Final Impression:

This was my time ever driving a so I wasn’t too sure what to But you could say my initial impressions of the were not all that great.

When walking up to it for the first I noticed its size. The back end of the is a little bit shorter than say Escape. But when it comes to and interior styling, I think the is one of the better looking vehicles in its Next thing I noticed was I didn’t fit into the drivers very well. The steering did not come out far enough for me, so I could not the seat as far back as I would liked. If it offered a few more adjustment that would helped as well. Now I should that I’m a tall guy with legs and I’ve had this with vehicles that tall seating positions low floors, like the Honda Fit and

After pulling out our parking lot and above 25 MPH there was this annoying noise that did not go until after getting 25 MPH. It almost sounded a wind noise coming the vents in the dash, but I could pin-point it. If you’re going to drive a Tiguan for possible I would shut off everything to see if you the same noise. But it’s that something had happened to our vehicle. (I’ve sent an to the folks over at Volkswagen my issue. I’ll update when I hear back.)

Getting past the wind the more I drove the Tiguan the it grew on me. It has a nice suspension set up handles very well, on our crappy Michigan roads. I was surprised that it was not all that on the road for a vehicle with a wheelbase and tall roof. The of the engine won’t blow you but it’s more than I rode with my brother-in-law who that it has more pep than his Escape. Once comfortable the Tiguan I started to notice of its creature comforts. Like the panoramic tilt/slide sunroof an electronic shade and ample leg room.

Overall the Tiguan is a nice But it’s in a very competitive and with our tester coming in at $36,000, I don’t think see it stealing too many sales from its Big Time competitors.
