Re: Need to improve

If you take out a VW maintenance and service plan, breakdown recovery is included. I have a three year plan which covers three services, first MOT, maintenance cover (although there are exceptions like tyres etc) and VW breakdown recovery for second and third years after first year manufacturer (or...

Re: Totally unbelievable

Coronavirus won't have helped but even in 'normal' times this business of waiting many months for a new car in the UK is just bonkers. Both the Tiguan and Ateca we ordered were already built and in transit - Tiguan was at the dealer 8 days after we ordered it and Ateca took 3.5 weeks (but the dealer...

They say it’s similar size to the Tiguan and it sits between the standard Tiguan and the Tiguan Allspace.
Thanks - in that case it must be pretty tight for adult shoulder room in the back - although I suppose for most users that's not going to be a regular issue.

Re: VW ID.4

I see that production models have started to appear. Apparently due for launch at the end of this year in the UK. https://www.tiguanforums.co.uk/download/file.php?id=6544 . Wonder how wide it is? Those haunches look like they'll be a nightmare on the country lanes around here and in car parks.

Re: Update following my accident

From your description of the accident on the earlier thread, wasn't it the van driver's fault? If so then your insurance company should be pursuing him for any losses incurred by you such as loan car, insurance excess etc. Do you have legal expense cover with your insurance? If so, they should be o...

Re: VW Main Dealer Service Today 27th of May 2020

Dealers generally hate "waiting" appts as it makes it more tricky to schedule work into the workshop - not been for a while but VW Chester only allowed one in the morning and one in the afternoon. To be fair, the only time I used it, on daughter's Golf, I was in and out of the deaership in under an ...

Re: 129mph Tiguan in Tamworth

Worth noting, if you do like to "press on" a bit, the distance at which the speed was recorded - 564 metres. They can can check up to 1km.

So it's no good reacting once you spot them - it's already too late.

Re: 129mph Tiguan in Tamworth

Either way if it was up to me I would hand them a 5 year ban for that sort of speed. Blimey - don't ever go to Germany! I know it's out of place in the UK, but if it was on a quiet M6 Toll it's not that bonkers. Did you see the recent video doing the rounds of the Audi doing 200MPH? Amazingly effor...

Re: VW Customer Services

I fully understand your frustration but remember VW Customer Services are not VW direct, it is another company called Capita who deal with you, and all they can tell you is what VW tell them. I feel sorry for the Capita employees on the end of the phone as they must also get frustrated with the lac...
