Would advise getting it done, especially if you have extended warranty.

My SA advised of the same a few months ago when I sent the car for a general check up.
I think there is some confusion.

At the third service or 45000km what is recommended is Haldex oil change also called high performance fluid in VAG parlance.

DSG oil or transmission oil is scheduled for change at every fourth service or 60000km interval.

You're right!
3year / 45K includes high performance transmission fluid which is what's causing the confusion.
4 year / 60K is Dual Clutch Transmission Fluid change which is pricier.

Thank you!

I just did end of 4 years service which would mean 60000Km when actually I have only done 35000Kms. I am attaching the bill. the total comes to about 24-25000Rs in Mumbai.
Hope this helps.
Thank you for the invoice details. I have gone through the details again and they have changed the gear oil and charged for that. Additionally, I have asked them to do Wheel alignment and balancing. They have also charged me for EGR and Exhaust system removal and reinstall which according to them is required at 36K (which I doubt now). There is also minor stuff like AC disinfection and service plus (whatever it is worth).

I have also noticed that your service is under some B2B plan. Is it under a lease program? And finally, do you mind sharing the service centre you have used? They seem to be more reasonable guys than the Autobahn Mumbai.

Re: Volkswagen Tiguan : Official Review

Hi, that B2B is bumper to bumper. I had purchased that plan about 3 years back from the dealer I had bought the car from.
It is an interesting story. I don't know if our forum rules permit commercial details.
Here goes
2017 July when the car came out I was very interested as I had driven a 15 model Tiguan abroad and had liked it.
The VW West showroom did not have it. Out of the blue I got a call from Vashi Autobahn offering a test drive anytime. So they came to Lokhandwala Andheri and I got an extended test drive.
The ride quality on those Lo profile tyres in the Hi-Line was not satisfactory. Also run flat tyres are definitely a bad idea if you drive away from big city limits.
I tried to to convince them to sell me the Hi-Line but with 17 in rims. I don't think anybody was clued up enough to make changes to the software. So they refused.
I bought the comfort line instead. Only thing I miss is the sunroof.
Was delivered the car in about 3 weeks but RTO would not register the car as they were confused on 2 things. 1. The accounting had changed to GST but original invoice from factory had sales tax.
2. The VW company name also changed from VW to Skoda-VW.
The car was delivered with a TC plate to my home and was not driven at all.
So it took about a month for the dealers to sort out with RTO Andheri and I finally got the registration.
This delay made the sales people very apologetic and they promised to give me some discount in any future transactions.
After a year later, when this comprehesive service contract by Autobahn Vashi was being offered to new car buyers only, I managed to get it for my 1.5 year old car for a hefty discount.
I had to use the Vashi workshop for 1 year. As this was a deal from Autobahn.
Then the service center at Ram Mandir Jogeshwari which I think was called Automark was also taken over by Autobahn. This was much closer to me, and since then I have been going there only.
I had issues about aircon gas leaks which was not repaired well at this workshop so I had to escalate the matter to VW and MD Autobahn.
Now it works well, and I have been happy with the service at Ram Mandir Autobahn.
And they have not tried to sell me unnecessary service or accessories.
Hope that clarifies.

Hi, that B2B is bumper to bumper. I had purchased that plan about 3 years back from the dealer. I had worked out then the standard cost and it was little cheaper. But I think all the xtrawork done due aircon problems and also wheel sensor change etc. It was value for money.

Hi

I needed a help with the exhaust chrome tips. Recently i had ordered the same from a VW dealership with part no.
000071913A CH9.

The part that has been delivered to me bears part no. 5C1071910 which is engraved on the chrome tips itself. However, the box bears the part number that i had requested for (After confirming from the brochure).

I tried installing them and it wasn't a perfect fit either.

Could you confirm what is the part number you got. A close up photo of the same would be really helpful to gauge the fit.

Thanks

Re: Volkswagen Tiguan : Official Review

Quick update from me TBHPians as I have been bothering this thread a lot.

Finally after waiting for a long time for the new Tiguan to launch, I went ahead and booked a car which was not even in my consideration forget shortlist.

