Hi all,
I'm thinking of buying a 2nd hand 2008 tiguan. Was wondering if anyone has had any major issues with them, or if there's anything I should lookout for. There's about 90000ks on the clock.

Loved mine but did low mileage some can’t help on the higher mileage front. It’s the same 103kw engine used in Europe so check out with the guys there for longer running Tigs too.

Which engine and model? Mines a 2010 CBBB 4motion. i bought with 90000k miles last year, and apart from doing the timing belt and thermostat, its been a good car.

I have a 2008 CBAB on 130k miles, have owned it for over seven years.
Tbh I have had a multitude of fairly big issues that I have repaired myself and kept costs down. it is a lot wetter and I have salty roads around my way so that won’t have helped with some issues.

Off the top of my head.... new rear diff, Haldex unit refurb, collapsed prop shaft, changed rear calipers, broken springs, tailgate corrosion, crankshaft sensor (engine cut out when driving), EGR, ASV, aircon compressor pulley went & slashed the intercooler hose on the way, bad main earth. Things you can contribute to age but some of these were at 5 years old, so you take your chances with any car.

Engine wise they’re still pretty solid at that mileage.
