How reliable is a VW Tiguan?

I have a full-size SUV, but I’m looking to downsize a bit as I get ready to move into the city. Is the Tiguan a reliable compact SUV?

First, good luck on your big move!
When you’re used to driving a particular type of vehicle, it’s normal to wonder if other versions of it can be equally reliable. Volkswagens are generally fairly reliable vehicles, but just how reliable is the VW Tiguan?
Unfortunately, the Tiguan doesn’t score veru well on reliability with drivers or reviewers. In fact, Consumer Reports surveys rated the Tiguan’s reliability only 1/5 for the last three years, and JD Power rates the compact SUV’s quality and reliability as merely average.
As you’re preparing to scale down to a smaller SUV, you may do better to look elsewhere than the VW Tiguan to make sure you get a reliable ride. While you’re at it, you should let Jerry check on your car insurance’s to make sure it’s as reliable as it can be too.
