Volkswagen Tiguan Reliability And Durability: Pros

2012 4dr SUV turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
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

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! full 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan review
