30,000 miles and the front brakes have 80% of the pads left. I am replacing the rears at $270 and all the tires are still good, this is awsome! This is in the Las Vegas heat! VW deserves praise for putting out a small SUV that is more comfortable then a BMW X3 and gets better gas milage than a Honda CRV. The Tiguan is the best kept secret in small SUV'S and the "best" value around.
