Volkswagen Tiguan 2013 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Tiguan here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Volkswagen Tiguan 2012: Do I need to get the diesel injectors serviced?

    There’s more factors than distance covered when it comes to diesel fuel-injector lifespan. That said, modern, common-rail diesels do seem to work their injectors pretty hard, so it’s possible that yours will be ready for replacement at 165,000km on the odometer.

    Other elements that will contribute to injector wear are fuel quality, dirty fuel filters, the overall condition of the system including the fuel pump and simply how well the vehicle has been maintained generally. How it’s been driven will also have a bearing on injector life, including whether it’s been used for highway travel, urban running and whether it’s been used to tow relatively heavy loads.

    Fuel-injectors can be rebuilt or reconditioned, but the trade reckons that a reconditioned injector will have about half the useable lifespan of a brand-new replacement injector. As for injector servicing intervals, I’d be guided by what Volkswagen says in its factory service schedule.

  • Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace 2020: Should I wait for the facelifted version?

    It would be very rare for a facelifted version of a car to be less expensive than the one it replaces, Imran and, on balance, the upgrade model usually costs a little more based on more features. At the moment, though, there’s no word on exactly when the facelifted Tiguan will arrive here, nor exactly what the changes and improvements will be, so it’s very difficult to know whether it’s worth waiting for.

    But it is worth mentioning that you’ll be very unlikely to manage a discount on the new version, whereas VW dealers might be a little more motivated to clear the decks of the existing model and will possibly be a bit more keen to negotiate.

    Of course, even if you wait for the upgrade model, there’s a very real chance that we’ll be seeing an all-new Tiguan by 2022 anyway.

  • Should I buy a plug-in hybrid or an electric car?

    The Ford Escape plug-in should be an interesting vehicle when it arrives, with 165kW of power and something like a 50km electric-only range. It will be here sometime this year, but the exact timing is still a trade secret.

    The Toyota RAV4, meanwhile, isn’t a plug-in hybrid, so it can’t be recharged form your home solar panels (which the plug-in Escape could be). Frankly, if you’re making four times the power your household needs with your solar array, you’re in the pound seats for owning a plug-in hybrid which could put that excess electricity generation to very good use. That’s especially true if most of your driving is around town within a 20km radius or so of home-base.

    That said, the new RAV4 Hybrid is gaining rave reviews as well as recording very sharp real-world fuel-economy figures. But a plug-in hybrid in a household with excess solar capacity could almost be run for free.

  • Volkswagen Tiguan 2017: Bubbling effect on the rear tailgate

    It clearly needs deeper investigation to try and determine the cause. Take it to a panel beater who specialises in European cars and have them assess it.
