Vokswagen Tiguan Reviewers- latest updateTue, 28 Jul 2009 00:00:00 -0700
A bunch of VW Tiguan Reviewers
There have already been two groups of reviewers, and some have them have been a bit barking. One guy, Stefan, thought the VW Tiguan had performance like a scalded cat. Good thing we didn’t ask him to do our Jaguar XFR Review last week – he’d have exploded! Others have taken the Tiguan camping, on a cross-country busking trip and to tow random vehicles around an industrial estate.
The third group of reviewers have now been given the keys to a Tiguan (brave people at VW!). They are Kaela Marshall, an expecting mum from the Manchester area who works as a residential childcare worker, Harriet Gore from Lancashire, an entertainer and charity worker and Peter Selous Jones from the Eastbourne area, a competitive skier and volunteer fireman.
Kaela will hitch a horse box to the Tiguan and head to the beach. “I wanted to go the Welsh coast and gallop through the water. The horse loves it.” There is only one complication to the plan. Kaela is expecting her first child, so horseback riding is out of the picture. But the plan will go ahead. Kaela has recruited her friend Kathy and her horse, Corrie, to make the trip.
Harriet is using the Tiguan to raise awareness for a cause she’s been involved with for some time — Romanian Relief, a charity for under-privileged children in Romania. Harriet travelled to Romania a year ago to teach the children there sign language. “This week, I’ll be travelling to lots of children’s parties in the Lancashire area to raise awareness, to raise lots of money.”
Peter will stay closer to home. He has little choice. He’s on duty for the local fire brigade. He may need to use the Tiguan to report to an emergency. “As a local fireman, yes, it’s a possibility,” he says. So he’ll have an excuse to blat to the local retained fire station when his beeper goes off. Not that that will wash with plod!
The voting’s finished on the first group of reviewers, and Eric was named the winner. VW has now opened up voting on the second lot – Di Coke, Johnny Hindle and Patrick Molyneux – so if you want to have a look at their efforts you can vote.
More updates in a week or two. I’m not sure how credible these reviews are professionally, but some of them are a bit of a laugh. But they are trying hard. Very hard. You never know, they may throw up the next Clarkson yet!
