hi everyone, so i am a new member of your club, my name is gerry, im 72 years young and live in Canada, this is my first VW vehicle as i was a GM owner all my life and worked for a GM dealer after finishing school and up to my retirement. it was a hard decision to cut the GM ambilocal cord having been with GM all my life except for a brief moment of insanity when i purchased a 1968 mustang to fulfill a desire to go cruising in a classic vehicle with my one and only wonderfull wife Sheila.
i figure this VW TIGUAN UNITED might be the last new vehicle i may ever own, so i hope i made a wise decision. i am also looking for everyone's help with many questions that the owner's manual does not really explain. so be gentle with me as i bombard you with my questions LOL.
btw, this also my first experience at joining an online club and probably will make mistakes so bear with me.
looking forward to your expertise and help with VW's .
take care and stay safe
Gerry

hi there tricky, well it's a brand new 2021 tiguan united, picked it up a week ago, has 2 litre T, AWD, 8sp a/trans, powered sunroof, factory aluminum wheels, elec. and heated driver seat, infotainment ( i think is refereed to as MIB III ), safe driving features, elec. and heated mirrors. an unbelievable amount of leg room for rear passengers. color is pure white to resemble the snow storms we get in Canada with lower panels in black. powered liftgate. im still forgetting that the key is not to unlock the doors or to start the motor lol. we have always owned GM full size passenger cars until we tried SUV's, which turned out to be a big mistake until we came across this Tiguan, hope it will stay that way.

Good morning Gerry from this soon to be 72-year old guy too in the Montreal area. Garry is fine by me Gerry. Funny you should ask me why you are receiving the same e-mail twice. Just this morning I texted my brother-in-law Gerry in Oakville and he said he received my text 3 times!!! I don't have an answer for either unfortunately.

Cheers!

Are you seeing these triplicate email notifications while on your mobile phone? I keep getting notifications as well that you have responded to my post, lol. Trick there is to clear them from your phone.

If on the other hand you are getting these on your computer it may be time to ask our more tech admins to step up to the plate.

To be sure, these are emails to your email account or notifications through our forum which just very recently went to a whole new version. Maybe a glitch there?

Thanks for your patience. :)
