How Long Can a Volkswagen Tiguan Limited Last?
Tiguan is one capable, safe, and well-equipped SUV -- quintessentially VW. Yours should last you decades, for 100,000 miles or more. You just have to service it regularly, not to mention take care of the occasional problem common to the line. Shop with us here at Quick Volkswagen Parts for the job; we've got all the parts and accessories you'll need for it.
Common VW Tiguan Repairs
TSI direct-injection engines sometimes end up with carbon clogging up the air intake, causing power loss and rough idling, making the Check Engine light turn on, and feeding back P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303, or P0304 error codes.
What you'll have to do is take the intake manifold out and clean it, including the ports on the cylinder head and the valves. If this doesn't work, you may have to replace it.
Luckily, the replacements we sell are genuine Volkswagen -- OEM quality, as reliable as what your Tiguan got from the factory. Not so, a lot of aftermarket engine parts.
Hearing a clunk when you speed up, and feeling it underfoot? Maybe you've noticed this, plus that your front-end alignment's not quite right. This issue here, commonly called "VW subframe clunk," is stretched subframe bolts; what's happening is the subframe is hitting the bottom of the SUV when you accelerate. You need to replace the bolts and spacers.
We've got new ones for you; they're discounted from MSRP and backed by warranty, so you can buy with confidence that you'll be getting an exceptional value.
If you hear popping after starting or when slowing down, and the Check Engine light turns on, there's a good chance the leak detection pump in the fuel system's the problem. (This is even more likely if the pops stop and fuel economy worsens, you start getting P2404 and/or P0441 error codes, you can't start after filling the tank, and you start vibrating when slowing down.)
What it's doing is filling the gas tank with air when it finds a fault, and then releasing it to retest the system to make sure it's working right again. It's actually the system's EVAP system purge (N80) valve that's the issue; it's probably stuck open, so the tank can't pressurize properly. You'll need to replace it.
Don't worry; you can start browsing replacement valves right away -- no guessing needed about what'll be compatible. Just select your Tiguan model year and trim/engine in our catalog, and what'll fit will show up.
