Notes: VW gave the Tiguan a facelift with new headlights, a fancier grille, and improved performance. Unfortunately they didn't address what gave most 2010 owners headaches --- engine problems.

I bought a new 2011 Tiguan SE and it stalls out at around 5 mph. This is very dangers in parking lots ( rolled into light post). VW service first time I brought it in told me it was due to a bad fuel injector which they replaced, when it happened again just this past November they said it was a melted fuse box on top of my lights going out.

Traveling North/West bound on interstate 94 in maple grove, mn. Car suddenly lost power, started stuttering, and then shut off. Waited 2 hours for a tow on the side of the freeway with a 3 year old in 90 degree heat. Was towed to luther West side VW dealer and they found a failure of the high pressure fuel pump. There has been ongoing issues with these pumps in previous model years 2009 and 2010. Those years were investigated by the ntsb previously and the VW warranty for the part was extended as a result. But as of now VW is refusing to fix the part under warranty.
