    2012 Tiguan vibrating around 60km/h + little grinding sound at 2500rpm

    I just bought 2012 Tiguan Comfortline 4Motion a week ago and from day 1 I noticed that the car vibrates as it approaches 40-60km/h. If I change the speed out of that range, the car shifts gear either up or down and the vibration disappears. So I guess the car vibrates at certain gear, whichever it is. I've never driven a VW before and I don't know if it's normal for this engine.
    Another thing I noticed is the well known wastegate problem at 2500rpm. It doesn't rattle as loud as others have described, but I do hear clear whirring sound whenever the car enters that rpm.
    I am taking my car to the dealer tomorrow but I want to know from you guys, especially the first problem. Other than those 2 problems I mention, I absolutely love the car.
    I really appreciate your input. Thanks!

    to the forum fellow Canucks. Sorry to hear that each of you happen to have the same problem it appears on brand new 2012 Tiguans, WTF. If you are getting nowhere with your service technician, then try the service manager and keep escalating until someone pays attention. I mean, you guys aren't dreaming here or making this up.

    Best of luck to both of you!

    Cheers!

    Re: 2012 Tiguan vibrating around 60km/h + little grinding sound at 2500rpm

    I have the same problem in 2011 Tiguan 4 that I purchased 4 weeks ago. I have taken it to the dealer and tire shops six times! Tried everything from road force balance on to changing two rear tires on my own expense. still have the same problems. Vibration between 40-60 miles that keeps my legs shaking!. In addition, I also get this weird rattle noise from the turbo unit and the dealer ordered a clamp that is back order for three weeks! The dealers is whashing their hands off from the vibration problem ! I am stuck and started to hate what appeared to be a nice car! Could it be any of the electronic modules? Any suggestion ?

    Do any of you have a set of mounted winter tires that could be put on to see if you get the same vibrations? If you get no vibrations then it's down to either the tires or the wheels. If you still get the vibrations then other areas need to be looked at.

    Just a thought.

    Please anyone who has the same problem call customer care at the following phone number 1-800-822-8987 to submit his complaint. Dealers doesn't escalating this issue (your complaints) to VW America or Canada.
    Yet for all new prospective buyer of a 2012 Tiguan test drive it a longer time to feel the problem and wait until the resolution of that issue.

    I am not comfortable to recommend this model to anyone.


    Thank you.

    same problems. the vibrating around 60 km/h and the 2500 rpm sound. About the vibrating, I notice it mostly in 5th gear.

    Assuming it's an auto, try driving it in "S" and see if it's still there at the same speed. If not it's probably just the "lugging" feel when the engine is running at low revs. Just a thought but it will then show you if it's a drive train issue or not anyway.

    I also bought Tiguan 2012 last year (amazing) here in Kuwait. I feel this vibration between 75 to 80 km/hr. after going 5 times to dealer they have changed some shaft and now it is quit reduced but little still there. do not know the exact reason may be roads or ???. I want to check it before I go again there. here in Kuwait warrantee cover is very good .

    Re: 2012 Tiguan vibrating around 60km/h + little grinding sound at 2500rpm

    I'm new to the forum.
    My 2012 Tiguan is 2 weeks old. I am having the same noise at 40-60km/h. I am not comfortable with this either. I am going to try driving is "S" mode for a while. I have read that the new car has a learning car for the driver.
    I think the computer needs reprogramming.

    Re: 2012 Tiguan vibrating around 60km/h + little grinding sound at 2500rpm

    I have light vibration - but that's between 1500rpm - 1800rpm and NOT at 2500rpm and over.But the vibrations are inconsequential.Due to the transmission tweaks (for better fuel efficiency) our 2012 Tiguans goes for the highest gear as fast as possible.Lightly tap more on the accelerator pedal on and off or keep it above by using the manual mode.Take this advice: When it comes to a new generation (or redesign), wait for 2 months to a year.So you don't get the first batch manufactured which USUALLY have the glitches, assembly imperfections, etc... I waited for 2 months, so far... no problems - I hope none ever.Since the vehicle is still new... follow the engine break-in period because the computer does not contain any record of YOUR driving habits yet.It is still learning and getting used to You,
