Volkswagen Tiguan Owners Manual: Rollover warning

Read and follow the introductory information and safety information firstIntroduction to the subject 

A vehicle's center of gravity affects its rollover characteristics. Since vehicle has higher ground clearance for off-road driving, its center of gravity is also higher than that of standard passenger cars. The higher center of gravity increases the risk of vehicle rollover while driving. Always keep this in mind when driving. Heed the safety information and warnings in this Manual.

Warning

Utility vehicles have a significantly higher rollover rate than other types of vehicles.
  • In a rollover crash, an unbelted person is significantly more likely to die than a person wearing a safety belt.
  • Your vehicle has a higher center of gravity and an increased risk of rollover while driving than a standard passenger vehicle that is not suitable for occasional off-road use.
  • Never drive too fast, particularly through curves, and never attempt extreme driving maneuvers.
  • Always adjust your speed and driving style to road, terrain, traffic, and weather conditions.
  • Transporting luggage or other objects on top of your vehicle raises the center of gravity and can further increase the risk of rollover.
  • Always avoid driving crosswise on a slope ⇒ Driving crosswise on a slope .
  • If stopped crosswise on a slope, never get out of the vehicle using the doors that face downhill. The combined center of gravity of the vehicle and its contents (passengers and load) can shift, causing the vehicle to tip over and roll down the slope. Always exit the vehicle calmly using the doors that face uphill ⇒ Driving crosswise on a slope .
