With so many gadgets, I worry about the reliability....and VW does get dinged for reliability in CR.

Had a computer problem that took forever to get fixed; ALso spent a riduculous amount of time getting the trailer lights powered. Bottom line - although the tow limit is 7500 lbs, trying to power normal US trailers causes the computer to go haywire.

There are a lot of electronic do-dads, all very nice to have but the reliability of a great number of them is/hes been less than stellar, with the majority of touaregs having to return to the dealers numerous times during their first year.

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.

In three years had no service related problems.

I've had it in the shop 3 times for parts replacements in 2 years: rear brake rotors in first 6 months, then oil pressure relief valve necessitating replacing entire head gasket, then faulty fuel pump relay. All covered by warranty, and they comp'd my rental car, but I'm worried about what happens when it's not under warranty anymore!
