The smell comes from mold and mildew which accumilates because of moisture left behind by the ac the ac could be malfunctioning but make sure that it is completely on cold at the lowest (coldest setting) and it will only get so cold the system has r-134 in it unlike the traditional r-12 it only cools down to about 30-35 degrees.

First is your car still under warranty? If not we are working on an 09 Tiguan that wants to sometimes wants to die out at stops.We are replacing the in tank fuel pump and fuel pump control module.

Windshield wipers on new vw tiguan had loud sound and went out


A gear is broken inside of the motor, it sounds like the wipers were frozen to the windshield. This not supposed to happen. it is a bad design.
Since you are under warranty, I would talk the the Service Manager at a VW Dealership.
