I have a 2018 Tiguan SE which I am trading in for a Taos SE which is arriving soon. I have "reserved" the car, so first right of refusal when it arrives.
My Tiguan is fine and I've had it for 4.5 years but (1) I like getting new cars and (2) the current trade-in on the Tiguan is ridiculously high so I'm taking advantage of that.

I test drove the 2022 Tiguan and Taos and really fell in love with how the Taos drives (AWD dual clutch). It's a little smaller than the Tiguan but I also have a 2019 Atlas so having a smaller second car is OK. The Taos I have reserved is SE, AWD, sunroof, IQ.Drive which is very similar to the one I test drove. Black exterior with gray interior.

Aside from the many things I like about the car, there are two basic negatives I noticed about the car when I saw it:
  1. No power lift gate. This is one of the things I don't like about my Tiguan although the newer Tiguan SE now has this and remote start
  2. Static trajectory lines in the backup camera (I have dynamic on the Tiguan and Atlas).
I'm quite surprised these two items are not part of the SE or SEL trim level Taos!

Reading reviews here and on other sites, it looks like there have been a few significant recalls which I expect will be fixed on my car before I get it.
Some unfavorable reviews state "I regret making this purchase" and "can't wait to get rid of this car". Others love their Taos. So I'm a little nervous.

So here is where I am at: I love the car, wish for a few things it does not have, and mainly don't want to be one of those who regret their purchase.
I'm looking for current owners to chime in since I think this is more useful than non-owner reviews like Edmunds.

Thanks in advance!

Power liftgate is a common complaint, but doesn't personally bother me... it's not very heavy, but could understand it might be more difficult for shorter people.

My SEL has dynamic backup lines, not sure if that's different based on the trim? The yellow parallel lines definitely curve based on the wheel's direction; it even automatically brakes if there's cross traffic or you're about to bump into something. Do wish it did that bird's eye thing that some luxury cars do, that's a neat trick :)

The Taos is pretty short for an SUV, but the long wheelbase and high roofline makes it feel cavernous inside.

The thing about internet reviews is people only leave them if they either love something or hate something. Make sure your car has had any recalls looked at before taking delivery for sure. Mine personally wasn't affected by the fuel line one.

Personally although it had some minor teething pains as a brand new model, and a little more turbo lag than I'd like... with a couple engine and MIB software updates, I'm extremely satisfied with it.

Welcome!
Took us a bit to get used to the overall Taos experience. Coming from a performance built & tuned RWD Infiniti G37 it was quite a change going to a FWD that is more economy based regarding overall performance and mpg. Since yours is going to be AWD you will have different suspension & transmission so I can't comment on that. We really like the overall handling of the Taos, there's a bit more body roll than we had w/ our Infiniti (which was on rather firm coilovers) but it goes into and out of the corners w/ control and predictability. The biggest thing we had to get used to was the turbo response and trying to get the smoothest transition from a dead stop to a smooth takeaway. I now have that part of the equation pretty much solved and it's a blast getting around town for the most part. The transmission performance is fantastic, always seems to be inb the right rpm range for the task at hand and shifts are very quick. No problem w/ passing acceleration and gets up from a stop in very reasonable time. Our overall mpg seems to be in the low 30s, when we go on extended highway road trips we get high 30s to just about 40 mpg, so that's been just fine.

We find the overall drive to be quiet and composed, not much road & wind noise and the overall vehicle seems to be solid, no rattles that we've noticed. The passenger side front door seems to be a bit miss-aligned as it sticks a bit when opening and closing. I've read on the site from another member that it was a simple adjustment, so when I take the VW in for it's first free oil change I'll have them adjust it. Great adaptive cruise control, auto wipers, auto headlight dim/bright. The black wheel package looks great and the wheels seem to be of nice quality. Panoramic sunroof is such a nice feature, really makes the entire Taos feel larger and works very well! Love the heavy Monster Mats, great fit and purpose. The rear cargo cover fits well and does a nice job keeping cargo out of sight. Love the overall headroom and all the room for the driver and passengers, dont's really knwo how VW managed to get so much room out of such a small footprint, but huge Kudos for that, it's quite amazing really.

