The VW dealer has called me at least 4 times in these 2.5 months to check if everything is okay or not.

Proud VW Tiguan owner
Having test-driven the Big 3 Germans & the Swedish major multiple times, I’d narrowed it down to VW Tiguan. Did the pre-booking in Nov 2021 for the much-awaited petrol variant of Tiguan with VW Capital, New Delhi. Some delay on our end in finalising the colour (Black colour), some delay from the dealer and a lot of delay due to the Ukraine-Russia problem resulted in delivery dates getting pushed further & further.
Long story cut, I finally managed to get the delivery of my Tiggs (That’s what I call my baby) on 30th April (just before the price hike was announced).
The SA was a very nice guy and kept me updated on the progress. Around the end of March he informed me that hardly any black colour is coming and, sometime in mid-April, he gave me an alternate option with the Dolphin Grey colour (the owner was not in India). Finally, when I saw it in person, I started drooling over it!
Very smooth paper process and delivery (all within an hour) formalities completed and I must say, a proud owner of something I wanted since 2019.
- Looks… just wow!
- Luxurious interiors
- Predictable and practical functions
- Very spacious
- Power on tap
- Powerful AC
Not so good
- Sluggish pickup in Eco mode. Now I’ve started using the S mode to start and ease to Eco mode once a decent pickup has been achieved.
- Fuel guzzler! Switching from Skoda Yeti, this is indeed a fuel guzzler (I’m yet to achieve a double-digit figure in city driving).
- Though it’s a good feature, the front & rear sensors are very sensitive and LOUD!
Besides this, I’m not really missing the wireless Android Auto / Apple Car play / the wireless charger / 360-degree camera / ADAS features.
The dealer and VW team have called me at least 4 times in these 2.5 months to check if everything is ok. This gives me a feeling of being cared about.
Overall, I’m happy that I went ahead with my choice.
Here’s what BHPian R_R had to say about the matter:
Congratulations! It’s a very sweet ride.
Good to hear that the AC has been good because there have been some mixed reports on it. How do you find the ride, since that’s been a discussion point here too?
Also, did you take the extended warranty? Please do post some photos, when you have time. I am waiting to see what Hyundai offers in Tucson before I decide which way to jump.
