. full 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan review

Our Tiguan ranges from 20-30 mpg, between city and highway cruising. It's consistently about 5 mpg thirstier than the GTI. Blame the extra weight, but there's less than 400 lbs of that, IIRC. Or blame the AWD, but it's part-time only. I blame the large aero cross-section; it stands about a foot taller than a Golf. If VW would offer a TDI in the Tiguan, they'd sell as many as they could spare to the US market. I'd be standing in line. full 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan review
