"A nice package but a bad joke as a machine. We took a 75% loss on resale on our 13 Tiguan with only 55k miles, it appears that the new car dealerships (vw included) auction nearly all used VW products. For good reasons; engine mechanical design problems related to the TSI engines include carbon buildup on intake manifold and intake valves, this little bit of maintenance is around $1500 and necessary every 60-90k miles. VW's powertrain warranty is for 60k and 3 years, I assume few; > 5% get this done under warranty. VW has distanced itself from these cars but still produces ones like them with questionable reliability updates. I'm done with VW, cost of ownership is unsustainable with their cars after 80,000 miles."