We did have a CEL light come on, this was a fuel venting valve/pump at 1000 miles, the dealer ordered the part, cleared the code and the CEL never came back on, I'm not going to have it replaced as it seems to be working fine now, I assume this valve is a bit sticky at first and works better as time passes, time will tell :)

A few things I'm not a fan of~
~No sunglass holder w/ the Panoramic sunroof
~ESS bypass button located to the upper right of shift knob making it hard to see and access, would be better on the driver side of shifter.
~Lane assist, I'm old so something I doubt I'll ever get used to, it works but I just find it too obtrusive.
~Not easy to use trip meter function, again, I'm old and just doesn't seem easy to access.
~Those rear trunk blocks, I suppose they would be more usefull if you didn't have to move them around often, but for us it's hard to keep un-sticking them, moving them and putting them back together when they come apart. They came as a combo pkg w/ the rear cover, mats, and roadside assistance pkg, so they weren't really something we considered.
~The European wiper system, these tuck down below the hood and have to be put into service mode to fully lift the wiper arms. I suppose this serves an aerodynamic purpose, but much prefer just a simple setup like all my previous vehicles.
~Chrome accents, this isn't a problem with the car, I'm just not a chrome fan, I've blacked-out most of the chrome w/ the exception of the roof rails, I'll probably do those too eventually.

Here's our Taos for reference (after the blacked out trim) and hope my post didn't put you to sleep, lol.

Personally I find the lane assist comforting (you can turn it off) but the steering wheel will definitely wrestle you if you're trying to change lanes if you don't signal or the blind spot indicator is on. I'm good about signaling, but it will also fight you if you're taking an exit where you don't need to signal but the lane makers diverge. Overall I appreciate that it's looking out for me.

A lot of cars' lane assist feature has a full-on alert sound which is irritating, so I prefer the steering wheel feedback instead. (It's described as a vibration in the owner's model, but it's really more of a resistance—it's not hard to overcome, but it's definitely noticeable).

I did have a rental Kia before buying the Taos that would do active lane centering at any speed, without requiring ACC to be active. In the Taos, without Travel Assist on, Taos will push you back into your lane once, but if you drift out again without putting torque on the wheel after the first correction, there's a loud ding and it complains that you're not driving in the center of the lane.

Still really like driving my Taos Highline/SEL after 7 months. I’ve only had two very minor issues: oil level too high when purchased (dealer technician overfill) and driver door handle button locks but won’t unlock since temperature went below freezing. I’m coming from Audi A6, BMW 530 wagon, and RAV4. I’ve completed three 4-hour round trips and find the highway ride smooth and acceleration very adequate - the early computer setting update made a big difference. Seats and seating position are comfortable for me. I have an annual 24 hour round trip planned for summer. That will be the real comfort test. Lots of rear seat legroom for the times I have passengers in back. Impressed with fuel economy. 4Motion handles very well in snow. I would buy the same Taos today as I did in July 2021.

True, just turn it off if you don't want the assist and like you mentioned, it's a feature that is looking after your safety. I'd imagine a time will come where I feel I'd better use it, but for the time being I'll leave if off :)
Like I said, I'm almost 60 and never had any of these assist features so it's all a bit too much to get used to, hell, I still have a flip phone lol (but the wife has a real one :) )
Still trying to get used to all the features w/ the touchscreen, and one other thing I wish the Taos had (at least in FWD SE trim) is an audio out jack or a USB that I could use for my MP3 player. I know there's alternatives, but I like that setup.

I'm 37 and work in tech, so I like the modern stuff :)

I believe you can use a USB drive for MP3s. (It's USB type-C so you'll need to use an A-to-C adapter or buy a C-type drive).

When I told my mom flip phones were going away within a few years, she stocked up on a few of them ha. Then her brother got her an iPhone for her 70th birthday and to our surprise she loves it. (She even called me and was wowed by the fact it can give GPS directions, ha!)

This was an item I forgot to check so I emailed the salesperson about it. He said he went out and checked a Taos SEL on the lot and the lines did not move with the steering wheel, but I'm hoping he just didn't check thoroughly. Thanks

The Taos is far from perfect but given its price point and market segment, it packs a whole lot of styling, features, safety, and quality. I have an SE but would have bought an SEL - primarily for the sound system, leather, and pro cockpit - if one had been available. The Japanese and Korean OEM SUVs pack a lot more bells and whistles for roughly the same price as a nicely equipped SE FWD with IQ drive and Convenience package.

