    Thumbs down New 2019 Tiguan Fails Autonomous Emergency Braking Tests (30km/h and 50km/h)

    What a disgrace

    "The Tiguan proves an enigma. It fails its first 30km/h run by completely ignoring the target, though on its second attempt, it sparks the collision warning and partially brakes but still collides. A third attempt sees no response at 30km/h, however a final retest later in the day sees it stop before impact, but only at 30km/h."

    Settle down fanboy

    More like VW need to update their defective hardware / software and get their tech working right

    Being out-tech by Subaru ... says it all

    Sounds like you should apply for the role of head engineer in Wolfsburg.

    Or General Manager of Volkswagen Australia..

    You clearly have a passion for everything wrong with the brand and are the only person who can fix it.

    Incompetence and Corruption always starts from the top ... as the Banking Royal Commission has shown

    Im sure that VW engineers done their testing and Id have more faith in them than some bunch of journalist from drivedotcomdotau.

    This is great for all those situations where a giant balloon jumps out in front of my car at 30kph

    Ahhh the balloons ... look out !!!

    The balloon has an ANCAP logo so I assume it was used for ANCAP testing

    Is ANCAP testing now rubbish as well ?

    Many problems have been reported by owners, mostly in the UK and Europe surrounding this system and false emergency stops and there is at least one legal case in the UK over it unless that has been settled. I am surprised this has taken so long to be raised in the media TTTT. The first one is the one I am think of, it got a very long thread in the Pommy Tiguan forum

    The Volkswagen Tiguan that can't handle Cornish roads and brakes automatically prompting crash fears from former traffic cop - Cornwall Live

    Everyone's advice needed please! - VW Tiguan MK2 Forums

    Brakes drove us to despair, say owners of new Volkswagen Tiguan | The Crusader | Finance | Express.co.uk
