Customer Question
Hi. I have...

Hi. I have a nice Tiguan. I want to keep it that way so I want a repair manual so I can preempt the garbage the mechanics here tell me. These guys for example don't know what is a compression test, and generally diagnose problems by calling an "expert" who diagnoses it without seeing the vehicle. That's just tiring.

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Volkswagen Tiguan. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

2013, Euro model, 2.0tsi, awd, 7spd dsg, 19" rims, sport & style bodywork. There is a bearing whine in the transmission at only 60k km, the bluetooth system does not work and the autodimming mirror does not appear to change state, on or off. Thanks.
