    My car

    Took delivery of new 2.0 TDI 140 Match on March 1st. Replacement for 2.0 TDI SE acquired new exactly 3 years previously. 36 months and 20K miles of hassle-free motoring consisting mix of city/local and occasional longer runs to Northern England and Wales. Didn't miss a beat during this period – only visits to garage were for routine servicing and one VW recall. In summary: Plus: Very comfortable and car-like to drive. Good on increasingly potholed city streets and in significant snow during last two winters. Very good use of interior space – particularly rear seats for our two tall teenagers. Relatively cheap to run and insure, good combined mpg returns. No rattles, breaks or trim loss. Appearance hasn't aged – unlike some competitors.

    Minus: 1st gear too short. Occasional 'whining' from engine bay/underfloor during very cold weather (Garage – "It's just the cold"….). Not a lot else.

    My car

    Third update on my Tiguan. Now done 40,000 miles, still on the original tyres although these need changing soon (had 3mm left at December service).

    The interior is still as new, no squeaks or rattles and the plastics seem impossible to mark, the bodywork (excepting stone chipping at the front) is also very good. Quality and reliability has been very VERY impressive, with no issues at all, as has the drive. Smooth, quiet and lots of punch from the engine, fantastic on the motorway. Overall economy (car is automatic) c 42mpg. Great in the snow too, even on multi-season tyres.

    Service cost for the second (36,000 mile) service was a bit high at £400, but dealership(s) have all been excellent and highly professional.

    The best recommendation I can make - when I come to change it later this year it is hard to look beyond having another Tiguan...and I've never had the same car twice in over 20 years.

    My car

    I have just bought this car. So far I have found it very easy and comfortable to drive. One of the main reasons we bought the car was its five star EuroNCAP safty status and it certainly feels safe when driving.

    The 2.0 140 bhp engine is not overly quick but is fast enough to get out quickly at junctions and for overtaking on the motorway.

    There is lots of room in the cabin and rear seats. However, the boot is not very big for a car of its size (but not that different from rival cars).

    The drive is slightly more firm that the SE (I took my test drive in an SE) due to the sports suspension. However, I feel that overall i am very pleased with my purchase and I already find myself looking forward to the next big journey.