Recently, my office decided to partially start working from office which would make it mandatory for me get a car at the earliest (I sold my XUV in Jan and have been pushing the decision of purchase since then). With no confirmed news on Tiguan launch and if it being a CBU/CKD, and due to the rumor/probability of this being over 40lacs onroad inclusive of extended warranty and Service package, just makes it beyond my stretched budget of 38 lacs.

The only other alternative was Superb (every other car was already dropped for some or other reason) and I almost closed it at a really good price, but somehow at the very last minute ended up taking a TD of a car that I had ignored all this while- "T-Roc" and I don't know what happened but it just felt right and I ended up booking it .

Please don't ask me the reason why and I can understand people questioning my logic here, since it's not even in same segment, unnecessarily expensive for what it offers, lacks features that are now common in almost all cars in a segment below it and I do feel it should have at least offered cruise control if not anything else. There is simply no logic or justifiable reason that I could offer to the enthusiastic and knowledgeable community.

Somehow, I ended up with my heart over my mind (of course this was after my first love "Tiguan" was not in consideration). I feel, this may be due to how much it reminds me of my first generation VW Polo, but still unsure

I shall get delivery around the first/second week of September and I shall keep you all posted on T-Roc thread.

Congratulations!

The Tiguan 5 seater 2.0TFSi will most likely be a CBU, with expected pricing around 38L-40L given they would attract 20% RTO tax. Looking at how VW is acting, I think it would be a good 30-60 days more before launch and deliveries begin.

Just a thought, have you considered the A4? A member picked up one at Rs. 39L OTR Mumbai.

Thanks for sharing info on Tiguan, only reaffirms my decision of going ahead with purchase of T-Roc. For some odd reason, demand for T-Roc suddenly spiked and my dealer sold about 17 this Aug (4 by my SA himself) and they are soon going to be running out of stock. As per dealer, only some units of white are left with them and possibly most other dealers in country have already run out of stock and Pune dealer is the one who is supporting dealers in Bangalore and Kolhapur for any orders.

Now coming to your question, My best option after Tiguan (and my mind still thinks that was the best) was Skoda Superb. With the discounts I negotiated I was getting a lot more car for my bucks, anyone in market do consider that and negotiate hard, really hard (Tip: move the negotiation period to around 24-25th of the month). In my case, and apologies for repeating myself somehow heart just wanted a large sized polo/Golf and was in peace with T-Roc

I did not consider big 3 at all, as somehow I still consider myself middle class and I don't think at this point I will be able to afford to maintain those given what I have read on this forum. Maybe the next one, but the chances are by that time I will be considering EVs (hopefully) and in my budget I might need to settle for brands like these only, though you never say never

Re: Volkswagen Tiguan : Official Review

Michelin now has 235/55 R18 in Primacy 4 and Latitude Sports 3. This is the Highline tyre size. Has anyone tried these?

I have used Pilot Sports on other cars and loved it.

Should I go with Hankook or switch to Michelin Primacy 4?

Hello All:

Just thought I share the details of the work carried out + invoice amount for the third year service of Tiguan. Please note that I had taken up a SVP last year for 2 years for 38,999. The service tasks carried out is as mentioned by VW in their website barring one item - Axle Oil which costs around 2 K. I checked with the SA a few times on why they are doing something which is not mentioned in the website. However, the SA was of the opinion that it is needed and they have been doing this since years . Anyway I didn't want argue too much. All in all the total cost for me was around 30 K (if I take into account the amount paid for SVP)

I am sure it's the Michelin India website that has got you excited!

I was in the same boat few days back and dropped a query on the website regarding the availability of these options in this particular size. The customer care representative confirmed that this size is not available yet in India.

I think you would also have the option of Continental sport contact 5 in this size as VW offered it in Allspace along with Hankooks.

But Michelin continues to elude!

You are right, I saw it on Michelin website. I suspected the same as it was not listed in any of the tyre shop's websites.

Thanks for the additional info.

Quote for Hankook was 24k per tyre. Do you know how much is Continental sport contact 5?
