Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Volkswagen Tiguan estate?

Mechanically, the Tiguan shares many components with the Golf, which has a proven reliability record.

However, there have been issues with the automatic parking brake failing to release, particularly when on a slope. This can cause damage as the engine drags the car forward. Replacement parts can be expensive, so make sure the parking brake works correctly with no warning lights.
