For those who own or lease a 2021 or 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV, it’s important to recognize that a number of customer complaints regarding acceleration and powertrain issues have been reported in recent months. Reports of engines that accelerate when the brake pedal is depressed and instances of sudden acceleration continue to arise from those voicing concern over the safety of this make and model. Although the manufacturer has issued three separate safety recalls affecting this make and model, they have not directly addressed these acceleration issues. For now, customers continue to await clear solutions and permanent fixes.
One driver of the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV reported that the vehicle regularly experiences engine acceleration while the driver presses the brake pedal, causing the vehicle to surge forward instead of slow down. This issue has led to a few close calls, and the driver is eagerly awaiting more information about how to address this recurring issue. Another owner reported repeated sudden acceleration issues. Even after a trip to the dealership, no answers were provided.