VW priced the Taos S for the first-time buyer wanting the VW quality and the European styling. An SEL 4Motion equipped with just a few options will MSRP at $36.4K (not counting destination fee).

But I wish they had not gone so cheap as to cut out the glove box light - even though the owners manual says there is one!

They cut a lot of corners. Lumbar does not move up and down, for example, even though the manual says it does. But I agree, it hit a niche for me today that the Hyundai, Honda, KIA and Crosstrek did not.
Agreed—it is a bit expensive, but it is German after all.

I cannot stand Subaru's styling (I feel as if they make their cars intentionally ugly). I also drove some Hyundais (OK but unremarkable), Toyotas (kind of blah styling, hideous interior design, laughably bad infotainment system), Mazda CX-30 (outstanding engine and handling performance, but I don't like Mazda's resistance to touch screens and ultra-heavy steering) and Kias (I feel like they're really killing it overall lately, but they didn't have the size I was looking for, and the one that was close looked like a toy).

I was also considering a CPO Q3, but Audi upcharges for literally everything—I could buy a brand new Taos with everything I liked for less than a used Q3.

I liked the Taos a lot because of:
  • The technology. The SEL (and SE with some options) has great tech like iq.drive (love the auto-highbeams, Travel/Traffic Assist, safety tech), big center display, wireless CarPlay, and a really really cool digital cockpit. And VW is smart to leave critical controls like HVAC to real buttons and knobs. I hate the trend of making everything touch screen (polar opposite of Mazda which forces you to use the wheel to get around things like CarPlay which is more distracting, IMO).
  • The packaging. Not too long, but the interior feels HUGE (especially with the moonroof), the back seats are roomy, and there is plenty of storage space. The big windows, big mirrors, and high roofline are outstanding for visibility. The seats are really comfortable as well.
  • The styling. Typical German understated, but handsome. Some Asian automakers are taking "futuristic" too seriously (Subaru going the opposite direction to "clunky.") The interior isn't as luxurious as the Q3, but I think it looks really nice and everything is very sensibly laid out.
  • The fuel efficiency—best in segment for fully-ICE.
  • The handling, it is very confident in corners and definitely "feels German," almost like a big Golf. I like that the steering is effortless at low speeds and tightens up on the highway—best of both worlds. It just feels easy to drive and very competent overall. I grew up driving my parents' Audi A4 6-speed and it just feels like home.
My next car will be electric, but I moved from NYC to Atlanta for work and needed a car very quickly, and electric vehicles are basically all backordered, sometimes many months in the future—and I think the technology will mature significantly by the time I'm looking to buy a new car.

That said, VW could really learn a lesson from Asian automakers by making more safety tech standard. Things like automatic braking/forward collision mitigation, which has shown to be incredibly effective, should not be an uncharge or part of the "iq.drive" pacakge.

SEL 4Motion here and definitely have dynamic lines. There are a few different backup camera modes, so quite likely that you'll just need to cycle to the one you like.

I had a 2017 Tiguan (and before that, a 2009), and wasn't crazy about the new Tiguan styling, so I traded it in and leased a Taos SE. I think it might actually be a little wider and taller than the Tiguan; if not, it sure seems that way.

I like the handling, but that lurch during acceleration takes some getting used to. I think I'm finally adjusting to it after a few month. It's a very comfortable ride, very little wind or road noise. I don't miss a sun/moon roof -- my old one leaked and was very expensive to fix. I like not having to plug in my iPhone to use CarPlay, although the touchscreen gets a little grimy with fingerprints in a short time. Looking forward to some long road trips this summer to really check out the fuel economy. So far, it's significantly better than the Tiguan. Overall, I've been very happy with the Taos.

To be honest I'm completely baffled by the other modes... and it always resets to the default one anyway.

Hi,
I am new a Taos 2022 owner in Canada. My overall experience in last 3 weeks is good but still trying to get used to the engine/turbo response which lags a bit at start. You mentioned that you got it resolved now, so just want to understand whether it was something you had VW fix for you or just got used to it?
Thanks.

In my case, VW installed an ECU update which helped (didn't eliminate, but improved)

I switched the driving mode to Economy and the rest was just basically just time in the seat, it's very easy to go from a dead stop now.

No power lift gate ? It doesn’t even have a strap to grab. My wife is 5’ tall and cannot reach the gate at all.
