Volks Wagon Hidden Lease Charge

The car was fine. When I took it in for my last service at 30 months, I had them put new tires on even though It was not likely to need them before I turned it in.Volkswagon tries to do a hard press sell when you turn it in. You can't just drop it off at the dealer like I have done with all my other leased vehicles. You have to "meet" with their special person so he can up sell you on a new car or purchase. Well I travel quite a bit and had no time for this , so I just dropped it off and left the keys at the dealer and Volkswagon hit me with a $360 charge, and no this was not for any wear or damage.. The card was under mileage with about 5k miles on a $1000 set of tires that I put on and helped the dealer with some profit. I though I would be dealing with my local dealer on trade in , instead I got this nice bill in the mail above and beyond my last lease payment. This is from a company where their CEO is known criminal , so I guess it trickles down. WILL never go near a Volkswagon again, it was not really about the money either, it was about being treated like a schill.
Love the Tiguan!

I had a 2012 Jetta Sportwagen TDI which was totaled in an accident. I was looking at trading it in because on long highway drives I found the car to be loud. The engine would drone. In a Golf TDI you don't notice this (more sound deadening I guess?)... In any event I decided to buy used and got a great deal on a Tiguan. Pros: Drives great, quiet ride on the highway, nice handling for a suv! Perfect size! Small enough to park easily, big enough to do stuff! Cons: Brakes... not as good as in the jetta, there is a big dead area before the brakes grab.They also squeak! TDI would be nice! Apple Carplay cannot come soon enough to VW vehicles.

i just bought a high end sel on 10-3-11 after a long search and many comparisons. great deal considering the price of $36,900 (internet priced a tad below aol price). this thing drives well and handles great. lots of whiz bang features (my jeep was a 99 so everything was whiz bang to me). very distracting to a gadget newbie. it does have the best look. manly tires! downside is the actual drive. you will feel every bump on the road. seriously, every bump! if you don't mind that then this is the vehicle for you. if you hate your guts vibrating for entire commute go elsewhere (though i am not sure what small suv is NOT a vibrating machine!).
