Thanks for sharing this great tips and information.
I have a VW Tiguan Wolfsburg edition with the 2.0L TSI 16 valve Turbo Engine and the 6 Speed Triptonic Transmission. How reliable is this engine and transmission ? What engines and trans. are the most reliable from VW Audi.? I keep seeing these car backyard mechanics on u tube etc say they are not , and believe in Honda and Toyota’s can run 400 to 500 thousand miles.. They are critical of VW 8 speed automatics…
