VW Taigun Owner Recalls the AC Issue
The video has been uploaded by Daksh Agnihotri on YouTube. The YouTuber interacts with the Taigun owner. He was among the first owners to raise the issue of poor zircon performance in Taigun. Thereafter, the company took notice and has assured solution for the same. According to his own experience, he had to keep the SUV at the service centre for about 2 months due to an accident. Apart from that, he had to drive the SUV for around a month without the AC working properly. He mentions that the AC would trip in bumper-to-bumper traffic for long durations.
He somehow managed to get by as he has another spare car. Nevertheless, he is still not confident about the solution and reserves his comments and feedback until the summer season arrives again and he gets to test the AC in real time. That is a fair statement. He also tells that he owned the Polo for 10 years and was very happy with it. But he can’t say the same for the Taigun because of the AC issue and even the service centre officials having no clue of how to solve this problem.
