  3. Question on Cecille - 2018 orange Tiguan SE - seat memory/hopeful

    Volkswagen Tiguan Forum
    Good morning! I've looked through the manual, and I'm HOPING I'm wrong, but I don't believe there is seat memory for the SE? If anyone can tell me differently, I'd be pretty happy! It's such a SILLY thing, but when my husband drives, he puts the seat back and sideways! I...
  4. 2018 Tiguan SE needs 2" trailer hitch installed

    Hey Everybody, I'm new to the forum and a happy owner of a new 2018 Tiguan SE w/3rd row. I'm in Boston, MA, USA. Anyone have advice on getting a 2 inch trailer hitch installed? The dealer tells me they can't do it. I'm wary of U-Haul as the ones I've seen don't have a clean look when...

    Hello out there! I am the owner of a wonderful 2007 Passat 2.0T Luxury. Can anyone tell me if the Electrical System is a Can Bus System? My Satellite Radio will not receive the signal from the satellite. Fault code says it is an antenna problem, but I don't want anyone to tear out my...
  6. New To The Forum

    Tiguan New To Forum / Frequently Asked Questions
    Just joined the site hoping to converse with other owners. In August we bought a black 2016 Tiguan S 4 Motion with 28k. The Wife drove it until this Monday! At 6' 3" it felt cramped for me and the black was a real pain to keep clean. On Saturday at a gas station a person parked next to us...

  8. 2012 2L diesel automatic - disappearing coolant issue

    Hi, my 2012 Tiguan (37k on clock) showed a coolant warning light last week. Only had a full service 4 weeks ago. Garage can’t find obvious external leak, so did pressure test. Nothing showed up. Changed DSG oil, in case it was there, (and this recommended at 40k anyway) but no coolant found in...
  9. New Tiguan Owner

    Tiguan New To Forum / Frequently Asked Questions
    Just bought a 2016 Tiguan S 4Motion with 26,000 miles. Very happy to have my first Tiguan. I have memories from youth of a friend who's family owned a 68 Beetle. I've just moved to the Northeast and thought AWD would be a good idea. I find the Tiguan to be very comfortable, with a nice ride and...
  10. Switched to premium gas in my 2018 Passat

    Passat Owners Club
    Even though my car calls for either 87 or 91 I ended up putting in premium these last 2 fill ups. On 87 the car just seemed sluggish with power like after a red light. I know I have 19 inch rims, but I was like where is the darn get up? I figured I'd put in premium and see if I saw a difference...

  13. Fan control module

    Golf MK4 / 1999-2002
    Hello, I’ve been having problems with my 2003 GOLF TDI A/C and I reluctantly started to throw money at the problem. I started with the FCM, and condenser fans and everything else pretty much under the hood. I’m starting to suspect the FCM. I did go amazon for the FCM ( 14 dollars ) and I’ve...
  14. Adios VW

    Volkswagen Tiguan Forum
    We purchased our first VW a while back. A used 2014 Tiguan. I've discovered the flipin' thing uses/burns oil. And naturally VW says unless the thing burns 1 Qt or more in 1,000 miles, its OK! No worries. Ours use oil, but naturally not that much. In the past 40 years I've had GMC...

    I took a chance and hard wired my dash cam into fuse #19. Later on got the print out from my dealer at an oil change. Turns out #19 was a good one to use. See attached:

    Golf MK4 / 1999-2002
    Just found and repaired the water leak issues on my 2003 golf tdi. I replaced the door seals and window seals (these were only part of the problem). Main problem that most people miss are the floor plugs. I checked mine while replacing the carpet underlay (totally soaked). The plugs were loose...

    Volkswagen Tiguan Photo Gallery
    Here's my 2010 Tiguan High Line. Been very happy with it so far. No issues other than tire, brake rotor and pad replacements. And the fact that my dealer cracked the grill mounts and the plastic panel over the rad and denied it. But that's Sault Ste. Marie, doesn't matter if...
