Hi all

Welcome to myTiguan.com, the community web site for owners and enthusiasts of the Tiguan from Volkswagen. Say hello here, let us know if you've got a Tiguan, or have one on order, or just like the look of them.

Please remember to provide some details about your vehicle (year and model are a good start) as it helps the members answer your questions. Your location is useful too - who knows? Help may be just round the corner...

'Additional information' about your car near the bottom in the signature area will also help. It only takes about 30 seconds to do - and it's nice to show off the spec of your pride and joy!

Adding a Signature:
What you have to do is scroll up to where your username is and click on the down arrow. There will be a slight pause and then you will see a new screen showing your profile. Now, up in the top right-hand corner you will see a button "Edit My Profile", click on that.

Another screen appears and on the left you will see "Change Signature". Click on that. Now you can fill in the info you want to show under "Edit Profile" and click on save changes. You can always go back in anytime to revise if it's not how you would like it to appear.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • If you haven't, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they may have been asked before. Remember, 'Search' is your friend.
  • Please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response and only once. Be patient and a knowledgeable member or guest will address your question.
  • New members and guests should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last.

See the myTiguan world map here.

If you want to post pictures on the forum many members use Photobucket. Some information about how to use it is posted here.

Don't forget that new members will have their first posts approved by a moderator before the become visible online. Please be patient and allow up to 24 hours for yours to become visible...multiple posts will not speed up the process.

Hello all,

We're new to the forum (my wife and I!). We're UK based in Oxfordshire.

We are looking to buy a VW Tiguan.

The Tiguan is going to be for my wife as her daily driver (GP) so she needs something modern, reliable, good on fuel economy, large enough for a family (future plans!), tall enough that her parents (ageing!) can get in and out easily and will cope with the Snow and Ice for when she's on visits to patients.

After having her current car for the last 8 years from new, this has to right from the get go as we'll be keeping it for a while.

The spec that we've settled on (more her choice obviously) is 170bhp TDI, 4 Motion, Climate and Cruise Control, no more than 10,000 miles from new, not an Escape due to the look of the bumpers, parking sensors, Front Fog Lights (even though they're not fitted on the Match) and Cherry Red or Acapulco Blue. Other than that, anything goes!

We've already test driven a very clean Cherry Red 2011 'Match' which had everything apart from Cruise Control and was sensibly priced but from what we've been told by the salesman, a dealer fit cruise control is not an option.

Today we travelled over 140 miles to Colchester VW to view another 2011 'Match', this time in Acapulco Blue which had been listed as having Cruise Control and Climate Control. I phoned the salesman to confirm that it had both of these extras which he confirmed. Excellent.

Just to put you in the picture, my wife actually spoke to the bank and her insurance company so we could have walked away today with her 'new' car. Obviously from the way I'm writing this... we didn't!

Imagine our dismay when one of the first things that was very obvious was that it does not have Cruise Control! Even the sales board inside the car listed it as having Cruise.

I had already starting inspecting the car (used to work for Porsche/VW/Audi as a Technician) and had already noticed that the front bumper has many stone chips and also looks to have been painted once as the OSF of it doesn't match the OSF wing perfectly in colour. There is also a little too much paint on the corners of the bumper for my liking... a bit of a give away.

We walked away very despondently as we had another 2 1/2 hour journey home.

We very much like the Tiguan but we're struggling to find the perfect spec to meet our demands.

I noticed while reading earlier that the R-Line doesn't come in Acapulco Blue or Cherry Red. While I can understand it with the Blue (I prefer the Biscay Blue), I see this as missing out hugely on the Cherry Red.

Great Forum, loads of great info (as we've both been reading plenty of it) and the hunt continues.

to the forum Syncro and thanks for joining. Why not also help populate the Tiggy World Map; link http://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=338335&x=-70.3125&y=-1.4061&z=15. For the time being you can put in the description you are looking to buy a Tig. Once you have one you can update with all the info. including a pic and/or video!!!

Here are a few links I found for you concerning retro-fit cruise control (CC) by using the search function located in the top right-hand corner. Selecting a forum search I input 'cruise control'.

Hi synchro I got my R line in November after watching the VW uk website for months, waiting for the spec I was after.when I found one I just went into the local dealership showed it to them on the website and within 3 days they had it so I could give it the onceover and test drive.
if they want a sale or the commission they will get it for you, well they did for me and I'm well chuffed with what I got.

Although they haven't popped in to say "Hello" yet, I noticed LaLevrie and AI65 joined us today.

to the forum and thanks for joining myTiguan. Why not also help populate the Tiggy World Map. Here is a link to it: http://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=338335&x=-70.3125&y=-1.4061&z=15 . To add a marker just click on the "Additions" tab and select either 'Add Marker - Simple' or 'Add Marker - Detailed'. FYI: You can also zoom in/out using the slide bar or the mouse wheel.

Given that this is an international forum it would be a good idea, if I may suggest, putting where you are from and a brief description of your Tig in your signature when you first post. This way people will be able to see what you have and then reply with quick and accurate responses to any future questions you may have. Give a look at other members' signatures to get an idea of what people have.

Other tips and info have been included above in post #1 by CovRob. Take a minute to have a look which may save you time in the long run. For example: instructions to add a signature are included there.

Cheers

welcome a good luck in your search. Not sure that the dealer was accurate about not being able to fit Crusie Control for you on a 2011 spec Tiggy. One of our members (Brian from Dunfermiline) has recently had his fitted after quite a long wait for the bits to be available from VW. So you could still check that out.

welcome aboard!


Hope you enjoy the exchange of info and general good hunoured banter on here. As for your comment "Im more excited about the tiguan than my wife" I think that goes for all of us men on here, the Tig's much more excitng than our wives". Methinks a "skating on thin ice" parcel will arrive from my old fart friend Warrior for that one!

Well, you would get one FB but I don't have enough upload quota left, so now I've got to learn how to reduce it for future use.
