2020 Volkswagen Tiguan Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Volkswagen's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volkswagen? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem.

Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
