Well, can't lease one now until the recall is taken care of. Not a good way to launch a product.

Volkswagen is recalling approximately 4,000 of its 2008 Passats and Passat Wagons, along with the 2009 Tiguan. The automaker will fix engine control module software that can trigger an unexpected increase in engine rpm, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Ow. Not a good start for an all new model.
But VW has company: Subaru had a stop sales order on the '09 Forester XT because a few overseas models has severe engine wear.

Curious...where are you getting this recall info? I test drove one and never heard of any recall..I have researched this vehicle and only found that Track & Field edition won't come to USA for awhile and that prices will drop in August. There are people on this site whom purchased the SEL, SE, and S models in June with no engine issues! No mention of recall from them. So, just point me in the direction where I can research this myself...got a link?

Volkswagen is recalling 4,000 2008 Passats and 2009 Tiguans for an "engine surging" issue. The problem is an engine control module that may not control engine idle when the air conditioning is turned on. In rare cases, the ECM can trigger an unexpected jump in engine RPM, which could obviously lead to an accident. NHTSA has informed VW that since the recall is a safety concern, dealers cannot sell the vehicles until the problem has been fixed. Owners of potentially affected vehicles are being told not to operate the air conditioning until a VW dealer has serviced the ECM, which is less than terrific news considering it's June and temperatures are around 90 degrees in many parts of the country. While it's disheartening that the brand new Tiguan is already getting its first recall, at least the problem was discovered early and there's a fix readily available.

I can confirm that VWoA's lease deals are horrible right now.
Both dealers I visited today in Cincinnati confirmed it.
Only got a lease write-up from one of them so far.
Tiguan SE w/ Moonroof - MSRP 29,100
880 down, $530 a month (3/36).
Didn't get a money factor or rate from them - I was speechless, so I probably couldn't talk.
This is almost the same $ as my Touareg that is getting ready to go off lease. (4/48 - $800 down, $535 a month), only difference is, that was a $44,000 car.
Both dealers said Touaregs were sitting - not moving at all, and the Tiguans were only garnering passing interest.
