    Unhappy Tiguan at the panel beaters thread - confessions

    piggy backing off this tread;
    My Tiguan has arrived and this is my experience so far

    Seems quite a few people have had little or not so little mishaps with their Tiguan.

    Has yours been damaged and if so, how was the repair?


    My missus recently left the rear passanger door open when reversing out of the garage... there went the diamond status AAMI insurance premium discount on top of the crippling excess payment

    Car is back now, door looks good. But being in an accident, some dealers may not touch it resale time.

    I wrote about our experience in the thread you mentioned - car was a week and a half and under 1000km old when my wife got hit doing a legal u-turn. Another driver was coming onto the road from a service lane and didn't see her. Smacked pretty hard into the left-rear wheel.

    New wheel ($2400!) from Germany and they also replaced the wheel hub, wheel bearing, control arm, strut, rear bumper. Took about 5 weeks due to getting it back together and the suspension not being quite right and having to order more parts that had to come from Germany but we eventually got it back and it's like absolutely brand new.

    Amex Autobody in Heidelberg West in Melbourne's NE suburbs were awesome.

    Any recommendations for a good quality, easy to use touch up kit?
    Iíve googled plenty but a recommendation from someone who has successfully used one is always better

    I scraped the rear guard down to the metal, only small but gonna rust if I donít treat it...

    I was very lucky, the repairer gave me one.

    Mine got rear ended about 6 weeks ago now. Was stopped at the lights and a drunk plowed into the back doing around 60km. Got the car back after 5 weeks, was around $10k worth of damage. I was thinking of selling it, but has come back good as new, wouldn't know it's been in an accident. Just got back from a 3 day trip to Adelaide and it handled it like a champ, not a rattle/squeak or anything and some of the roads in far west Victoria after Nhill are pretty crap, bounced around all over the place.

    Dropped one of my bikes on mine. Right hand rear door got a 2cm gouge from the brake lever, not easily visible as it's right near the crease line down the bottom.

    Pissed me off no end at the time, but washed it on the weekend and didn't even notice it! So I'll leave it there.

    Our 5 week old RLine got burn't last night when our garage caught fire, believe it was a rechargable screw driver I had plugged in. Damage to front bumper and drivers headlight also maybe a dent in the roof where the door opener fell on it. Waiting for it to be assessed. Busy day today sorting out the garage.
