I am torn between Tiguan 2020 and Buick Encore GX. I have read a lot of poor reviews for reliability on the Tiguan. Also the gas mileage isn’t great. How unreliable is the Tiguan?
2020 vehicle is going to be new is it not and not preowned ? Then you will have a warranty and if you don’t plan to keep it for much longer than the bumper to bumper warranty then just buy what you want.
But if you are concerned about the VW now how are you going to feel if it does have problems ? Answer is ’ Really bad '.
Then why would you get one?
It’s on Consumer Reports’ list of Worst Used Cars for model years 2012, 13, 16, 18 and 19, because of much-worse-than-average reliability based on CR member responses to their Annual Auto Surveys.
It is definitely too early for anyone to have compiled reliability stats on a 2020 model, but, based on the past reliability record for the Tiguan (along with most VW models)-- as mentioned by shanonia–I would think that this is a model to avoid.
How about a Mazda CX-5?
