What should I look for in a used Volkswagen Tiguan estate?
The Tiguan is a large car and, although its extremities are for the most part easily visible, and some models even have a reversing camera option, it will have been used in city centres and supermarket car parks so check for scuffs and dents on the bodywork. Also check the alloy wheels for any kerb damage.
The splendid news is that the Tiguan finished near the top in its class in our most recent reliability survey for cars from new to three years old. It achieved a score of 92%, with only 5% of owners reporting any faults at all. The only issue noted was non-engine electrical faults, all of which were fixed under warranty and in less than a week.
Volkswagen as a brand finished in 19th place out of 32 manufacturers in the same survey.
