    Heya, I just joined this forum hoping to find out if my terrible MP3 is normal. I just bought a 2017 Tiguan with 11k miles on it. It looks & drives like a brand new car but after 3 fuel-ups I'm only getting 15.5 MPG. Now, I realize it's how you drive and I am coming from a Fiesta ST that I...

    I just bought a 2019 Tiguan SE 3 weeks ago. An hour ago, when I was driving home with cruise control at 60 mph, I just found an EPC warning light was ON.
