Volkswagen Tiguan Owners Manual: Crossing ditches

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

  • Check whether the approach/departure angle and the lateral angle (tilt) are small enough to allow the vehicle to cross the ditch.
  • If possible, cross the ditch at an acute angle ⇒ .
  • This is only possible if the lateral angle (side-to-side tilt) is not too large.

Warning

If the approach/departure angle or the lateral angle of the ditch are too steep for the vehicle, do not attempt to cross the ditch. The vehicle can fall over on its side, slide sideways, or turn over.

Note

If you enter at right angles to the ditch, the front wheels will fall into the ditch. The underbody of the vehicle can get stuck and the vehicle can be damaged or disabled. Getting out of a ditch without assistance is rarely possible, even with all-wheel drive.
